USCIS announced that it will implement the public charge final rule to applications and petitions postmarked or submitted electronically on or after February 24, 2020, except for in Illinois. USCIS will post updated forms, instructions, and policy manual guidance during the week of February 3, 2020. After February 24, 2020, except in Illinois, USCIS will reject prior editions of forms if the form is postmarked on or after February 24, 2020. If USCIS receives an application or petition using incorrect editions of the forms, USCIS will inform the applicant or petitioner of the need to submit a new application or petition using the correct forms.
USCIS plans to hold a public engagement for immigration attorneys, industry representatives, and other relevant groups to discuss the final rule.

On March 9, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed the pending appeal in DHS v. New York et. al. and the Seventh Circuit also dismissed the government’s appeal in Cook County, et al. v. Wolf, et al. As a result of these decisions, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois’s order vacating the 2019 public charge final rule nationwide went into effect.
Subsequently, DHS withdrew its 2019 public charge rule, and USCIS stopped applying the rule to all pending applications and petitions. The DOS public charge rule was enjoined in July 2020, and, in December 2020, DOJ withdrew its public charge rule from OIRA.
