public college: qualify as gov assistance?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Once the k-1 is approved and my fiance moves to the states, and we are married, would school loans/grants/etc be considered government assistance (like food stamps, etc)? or would that be more like a private loan? (The college I attend is a state funded public college -- SUNY school.) We just don't want our sponsor getting stuck paying for anything.. even school costs.

School related loans, etc. are a separate issue and will not affect your sponsor.

Check the guidelines for I-864, it might be helpful, since some of the instructions are also applicable for I-134: http://www.uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/for...iles/I-864p.pdf


I only offer advice - not even legal. Just the plain and simple kind.

rachellovesmatt,

There are a number of I-864 information pages on the USCIS web site, some of them identify what programs and types of programs are classied as means-tested benefits for the purpose of I-864. The form instructions themselves may contain some guidance on this.

I was attending a Public university when I sponsored my ex-wife on a K1.

I am not receiving VA benefits now that I am sponsoring my wife on a CR1.

Also since green card holders can apply for financial aid for college then public college cannot be considered as gov assistance.

See my thread called English in this forum.
