    When you sign the Affidavit of Support, you accept legal responsibility for financially supporting the sponsored immigrant until she...

    * becomes U.S. citizen or
    * can be credited with 40 quarters of work or
    * leaves the United States permanently or
    * dies

    And divorce does not nullify the sponsorship agreement.

    If the immigrant receives any "means-tested public benefits," you are responsible for repaying the cost of those benefits to the agency that provided them. If you do not repay the debt, the agency can sue you in court to get the money owed.

    Currently, Federal means-tested public benefits include Food Stamps, Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), and the State Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP). States and local jurisdictions may also designate certain of their programs as means-tested public benefits.
