I presume that you meant Part 12 Question 23.

That question should be answer Yes. Then attach explanation sheet of what happened just like you did in your Green Card application.

Goodluck with your application.

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.
