DS 230 form:

I'd been trying to fill the DS230 form and it seems in so many fields u cannot complete the address or information u're trying to fill as the fields length is limited.

I've also used Acrobat professional to edit the form to adjust font size but it doesnt allow me as it's a secured and when I choose to unsecure to make changes it asks me for password.

Has anybody had issue with filling out an address or any other filed in the given space? If yes, were u able to modify the font on the PDF or how did u overcome the limitation.. I appreciate the help

DS 3032 form

Also the DS 3032 form choice of agent form..last name filed on I appoint and country field on I do not appoint has same name i.e. last name. so if u modify 1 both gets modified at same time. I only found 1 form online and it says on top right hand corner: EXPIRATION DATE: 12/31/2006. is there a newer form for choice of agent out there?

I had the same problem with the DS-230, I simply wrote in those fields with a black pen.

With the Ds 3032, why doesn't the applicant(not the petitioner), send an email like in the James Shortcut. I did and it is much faster. If you need more information, just ask.

Yeah I'm planning to use email for choice of agent but this is just for backup. It sucks DS-230 has limitations

You can also attach extra sheet with all the info that's what I am planning to do.

This is what DS-230 top Instruction say's

If there is insufficient room on the form, answer on a separate sheet using the same numbers that appear on the form. Attach any additional sheets to this form.

Let me know it this helps.
