Scaling the Wall of Public Chargeability: New USCIS and U.S. DOS Forms and Rules

Effective February 24, 2020, both the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and the U.S. Department of State (DOS) instituted new rules and new forms pertaining to financial self-sufficiency which all immigrants seeking Lawful Resident Status are now required to complete. These forms are onerous, extremely difficult to complete and most confusing.  

Please join your colleagues to hear our featured speakers address the practical implications of the new rules, while they review how to complete the forms line-by-line.

The following forms and content will be covered:
  • USCIS Form I-944, Declaration of Self-Sufficiency ( 18 pages!)
  •  USDOS Form  DS-5540 (4 pages)
  •  Ideas regarding how to simplify/streamline the document collection process

Bring your laptops, notepads, pens and pencils and your creative lawyering skills as we review the forms and share ideas to navigate the document completion process!
