What benefits are available on F1/F2 status if an I-526 has been submitted?
My wife and I are currently on F1/F2 and we submitted an I-526 petition four months ago. Since it may take longer than we expected, if she gets pregnant, can she apply for Medicaid? I know that in New York non-immigrant visa holders are allowed to apply, but how will the EB-5 application affect this?
Your EB-5 attorney will be able to advise you on the Medicaid process. However, be aware that if a pending immigrant is likely to become a public charge then the application for permanent residency may be denied.
