How could my credit score impact the approval rate of my I-526 application?

I have been studying and working in the U.S. for several years. Although I have a credit score, it is not as high. I want to ask if credit history is considered a factor when USICS processes my I-526 application. Could my application be rejected due to my poor credit score?

    No, your credit score would not affect your I-526 petition.

    A credit score plays no role in the consideration of the I-526 petition.

    Your credit score per se should not affect the decision on your I-526 petition. That said, the source of your funds most definitely does.

    At this time a credit score is not a consideration. God knows what happens in the future! (I think you are giving the USCIS ideas for future processing!)
