USCIS releases Revised Forms associated with the Feb. 24, 2020 implementation of the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds Final Rule.
On Feb. 05, 2020, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services posted several new and revised forms to its website. These forms are associated with the Feb. 24, 2020 implementation of the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds Final Rule.
These new and revised forms will not be used in Illinois, where the Final Rule remains enjoined by a federal court. The Department of Homeland Security has requested a stay of the Illinois injunction from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit in light of the Supreme Court decision to stay the last nationwide injunction. If you are applying for adjustment of status and live in Illinois, or are a petitioning for/are an employer of an alien applying for an extension of nonimmigrant stay or change of nonimmigrant status and are located in Illinois, please review the information on our website for Illinois residents to access forms and information about how to apply in light of the injunction. Should the injunction in Illinois be lifted, USCIS will provide additional public guidance.
Once the Final Rule has been implemented on Feb. 24, 2020, USCIS will reject prior editions of forms if the postmark date is on or after Feb. 24, 2020, except in Illinois. For applications and petitions sent by commercial courier, the postmark date is the date on the courier receipt. If USCIS receives an application or petition on a prior edition of a form, USCIS will reject that form, and the applicant or petitioner will need to file a new application or petition.
With this announcement, INSZoom is working round the clock on updating USCIS forms associated with the implementation of the Inadmissibility on Public Charge Grounds Final Rule. INSZoom will be releasing the revised forms in phases. Few of the revised forms i.e., I-539, I-539A, I-485, I-485SUPA, I-485SUPJ and their related instruction forms will be available today, Feb. 06, in INSZoom by 10:30 AM PST.
INSZoom's release plan for all new and revised USCIS forms is provided in below- given table.
