Form G-1145 Instructions

USCIS Form-G 1145 must be filled in as follows:

  1. The applicant (petitioner) should enter their full last name, full first name, and full middle name in the table. They should also add their e-mail address and mobile phone number. The completed form is attached to the top of the first page of an immigration form of the applicant.
  2. The E-Notification does not include the personal information of the applicant, because an e-mail and a text message are not considered secure ways to transmit such information. The notification lists the receipt number of the applicant and provides instructions on how to obtain case status information. The E-Notification does not grant the applicant a benefit or status. It has informational purposes only. USCIS Form G-1145 was created for the convenience of customers and it gives them confidence that the application has been received.
  3. It is important to know that E-Notifications are different from Form I-797C. Form I-797C is a receipt notice which USCIS sends within 10 days of accepting the application. It can be used by an applicant as proof that the application or petition is pending. It is not a form that applicants can fill out.

Where to Send Form G-1145?

The service of receiving an electronic notification (E-Notification) of acceptance of the application is available for forms filed at three Lockbox facilities. They are located in Lewisville, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; and Phoenix, Arizona. The duties of the Lockboxs are: cashing in on the payment, sending an E-Notification if the applicant filed USCIS Form G-1145 with the application, and forwarding the rest of the application to the service center. The E-Notification should be received by the applicant within 24 hours after the USCIS accepts the application. Domestic customers receive a text message and an e-mail; overseas customers receive an e-mail only. If the message was not delivered, it cannot be resent.

The addresses of the Lockbox facilities are the following:

  1. USCIS Dallas Lockbox Facility (USCIS, PO Box 660921, Dallas, Texas 75266).
