A few DS-230 questions....

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone! Just wanted to say thank you in advance for all of your help! VisaJourney has been such a blessing! :thumbs:

A few questions about filling out & sending the DS-230:

1. When I applied for the I-130 I was working, now I'm not, #12 asks for present occupation, is it a big deal to put "Unemployed"?

2. #15-17 Parents information. Is that MY (Canadian) parents info? Or my husbands? (U.S. Citizen) .....basic question I know, double checking!

3. #20 I attended school down in Virginia, so I had like 4 different addresses, for each year I was there! Do I just put the Canadian addresses I've at since for 6 months?

4. #25....ok this could be confusing. I've gone shopping in the U.S., I've visited friends, I lived there while attending school, I've flown through there to go to another country, etc.

....do I just need to put when I MAINLY was there? I just put when I had my OPT (school work visa for a year) and my F-1 student visa.

According to the VJ Wiki, it says the DS-230 should contain "certified copy of name change". I haven't done that yet, I go by my married name, but documents have my maiden name. Any one else

changed their name later on down the road?

Thanks again everyone!

DS-230 is all about the beneficiary.

1. Nope. They are more concern about the USC

2. The beneficiary's parents information.

3. List ALL addresses since you are 16.

4. You need to list out ALL your visits to USA

Good luck. Remember don't sign the Part II
