Hi there, I was informed that people who are approved for VAWA are eligible to get financial aid at their university. I am having an issue with this though and my university doesn't seem to know what to do either. I've searched online up and down and cannot seem to find a solution or similar issue. Anyways, my school has been trying to find match in the FAFSA system and they've done the SAVE and third step verification as required but, the results keep coming back from DHS as C which means that I'm not matching in the system as an eligible non-citizen. The financial aid officer actually said the results comes back as "I-485 pending". However, my VAWA has been approved since January of 2019 and I have a pending I-485. I even just got my work permit via having a pending application. Has anyone else had this experience? Can anyone please give me any advice on what to do please? I am a semester away from graduating college and this roadblock has already had me take a whole 2 years off school already, and now I'm back and it's the same issue. I just want to graduate. Any answers will be highly appreciated.
My 2019-2020 FAFSA was flagged for verification at my university's financial aid office because I reported my spouse's income in 2017. I am the US citizen, and he did not pay US taxes in 2017, because he was not a resident alien, permanent resident, or a US citizen at the time, and did not make any income in the United States. He lived in Greece and paid taxes to the Greek government for the entire year of 2017, and was not liable to file taxes with the United States for 2017. We submitted his Greek tax form which shows his total income and taxes paid to the Greek authorities for 2017, and now they are requesting a 4506-T form from my spouse to prove he did not pay US taxes. We were married late 2018. Has anyone here gone through this? I am nervous about him signing anything stating he did not pay taxes because it doesn't quite encompass the truth, and do not want this being misconstrued by the IRS and have it come back to bite us. Any help would be much appreciated!
Hi, i'm a conditional GC holder (here through K1), about to go through ROC in January. My husband (US citizen) is in college and he got approved for FAFSA, but i don't know if we should accept it. Sometime in march this year, there was a piece of news circulating about a change in public charge laws, limiting benefits for immigrants or their USC spouses receiving federal benefits. I don't know what happened to that anymore; it seems nothing has come of it from what i could look up. Now, i know FAFSA doesn't fall under "public charge" like SNAP, public housing etc, but i'd like to make sure i don't mess up my chances at citizenship. Thank you! Iulia
