DS-230 question

Hi VJers,

I have a question about filling out a couple of items on the DS-230.

Here's the sample form posted on VJ:

http://www.visajourney.com/examples/Form-DS-230.pdf

22. List below all employment for the last ten years.

Should this include periods of unemployment too? When the beneficiary was "between jobs"?

23. List below all educational institutions attended.

Should this include "in between" periods as well? For example, if there was a 2 year break between the bachelors and masters degrees, does this need to be filled out in #23?

TIA

Hi you have a K3 Visa so I am not sure if my answer will help you but here is what I did.

Question 22 I put N/A because it is irrelevant where he worked he is not bringing that salary here.

Question 23 I put N/A because he only finished highschool and again not relevant to him getting a greencard.

I also did this because in the I-130 it is what I put down (employment) and I want to keep all answers the same all the way thru.

I hope I helped out someway, at least it's what I did..Anyone else can help out here?

I would not put that as umeployeed, just put the starting date and end date of each jobs.

Only if CO would ask wht were u doing between this time then you can tell him u were unemployeed.

Though there is no clear instruction if you can leave the gap or not in the employment history on your DS-230, it is ALWAYS better not to leave the gap.

Some officers may be rigid and others may be flexible!

For example, some people have got RFE leaving gap while filling other USCIS forms. One example is below.
