The G-1145 form or E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance is a form, clipped in front of other applications filed with USCIS, that is used to request a text message and/or email when USCIS accepts other forms. The service is only available for forms filed at facilities in Lewisville, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; and Phoenix, Arizona.
The form requires your name, last name, full middle name, email address, and your phone number.
An e-notification will not include any personal information, including the applicant’s name, because neither email nor text are secure enough to transmit personal information. Instead, the notification will list the following: “USCIS: your case was received + a receipt number.”
