Hello All, I am contemplating applying for a green card for my mother but I am a bit confused about the new 'public charge rule'... When does that rule go into effect, is it October 15th? Do we know how it will effect green card applications for parents? My mom has a 10-year tourist visa so I am not sure if we should risk it? Should I apply before October 15th? (I don't want her getting denied for a green card and then not even being able to visit due to her tourist visa being revoked because we tried to apply for a green card?) Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks!

It affects AOS.  If she is here now, apply now. She will lose her tourist visa. She will most likely overstay awaiting a GC.  

 

Public charge consideration especially for older parents needing healthcare.

People often forget the Medical aspect.

My mom is not in USA, she is in her home country at the moment and 57 years old.  Have they been denying parent petitions? If I apply before October 15th will they not take the ‘public charge rule’ into consideration?

Have they been rejecting people because of the medical aspect or will they begging after October 15th? I guess my question is- what changes after October 15th? Thanks a lot!

You seem a bit unclear about what you, or is it she, actually wants to do? Does she want to live in the US?

 

on public charge, if she’s 57, she can still work for a good few years too.

I have seen it occasionally under current rules, I do not know what your plan is but certainly something to bear in mind and address so the Consulate can see you have it covered.

Then you do not AOS her.   You file the I-130 and then in about a year the I-864.  The new form does not affect you, on Oct 15, as she will be processed at the consulate.    The CO has still take into consideration the totality of the circumstances to come to a conclusion about public charge. Look into the costs of her living in the US prior to the interview.
