US Citizen afraid to get gov medical insurance because it may jeopardize removing conditions in 2 years...?

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Egypt


I am the US Citizen who was the sole sponsor for my husband. I was working previously and making good money. Then suddenly a few months ago, I lost my job and I have been receiving the state maximum unemployment benefits. I found out 10 days ago (2 separate tests at home one week apart) that I am pregnant. I do have a pending job lined up but the position doesn't start until December 8th, 2014 and my medical benefits wouldn't kick in for another 90 days after that.

I talked to my local DHA (California Department of Human Assistance) office and they said I should be eligible but they would include my husband on the application and he would be approved automatically because he's married to me. I am the one who is seeking medical benefits and he would NEVER use the benefits. I am just concerned because when we remove the conditions in 2 years, they will see that he was a "public charge" when in fact he NEVER had used the benefits.

Anyone have any advice on this situation?

You will not have any issues. You are getting the benefits which you are eligible for, it has nothing to do with the immigrant.

My ex husband who is a USC was in a similiar situation and it didn't affect me at all.
