K1 and Government assistance.

Hi everyone. I have 2 part question.

 

#1-I have a friend who is getting ready to file a K1 for her fiance . However, she does receive food assistance from the government due to medical reasons. She broke her back in an accident but getting better, so her situation is temporary.  If she has a cosponsor, will she be denied? I know she is working but only as tolerated.

#2-I was told that laws are changing and K1 are being denied if the US citizen has EVER received food assistance in the past. So now I am worried myself! I am a business owner now but I did receive assistance in my past. Our K1 has already been approved and is currently awaiting a case number at the NVC. What if we get all the way to the interview in Jamaica and they deny is based on that?!?! I'm very concerned now.

#1 As long as the co-sponsor makes enough it is generally fine.

 

#2 You are fine, you won't be denied because you've used food assistance in the past, it's not even a question that arises. As long as your income is high enough and you meet all of the requirements, you wont be denied on those grounds.

I think you are getting confused with a proposed change that would see green card holders denied citizenship if they ever received public assistance. It does not affect USCs.
