Now that the new Department of Homeland Security rule on public charge inadmissibility has gone into effect, practitioners must include a new form, the I-944 “Declaration of Self-Sufficiency,” for adjustment applicants who are subject to public charge. This webinar will discuss who needs to submit the I-944 and what information and evidence is required, go over the new USCIS policy guidance on public charge to understand how adjudicators will use the I-944 as part of the public charge test, and provide practice tips and other suggestions for completing this form and collecting the supporting evidence. The new public charge rule places less emphasis on the affidavit of support and instead encourages officers to rely on other factors, covered more comprehensively in the I-944. Thus, the I-944 is now a critical piece of evidence in deciding whether an applicant for adjustment of status is inadmissible based on the public charge ground.
