Your role as an attorney, DOJ-accredited representative, or other legal services provider is critical to ensure immigrants and their families understand changes to public charge policy. Many immigrants are not subject to public charge inadmissibility yet may be fearful to access public benefits or pursue immigration options because of public charge. Others may be subject to public charge and need to understand when and how it applies. As their legal representative, you will be the one they look to for the answers.

This toolkit will bring legal practitioners up-to-speed on the current state of public charge and immigration law and includes tools for screening and analyzing public charge issues in your cases.
