Hey guys! I'm new as a blogger and just became a citizen on May 2018! I'm currently getting everything I think I need to start my mom's paperwork! I honestly am completely lost and scared. I just don't want to mess up anything! I know I have to fill out the I-130 and I-485 but I don't know in which order, idk anything else! I'm so lost! I find that the info is very spread out and I'm having a hard time finding it! If anybody have any links or can explain to me the process step by step, I would be eternally grateful!

One thing that comes up time after time is the issue of Health insurance.

It has come in the interview as part of the the Public Charge issue.

 

More common is that people file, spend the money and then either just before or just after the Parents get here suddenly they think of Health Insurance, where they get it from, how they will afford it.

 

Should be part of the initial consideration. If they have loads of money or have work lined up with benefits not so much an issue.
