Public Charge Updates: What is your client facing at the consulate?

  • Advocacy

In recent weeks, we have learned of an increasing number of public charge denials at consulates abroad based on implementation of new public charge guidance in the Foreign Affairs Manual (FAM). This new guidance was issued in January 2018, and diminishes the role of the affidavit of support in public charge determinations. In this webinar, CLINIC attorneys Susan Schreiber and Charles Wheeler  will review the content of the FAM guidance on public charge, how consular officers have been using the guidance in assessing inadmissibility and what steps you can take to protect your clients.
