Update: USCIS Extends Grace Period for Accepting Previous Version of the Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Representative Form
Older Version of Form G-28 Accepted Until Further Notice
WASHINGTON — U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today that the previous version of the Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Representative (Form G-28) will be accepted until further notice.
On Oct. 1, 2009, USCIS announced the publication of a new Form G-28 and provided a 30-day grace period, until Oct. 30, for accepting previous versions at the USCIS Lockbox facilities or USCIS Service Centers. USCIS encourages attorneys and accredited representatives to use the new Form G-28, however, USCIS will not reject filings of the previous Form G-28 version until further notice. This will allow law students who represent immigrants to use the previous form until changes can be made to the form to accommodate their unique situation.
To obtain the new Form G-28, and instructions for completing the form, please visit the Forms section of the USCIS website.
