On September 21, 2018 DHS signed a new proposed rule that will affect immigrants who seek a greencard based on a family petition. According to the current law, in order to be admitted, they must establish that they are not likely at any time to become a public charge. This is usually accomplished by complying with affidavit of support by petitioner or by a joint sponsor. However, the new “public charge rule,” will require officials to take into account whether an immigrant is “primarily dependent on the government for subsistence” and if so, deny the application. 

The provisional unlawful presence waiver process allows individuals, who only need a waiver of inadmissibility for unlawful presence, to apply for a waiver in the United States and before they depart for their immigrant visa interviews at a U.S. embassy or consulate abroad. It is only available to immediate relatives of US Citizen and those intended immigrant that have a qualifying relative to file unlawful presence waiver.

Given the deep economic crisis of the United States, all homes have been shaken in one or other way. Without doubt, the finances dictate our priorities and it is easy to fall in the temptation of giving up instead of confronting our problems.

However, refusing to take a timely course of action may increase your economic hardship and the emotional stability that you need to fight every day of your life. There are solutions for many of the problems the crisis brought us, we only need to analyze our situation, make a plan and act.
