  1. Short answer, no. Unless this article is inaccurate or something has changed. source; https://cliniclegal.org/resources/ground-inadmissibility-and-deportability/public-charge/public-charge-final-rule-faqs
  2. Hi all. I have been so distracted with work that I've NOT been at all caught up with the latest in the immigration side of things. So sorry for the ignorance. My US citizen wife, was a Medicaid recipient and after change of income (when I started working) she qualified for a Premium Tax Credit toward a healthcare plan. She signed up for it and use it for the month of December only. I don't have, not interested or plan to use any healthcare or any kind of program from the government. The form to include that tax credit on our taxes was mailed under my name (as I am the only income earner in our tax family) but notes my wife as the beneficiary or person covered by the health plan or using the tax credit. Overall, do you see this affecting me (the immigrant) in the long run? even though the tax credit goes to her coverage and not me.
  3. Hi, after busy months on my new job came back to see how you guys have been doing. I just stumbled upon your timeline and noticed you FINALLY! got an interview scheduled. Best of luck to both of you in the interview.
  4. Then another reason to stick to the CR1 route. You can plan multiple short trips while waiting.
  5. They generally ask for photocopies when filling applications for immigration benefits with USCIS, that's because they are going to keep those documents and will not return it to you. At the time of the interview is when they ask you to bring the originals of those photocopies just for them to have a look (some times they don't even bother). In your case since you submitted the original to them already, you can make that clarification to the officer if you're asked for it and now if you have the chance and time before the interview, try to get a certified copy and bring it to the interview, just to be on the safe side. Good luck!
  6. Most yes. It means they don't need any further background checks or investigation, until the interview. Some people call it the "real wait". From there it might take 1 to uncertain amount of months depending on the field office.
  7. "The law have changed"... nonsense. I probably would've laughed in front of her if I hear that. No, it literally says IF any of you have been arrested. As you pointed out, you both haven't so you don't have to get or provide any of that. That part specifically is for people who actually have been arrested but a long time ago and doesn't have a record at hand.
  8. If your i-94 is not expired or is not within 2 week of its expiration. Then yes, you can apply for one. But note it will not have authorization for work, it will be useful only for DL (depending on the state) or adding yourself (assuming you're the immigrant) to your partners accounts.
  9. I am glad I am not the only one noticing this. There is an obvious reason the first B1/B2 was voided in the first place. If they wanted him to keep the visa, they would had simply denied entry and allowed to come back another time.
  10. Admittedly I haven't found any specific "rule" on that. I always understood that it can be seen as a biased if is done by the applicant or close family member. However, I can be wrong on that.
  11. You can just literally ask a friend (not a close family member) that knows both Spanish and English, and make a signed certification (statement), there is a template here for that. Then they can translate accurately. And that's it. You don't need a certified translator or some company to do it for you for a price. Unless you're really into giving money away. I did that and didn't cause any issues. But yes, if your documents, any documents, are not in English then they need to be translated.
  12. While is true that is up to the applicant, given we are ones choosing whether to apply for the benefit or remain of out of status and subject to deportation. People shouldn't think that way, but rather to apply for the benefit as soon as they can, otherwise we're leaning to doing something that is against the law. Once the 90 days are up, we are (were) in unauthorized stay and subject to removal from the country. There is really no real benefit on not applying for it sooner anyway. Some of us happen to have an extra delay on applying for the benefit with a more justifiable reason (at least myself I wish we could have applied within the 90 days) but waiting years to apply for no reason just seem to me like a complete negligence and probably not even deserving of the benefit.
  13. Simply put, your AOS application/adjudication will not be affected solely because you go out of status, and thus there is not such a loop, your AOS will be processed just as normal. It could be any other reason but not that. But as I said before on this thread. File as soon as possible. Your question is totally okay. What get people, or should I say a few, riled up and maybe surprised (because of how commonly it has been asked recently) is the fact that you should and is important to assume the process (specially K1 holders) is not over until you have a residence in hand. So it's important to know ahead of time want is the next step, and act accordingly and in a timely manner. Even for people who are aware of the process, things can be delayed for any reason, but you should try the best you can to avoid delays. We already anticipated even before we applied for the K1 visa that upon my arrival we were going to be a little constrained financially and were expecting a possible delay on applying in time for AOS, it end up being true and I was out of status for almost 3 months but I was always was aware of the risk. Luckily I am a home person and don't go out much beyond yard chores for my in-laws near where I live. Even a 3min walk to the post office if I were to be asked for ID, it would had been over for me. And there is no way to get around it after that point, if there is, I can assure is not cheap, easy and/or pleasant. In the end I was not asked about it at the AOS interview and didn't cause any issues in my approval. I also didn't have the vaccinations completed on my K1 overseas exam and I had to re-do the medical exam (I was unlucky finding a doctor who just fill out the vaccination part of the i-693 Form) but I made sure I performed it and sent it with the AOS package to avoid any delays in the processing.
