Worst mistake ever?

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I (u.s. citizen) had to stop working due to pregnancy & applied for temp. food stamps. Long story short, I was told that I needed to provide all of my husbands (out of status f1, filing soon) info. (id, social sec. card). Now he is on my benefits case. I received food stamps for one month but just requested to have him removed. I'm freaking out, I'm scared, Did I really mess up? Should I prepare packing our bags to return to his home country? Could his AOS be denied because of this? Please give me some advice. Thanks in advance.

If he received means-tested benefits then it's possible he may be subject to public charge considerations.

although federal guidelines were used in determining eligibility,

award comes from the state (not the feds)

so it's not a federal benefit.

However, you screwed up, your intake counselor being poorly trained, not knowing he/she was not to count your recent spouse in anything. Can't fix it quickly, but everyone has a boss, right? You can talk to that human's boss's boss, get the designation and status fixed . No, he won't be deported about it, as you are going to write up a letter of attestation that carefully explains the blunder by the intake counselor.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Oh ok, I saw that on the I485 it asks about this on part 3,C,2 it asks have you ever received and help government or state etc. I have been so worried. I'm definitely going to call them when the office's open up within the next hour. And if they remove him from my case, which they should be able to and perhaps Cantu erase any record of this the letter would go in the packet explaining why he was even "assisted" in the first place?

someone has to take accountability for this.

since it's in your best interest that the accountability not fall on your shoulders or your husband's shoulders, I stand by all that I wrote here.

And Darnell would you happen to know of any online website that helps you file the AOS that's safe and perhaps less expensive than a lawyer?

Yes, the guides section helped tremendously. I guess I am a little worried that we will miss something or do something incorrectly and be denied. It seems as if it his so much & I just want everything to be perfect. I know people do it themselves all the time but I'm still so concerned about doing it ourselves.

Thank you, I called about the food stamps and explained everything, they took full responsibility & had him removed with reason why on file and also are mailing me documentation to admit their mistake and to clear him if any wrong doing. Woa
