8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Have you guys read about this news? I am in the US now , coming in a CR1 visa.  So I will need to apply  for a 10 year green card sooner. My husband has a Medicaid,  and as of now we are staying in an apartment that is part of the renting or housing program of the government. So scared if it's  gonna affect my application.

Yup, not becoming a public charge has been law for a very long time, latest announcement basically states .. the law will be enforced.

 

Not sure how that will affect you.

Public Charge rule/laws is for the Beneficiary.

 

I don't see it having any effect on your application.  As stated this law/rule has been around a long long time already.

I have to agree with Hank on this one. That's one of the fundamentals of getting a visa. You experience in the interview stage. Now the law will have some teeth.

Public Charge law is for the family unit. The beneficiary doesn't complete the I-134 or I-864. The petitioner is saddled with this responsibility. The petitioner is responsible for the entire family and not just the beneficiary.

So you are saying the petitioner can not get public assistance? 

 

I was always understood that the beneficiary couldn't receive it or could be liable to payback.  So you are now saying that even if the petitioner gets public assistance it could be an issue?  I find this hard to believe.

 

I-134 is a non legally binding contract so it's worthless, the I-864 on the other hand states clearly in the instruction that is all about the "Sponsored Immigrant"
