Fort Wayne, IN asked in Immigration Law for Kentucky

Q: Will getting an Earned Income Tax Credit or an ACA Exemption affect my chances of being granted permanent residency?

I am filing for Removal of Conditions this year on my K-1 Visa. Last tax year, we got an EITC and ACA Exemption. Now we’re worried if those would be considered as conditions of being a public charge. Hoping to correct the situation before it’s too late.

A: First, you’ve already passed the period when a public charge determination would be made. Filing the I-751 doesn’t change that. As long as you are otherwise eligible for those things, you won’t have any problems.
