Cancelling a petition -vs- letting it expre

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Colombia


I recently filed an I-129F (NOA1 April 26th) and all of the sudden my fiancee and I are having some relationship issues. It looks likely, though not certain, that we won't be marrying, at least not in the current time frame. I've read about people canceling their petitions before they are adjudicated but is there really any advantage to that over just letting it be approved and then expire? As we still have a glimmer of hope, I'd like to keep our options open as long as possible and there doesn't seem to be any downside to just letting it expire, but I wanted to check to make sure that I'm not missing something.

based from what you said that there is still a glimmer of hope, i suggest that you just let the petition be approved, in that way, just in case if the situation gets any better, you still have the paperwork and you don't have to redo it,

I love to make people happy and amazingly enough nothing can put a big satisfied smile on someones face after a good hearty meal. That's why I love to cook.
