I speak from recent experience, you do not want to be the Guinea pig on some new process, form or questions that come about for AOS process. I would make a serious effort to have it delivered in time to avoid it.

Hello, I see some rules are changing on October 14th, 2019 for the I-864.

Is it worth it filing before that date? Or the new "public charge" rules will apply regardless of the filing date?


I have all documents ready and will get married in a couple days, now I am trying to figure out if I should rush it a little but or if it doesn't matter.



My understanding is it applies to green cards issued post oct 15th.. making filing date null an void... unless I’m mistaken 

CR1/IR1 - USC Spousal Visa

https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2019/08/14/2019-17142/inadmissibility-on-public-charge-grounds "This final rule is effective at 12:00 a.m. Eastern Time on October 15, 2019. DHS will apply this rule only to applications and petitions postmarked (or, if applicable, submitted electronically) on or after the effective date. Applications and petitions already pending with USCIS on the effective date of the rule (i.e., were postmarked before the effective date of the rule and were accepted by USCIS) will not be subject to the rule."
