Decatur, GA asked in Immigration Law for Georgia

Q: I would like to petition for my mother to come to the U.S.

I am a naturalize citizen. I am on food stamp and medicaid and I am also going to college and receiving financial aid. Will any of those things be a problem for me? I know the USCIS website said the medicaid and food stamp won't but I'm not sure if the financial aid will be a problem. My husband will be my financial backer and will sign the form I-864a since I am a homemaker. I do not receive any cash assistance or section 8. I used to work but stop afting having my children.

A: As long as your husband meets the income requirements for a joint sponsor then your situation will not negatively affect your petition for your mom. Best wishes!
