Dears,

Please I've a few questions regarding filling PUBLIC CHARGE QUESTIONNAIRE form ds 5540 For CR1 Visa Interview.

I'm the applicant.

My wife and babies  ( 6 months new babies) are Americans and receive medicaid and housing and they live in the US.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the form, In part 2, 4A. Will you be covered by health insurance in the United States within 30 days of your entry into the United States?

My question :- Is it recommended to get health insurance before walking to the interview or what?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the form, In Part 3, Q. asking about the household size, Was he or she on active duty, other than training, in the U.S. Armed Forces or Ready Reserve while receiving a public benefit? 

My question :- What Should be the answer Yes Or NO.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

In the form, In part 4, in Ques. no. 12. If you or your family requested or received a public benefit, were you or your family members exempt from public charge during that period?

My question :- What Should be the answer Yes Or NO.

Thanks a lot.

Do you have a Joint Sponsor?

 

How do you intend being Insured prior to the interview?

Part 2 4a   your wife has to provide you with the information / proof that she has checked insurance quotes and can afford to pay for yours if you come to the US/ since your wife is receiving housing and medicaid which makes her a public charge , she needs to find a way to buy insurance for u

If it was just Medi -Cal  alone she was receiving for new mothers,  not an issue but still it is for low income families and immigraion needs to  know you will not be a public charge so  how is she showing you ,  she can afford this?   get this info from her 

 

Part 3   Is she in military?   surely you know this as you need to know her life,  job,  her family,  all that to pass the interview

 

the last "do you or your family (includes the USC wife) get public benefits?   you need to find out if she is exempt from these

If your wife and children receive Medicaid and Housing, then it is a 99% chance she is receiving other public benefits.  If she is receiving TANF or SNAP, then you will have to list these benefits, and you will have to prove why you will not be a public charge since your spouse and children are receiving public benefits.  


Phase I - IV - Completed the Immigration Journey

It's probably more useful to ask your wife these questions. She knows what kind of benefits she is receiving and has received. 

 

She will need to get some quotes for health insurance for you, and provide evidence that you can afford it.
