Q: For marriage green card/adjustment status, do I need I-944? I entered as F1visa and married wit’s US Citizen.
A: Yes just two weeks ago on September 11, 2020 the federal court lifted the injunction that was in place because of Covid and therefore all people that are filing their applications after February 24, 2020 must file the 944 form.
A: USCIS announced that following the September 11, 2020, Second Circuit decision, it will apply the public charge final rule and related guidance in the USCIS Policy Manual to all applications and petitions postmarked (or submitted electronically) on or after February 24, 2020. Hence you will need to file the FORM I-944 with the FORM I-485.
