  1. A U.S. court has blocked the Public Charge regulation from taking effect across the nation.
  2. This means that there are no changes in effect while the rule is blocked. Use of the listed public benefits, while the rule is blocked, will not impact immigration applications. Any future changes will not be retroactive.
  3. Please continue to stay informed as the lawsuits move forward.
  4. Your health is important to us. We are here as a resource. Please email us to get information.
