The results provided by the Public Charge Risk Estimator are merely an estimate generated by a software tool, not an individual assessment by an immigration attorney or expert. These results are based on information you provide. Boundless is not responsible for the accuracy of the responses you provide and does not guarantee any particular outcome or decision on the part of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) or any other U.S. government agency or official. When applying the public charge rule and other relevant standards, immigration officers who evaluate green card applications will generally exercise a certain amount of professional discretion and judgment. There is no prior history of how the new “public charge rule” — effective Oct. 15, 2019 — will be applied.
