  • News: USCIS Publishes Tips On G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative: Tips for Lockbox Facility Filings

    Form Information

    General Instructions

    • Complete a separate form for each client.
    • Complete the form electronically if possible. The 2D barcode technology helps us collect information quickly and accurately. As you complete the form electronically, the barcode stores your information.
    • If you handwrite your answers, use black ink, keep data in the space provided, and ensure the information is legible.
    • Never use highlighters or correction fluid or grey out any part of the form.

    Information about you

    • List the name of the Attorney or Accredited Representative in Part 1.
    • Ensure these required fields are complete in Part 1:
      • last name
      • first name
      • street address
      • city
      • state or province
      • zip code or postal code
    • Ensure your signature is present in Part 4.

    Information about your client

    • List the name of your client in Part 3.
    • Enter your client’s name exactly as it appears on the related benefit form.
      • If filing a petition (e.g., Form I-130; Form I-140), enter the petitioner’s information (not the beneficiary’s).
      • If filing an application, enter the applicant/beneficiary’s name.
    • Ensure these required fields are complete in Part 3:
      • last name
      • first name
    • Ensure your client’s signature is present in Part 3.

    Filing Locations

    • Send the Form G-28 with an application/petition filed at a USCIS Lockbox facility.
    • If your client received a receipt notice, but you did not, it is likely that your G-28 was not properly filed. 
    • Do not send a follow-up Form G-28 to a Lockbox facility.
    • Send follow-up Forms G-28 to the USCIS office where the case was assigned. Be sure to include the Receipt Number of the associated application/petition on Form G-28 in Part 3, Question 7.
