Being an undocumented immigrant in the United States, you may be granted a temporary relief from deportation, if you file Form I-821D, and receive deferred action. Completing and filing this form is not an easy task, as this form must be mailed along with the USCIS Forms I-765 and I-765WS, to apply for a work permit along with deferred action. The only way to file these forms is by completing and mailing the paper version of these forms along with the required evidence and the appropriate fees. Remember that there is no option to e-file these forms and you must mail the forms to a USCIS lockbox facility.
After you mail these forms, you may not know whether the USCIS received your forms and whether your forms are being processed. As an undocumented immigrant in the United States with a fear of deportation, you may be very curious to know whether your request will be accepted and considered by the USCIS. You may not worry about it if you file Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance. By filing this form along with your application requesting deferred action, you will be sent a text message or an e-mail, by the USCIS once your form is accepted. If you do not file this form, you may not get a chance to know whether your form is accepted or not. In order to ease your anxiety, you may file Form G-1145, to get to know that your form is accepted.
USCIS will not accept incomplete petitions and applications that do not include the required supporting documents. If you get a confirmation message or e-mail from the USCIS, it means that your application is complete and that it is accepted by the USCIS. At times, the supporting documentation that you send may be insufficient and in such cases, USCIS will send you a notice requesting additional documents to decide on your case. USCIS offers to let you know when your request is accepted. To get access to this service, you just need to fill up Form G-1145 and attach it to your application package containing Forms I-821D, I-765 and I-765WS. It is not difficult to fill this form as it requires only your name, phone number and your e-mail address and you need not pay anything to file Form G-1145.
