What is Affidavit of Support Proposed Rule?

This proposed rule would have imposed higher qualifying and evidentiary requirements. This includes tax returns, banking information, credit reports and more. This could have placed costly burdens, estimated at $2.4 billion over the next decade, on US citizens and lawful permanent residents who sign an affidavit of support on behalf of intending immigrants. The rule was proposed on October 2nd, 2020.

Now that this proposed Affidavit of Support rule is withdrawn, it will be so much less work for people who need to sign an affidavit of support for their family members and/or other intending immigrants.
