Public Charge Rule Dies

The USCIS has announced that they will no longer apply the Public Charge Rule introduced by the Trump Administration but, will revert back to the rule that was in effect prior to October of 2019. A summary of the rule that will now be applied can be found here. As a practical matter, this means that the 944 will not be required when filing I-485 applications and certain portions of the I-129 and I-539 need not to be completed. A summary of the changes can be found at the USCIS public charge web-page.
