Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of any future, new questions, and I will be happy to help you as your personal Expert. ANSWER: His obligations under the Affidavit of Support end once you all become US citizens. It is not an indefinite obligation. So as far as whether he is responsible for the means tested public benefits, he is not required to repay the cost of those. However, if you decide you want to sue for child support and spousal support, the Affidavit of Support he filed, although it is no longer valid for immigration purposes, can be used as evidence in a family child and spousal support case as proof that he took on the responsibility to care for you. So when you contact a family lawyer to help you with your child support and spousal support case, make sure you let them know you had an Affidavit of Support filed on your family's behalf. If you need a copy of that and you don't have one in your personal immigration file, you can make a FOIS request with the USCIS for a copy of your entire case file. I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating. I do not get a salary here and this is the only way I am compensated for my efforts. So please do not forget to do that before you log off. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can continue to ask questions even after you have given a rating. Again, giving me a positive rating is the ONLY way I get credit for helping you. REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger. Negative ratings are reserved for Professionals who are rude or unprofessional. Giving me a negative rating does not help you get a different answer or outcome. So do not give a negative rating if you need more help, or if I misunderstood your question. Instead click REPLY so I can continue to assist you. A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it. If you have questions in the future, write “FOR JAMES" in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category. Thank you!
