Public Charge Rule Update October 14, 2019

Courts Enjoin the DHS from Implementing the Use of New Forms Pursuant to the Public Charge Final Rule

  • The DHS has been enjoined by U.S. District Courts for the Southern District of New York, Northern District of California, and Eastern District of Washington from implementing and using the Public Charge Final Rule, until the final resolution of the cases. The effect of the October 11, 2019 Court Rulings is that the Petitioners can continue to use the older versions of the Forms (I-129, I-485, I-539, I-864, I-864 EZ, I-944 and I-945) which are now again available on the USCIS website.

    Further, despite the recent Court Rulings the State Department’s Version of the Final Rule will still go into effect on October 15, 2019, as the Courts only enjoined the DHS from implementing its version of the Public Charge Rule and the Forms reflecting those changes.

    We will update the blog as soon as any new information is available on the Public Charge Rule.
