San Fernando Valley Field Office (Timeline)

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey people who moderate the forum lol (Sorry, I dont know a better way to start), I noticed that the San Fernando Valley field office is not listed on the site as a way to include on the timeline and to put as the office a user can choose when creating their profile. Could you guys include that as an option? It's the office that will handle my case (and probably many around here as well) on my green card process and it would be interesting to see other people who are also going to have their situation handled by it; we could talk about the interviews, discuss timeline and etc. 


I hope this kind of post is okay =) 


Thank you all in advance!
