Does anyone have any knowledge or experience of how to go about notifying USCIS of this?

The application fee has been paid & biometrics already scheduled but I wish to withdraw my application. I know that the fee is non-refundable, but what I want to know is how do I notify USCIS? My application is being processed in Texas.

Thank you.

Can you tell them at your biometrics appointment? Or just not go and they'll drop your case?

I'm not sure if you have to do anything. You will receive the fingerprint's appointment letter. The letter will give up to a certain date that you have to show up. It says that if you don't have your fingerprints taken by that date, your application will be considered abandoned.

I just had mine taken yesterday.

why this far into the process now and your withdrawing if i may ask not being rude...

HappyNathy-I agree with leahandlucas, as to why you are this far in the process now and withdrawing your application? Huh? Surely a person doesn't waste $675 for no good reason..lol..And with the long wait that you have gone through for the I-751, doesn't that motivate you complete the rest of the journey for US citizenship? Lol..That motivated me...as I was tired of dealing with the USCIS anymore, especially after waiting 10 months for the I-751 approval, and only getting 5 months use out of my green card. Nevertheless, I was glad that I ended my journey with US Citizenship.....

However, I understand that you have your reasons for not wanting US Citizenship, which is ok too. I mean, why get into something when you don't want to. Citizenship is a big responsibility and is for the rest of your life (lol..unless you find some way of renouncing that later on, which is more troublesome to do), so think and choose carefully about this. After all, citizenship is optional, and it is your choice as to whether or not you pursue such.

There is no right or wrong answer to this. If you decide to be a US Citizen, fine. If you don't, fine. Either way is ok.

But the important thing is that you know what you are getting yourself into when you become a US Citizen.

Whatever path you decide, I hope that it is the best one for you....:)

As for notifying the USCIS....I think the best way to notify them is by writing. There should be an address on the bottom of your fingerprints/biometrics notice, to your local office, where you can contact them. Tell them sooner or later, before it causes more problems later on down the road.

Hope this helps. Good luck, whatever you decide....

I am thinking of doing the same. I sent my application in. How does that affects me if I decide to renew my Green Card in the future?

Maybe you have to notify USCIS in writing or make INFOPASS perhaps and explain that you do not want to apply for Citizenship anymore?

You just have to renew your GC every 10 years before the Card expires. My aunt who lives in Seattle has been a green Card holder for 18 years now and has no desire to apply for Citizenship. Obey all laws and pay your taxes and you'll be fine.

Good luck.

Update:

My interview was yesterday at the Baltimore USCIS office. It was the easiest interview I ever had.

The IO was very pleasant, she only asked for my present marriage license and my case was approved within 10 minutes. All the time spent to go through my N-400 and on my civic was about 10 Minutes.

I was sworn in later at 3pm yesterday and I am now a US citizen. Thanks for all your support

Out of curiosity, why did you want to withdraw the paperwork?
