Canadian fiance with disability income history, denial?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

i'm just wondering if anyone knows any information on how a Canadian fiance marrying a USA citizen is viewed if they had been on disability income/benefits. I know they are looking to see if the fiance will become a public charge, would this be a huge setback? I plan to officially go for my career ambition and even get a back up career. so I plan to work 3-4 years to start in a career feild then go through the process. I feel like receiving goverment income and benefits for so long or even ever, will be the drawing line of getting denied. if it matters, I was put on it at seventeen in order to afford foster home rent, then had no reason to go off as I can work while on it, have money while a student, and get medical coverages.

The US government does not look at the intending immigrant's income or financial matters from their country of origin. You don't submit such documents nor do they ask for them. The ONLY thing they care about and look at is that the US citizen petitioner inside the USA makes enough money to support the household.  But just to clarify: is that what you meant or are you asking if it's a problem if the US citizen is on disability?

It is not a flat denial. That would be discrimination. 

 

I'm a mother of a disabled child. To get K2 approval we detailed exactly how his needs would be catered for, how he would be provided for and health insurance coverage. My fiance's affadavit of support was adequate to cover him by USCIS guidelines. That's what you need to focus on. I understand that it can feel even more daunting applying with a disability but USCIS deal with facts and figures so you need to be logical and methodical in your evidence. Be honest and proactive in showing how your needs will be met. For the medical part the main things they are concerned about are communicable disease, violent behavior and addictions. Try not to worry about feeling judged. If your fiance can support you financially and you can prove that then there is no reason to feel discouraged.
