    Answered . The short answer is no, applying for and receiving food stamps will not affect you becoming a US citizen and/or filing for your mother. You will have to file an affidavit of support when you sponsor your mother showing that you earn sufficient income to support her. If you do not earn sufficient income at that time, you can find a qualifying co-sponsor.
