K1 Interview Set - but need to withdraw/cancel

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

The I-129F has been approved and the package set to the US Embassy in my ex-fiance's country. Interview has been set up (a little over a month from now).

My question is: what procedures should I take to cancel/withdraw this K1 Visa?

Thanks in advance for your help!

You cannot cancel or withdraw a K-1 visa as no visa has been issued...

You need to contact the embassy and withddraw your I-129F petition.... in addition if you have not already then do not give you (ex) fiance(e) the required documents for the interview... (ie.. I-134, et al..) without the financial support documents chances are the visa interview will fail...

I would contact the USCIS and ask how to withdraw the petition. Then I would email the consulate. I am sure others here will have more advice, but that would be a start.

If you have already given your fiance the I-134, etc, see if you can call the consulate and speak to someone in the immigrant visa unit to withdraw the petition. If it can't be done over the phone, perhaps they can guide on what to do. Good luck.

Thanks everyone -- yes that's what I meant the I-129F. He does not have any required documents from me, so he would not be successful with the interview.

I'll be sending a letter to USCIS (maybe after calling them -- but that's not always feasible for me) and I'll be emailing the embassy too.

Thanks for your input.

the best ideas is to call the embassy in your fiance's country and talk to one of the immigration officers and he will never get a visa,and call USCIS,and never provide any documents he asks you to send him,but i would call the consulate in his country before they issue a visa,and i am sorry for it did not work out for you :(

To cancel your petition you need to send a notarized letter to the US Embassy in your ex-fiancé’s country informing them that you wish to cancel the petition. They will in turn send it to USCIS for review. After it is returned to USCIS you can track the progress of the cancelation on the USCIS web site.

Best of luck

It takes more than a phone call to cancel a petition with USCIS.

I had to cancel one just a few months ago. This is what I learned in my research, it needs to be in writing to the service center you filed the K1 to. On the envelope, put Attn: Withdrawal of Petition. Of course also contact the US embassy in your ex-fiancee's country.

Sorry it didn't work out.
