Hey Everyone! I just had a quick question for you all,

My husband recently received his approval to work! And now he got a job :) We currently live at my parents house and we have a 5 month old daughter together. My mother signed the form Affidavit of Support form only to provide room and board. Also we have a joint sponsor for him. Anyway it states that we can not get any sort of government assistance for 5 years. I understand when doing this process you have to have "money" because this is not a cheap process lol. But my question is am I still able to get government assistance? Or will they say no because my husband can't receive it? I'm 19, I really don't know how any of this works, and I am asking on here because I wanted to know if any of you have been in this situation and was able to receive assistance. We are trying to get out of my house and go on our own and I was wondering for just in case purposes. Sorry if this post was all over the place.

Thanks in advance! :)

The topic of a petitioner receiving benefits was brought up recently. A search for it should turn up something.

Also, the terms of the contract between a sponsor and the government are stated on the form. A sponsor cannot limit the terms of that contract to "room and board."

Thank you. I will try to find it, also We have a Joint Sponsor, and we are not living with him. They required that we have another sponsor that we live with and that was my mother and all they wanted her to put is that she only provides room and board.
