Notices of Decisions and Documents Evidencing Lawful Status

Effective January 27th, 2015, the final rule for Notices of Decisions and Documents Evidencing Lawful Status will amend regulations on when U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will “correspond with, issue a notice of decision to, or provide documents to an applicant, petitioner, or requester, and/or an attorney of record or accredited representative.”

The rule explains how a person can consent to have notices and secure identification documents sent directly to a designated representative.

This rule will help attorneys with clients that change their address frequently, or for clients who have a longer wait time for immigration visas. Notices can be sent to their attorney on record or accredited representative working on their case. This will allow the representative or attorney to be on top of any changes or notifications for their client’s case.

USCIS will update Form G-28, Notice of Entry of Appearance as Attorney or Accredited Representative to reflect these changes. The form is still under review. Until it is approved, the current Form G-28 edition date of 02/28/2013 will still be accepted.
