For some of my colleagues, the company law firm is sending the AOS/AP/EAD forms without signatures.
They were asked to send an email saying they authorize the law firm to sign the document. Here's a quote from the law firm
"With the authorization on your e-mail, we will be signing all forms. In this way we can get your petition out to USCIS as soon as possible, instead of waiting for your signed documents."

Is this OK? Can USCIS accept the forms with applicants signature?

My lawyer told me to authorize him, and he has signed all forms on my behalf.
I beleive this is a common practice. I have confirmed with some other friends as well.

My lawyer is doing the same thing. I understand that lawyers will send g-28 form, however, donít we have to at least sign the g-28 form to give consent to the lawyer?

The same happened with me, I authorized my attorneys office (via e-mail) to sign the documents on my behalf. Looks like its a common practice. Even I checked with my attorney today about that and he told that's fine, for them to sign on my behalf.

You are correct. You have to sign the form G-28 to give your lawyer permission to represent you. Once this is done, the attorney can sign on your behalf. This happened to me!

In My case I didn't even sign G-28 form. I was asked to give Power Of Attorney for them to sign the documents.

Thank you. It looks like our lawers are ok with sending consent form via email as well. I wonder if USCIS will accept this ?
