Quick DS-230 Question

Hello everyone, I have a really quick question about the form DS-230. On Part 1 of the DS-230 question 31a it asks:

31a. Person named in 14 and 29 who will accompany you to the United States now.

Questions 14 is the USC/LPR and question 29 is the children. I wanted to know if you write down that the USC/LPR and child(ren) will be accompaning the beneficiary on the trip here if in fact they get their visa, if the USC/LPR can not make it to accompany them at the time they get it can someone else go instead? I have already sent it in but when they get their visa do they have to mention that someone else will pick them up or do they just want to know that someone will bring them in? This question has been bothering me because I know someone that petitioned for her husband and her husband wanted to come to the US alone, at that time, but they told him he can not travel unless his wife is with him.

Has that happened to anyone?

Question 31a is referring to people who will be IMMIGRATING (on a visa) to the US with them, not just simply travelling with them back to the US.

And I don't know where you read that you can't travel alone. MANY people do. I was one of them. My husband stayed at home while I crossed the border and drove across the US. Had zero problems at the border.

I know someone that petitioned for her husband and her husband wanted to come to the US alone, at that time, but they told him he can not travel unless his wife is with him.

I'll second what Saylin said, you received incorrect information. When my wife came here, she flew here by herself.

Dear all, I would greatly appreciate your help!

I need a clarification with regard to question 29 of the DS-230 (part 1) form. I have two children from my previous marriage (21 and 16) who are US citizen and live in US permanently. I live in Moscow and plan to immigrate to USA together with my current family (wife and two kids). As my US children are US citizen and do not need visa I have not included them in the initial DV lottery application. Should I include them along with my Moscow children under bullet 29 in the DS-230 form? I am tempting to include as it is required to indicate ALL Children.

Please clarify.

Question 29 isn't referring to just children who are immigrating, it's just asking for information of ALL children, whether immigrating or not.
