    Pls I'm DV-2021 selectee and I submitted my DS 260 on July 28 2020. I want to send an unlock request to make few revisions on my information and that of my wife. Should I send two separate email? Also the revisions are about the job I indicated to do. I added "private business" and my fear is that it may invite difficult questions or probe. What's is your advice?
