U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) scrutinizes admission applications to determine if a prospective immigrant should be denied because they are likely to rely on public assistance. Recently, USCIS has produced a new, stricter rule that puts an added burden on the applicant to present clear proof they will not become a public charge. Therefore, if you are applying for a green card, it’s more important than ever that you receive reliable advice from a knowledgeable immigration attorney. At Pollack, Pollack, Isaac & DeCicco, LLP in New York City, we have provided trustworthy counsel on immigration matters since the 1980s. We can help you present a clear declaration of self-sufficiency that helps make the strongest possible case for admission.
The new, stricter Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds final rule went into effect on February 24, 2020 with four major changes:
There are exceptions to the new rule. An immigration attorney at our firm can help assess you the facts in your situation might be evaluated under the current standards. If your case falls under the new rule, we can assemble the evidence to present your argument effectively.
One of the most important filings for someone seeking residence in the United States is Form I-944, Declaration of Self-Sufficiency. This detailed document lists assets and resources you can count on to prevent you from financial hardship as you adjust to life in the United States. You are also required to disclose debts. This document carries great weight, so it’s important to get trustworthy advice from a knowledgeable immigration attorney regarding its completion.
