Green Card

Improved Green Card Application Live

By December 15, 2022January 10th, 2023No Comments

It was declared that a new Green Card form will be released later this month to improve the process of adjustment of status. To elaborate, Form I-485 (Application for Adjustment of Status) will have a new public charge section as well as other questions imperative to the applicants’ status. The Biden Administration has decided that after December 23rd, 2022, the date that the new form will be officially released, it will be a necessary prerequisite for all applications.

Also, it is important to recognize that the Department of Homeland Security released a new public charge rule, which decides admissibility to the United States depending on whether applicants are likely to become a public charge risk. This new rule also contributes significant changes to Form I-485. Conclusively, all these alterations to the form are going to be determinants of whether green card applicants will be admissible in the United States or not.
