Does anyone know what "BFA" means???

27 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine who recently got her greencard just got a letter from USCIS saying they want to meet with her and her husband next week. They did not say anything about what they want, only under reason for appointment "BFA". Does anyone have a clue what this means? She is worried sick! :(

Thank you so much!

fraud = scary


"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
