Food Stamps/ Assistance

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone,


My CR-1 spouse and our newborn dual citizenship son are now living in the country with me as we've recently arrived from Ecuador. We're currently at my family's house (mom was a joint sponsor). I'm in the process of looking for work and getting stabilized after being in Ecuador for almost a year and a half. With most of my savings spent on the visa process and living in Ecuador, I'm in a low cash flow situation. With our newborn son and myself being US citizens, I'm wondering if it's possible for me to apply for food stamps/assistance while I'm building financial stability. I know that me being a Sponsor and my mother being a Joint Sponsor for my CR1 spouse, she would not be able to apply for any government-sponsored benefits, however, I'm curious if I can on my behalf and on behalf of our newborn son? I just want to make sure I don't create any alerts or alarms with my CR1 spouses visa and that this is a permissible thing to do for my household.
