Hi Everyone,

I hope someone can enlighten me. Things did not work out with my fiancee. I sent a letter to

NVC, the USCIS Vermont Service Center and the US Embassy in Manila stating that I want to withdraw

my petition. I received a letter from NVC today stating that all further inquires should be made

to the US Embassy in Manila. My question is will the US Embassy send me a letter stating that my

petition has been officially withdrawn? Thank you...

I doubt it.... you would be best served e-mailing or calling them for confirmation


YMMV

FYI, Notarization NOT needed in withdrawing a petition or affidavit of support. Really.

Absolutely NOT required. I recommend doing so for both, nevertheless. It's easy and usually free.

Sorry pushyb. I respectfully disagree. I did it and succeeded WO notarization. You cannot say the same.

:star:

But we aren't disagreeing. I said it is not required and I'm not the least bit surprised you were successful without notarizing pretty much anything in the visa process or to withdraw a petition or affidavit of support. It is definitely NOT a requirement.

What I said was that I advise doing it anyway. The reason is that you are making an official request that can ONLY be honored from you. In any such circumstance, having a notary attest that it was indeed YOU, who signed the request, CAN help and NEVER hurts.

Yeh, nice touch but one more expense and trip in the car to do a notarization that is unnecessarily. Most of us have all too many tasks to do while living life and in addition going thru this taxing, demanding and overly stressful immigration process. Why would you recommend an unnecessary task of notarization if it is not vital and needed. Just keeping it real, pushyb. Maybe you are too far distanced from the process to make a real world recommendation,

I've always had papers notarized for free at my bank, or from a notary at my workplace.

No matter free or a charge, going out of your way for a notarization NOT NEEDED gives the petitioner ONE MORE TASK of BUSY WORK that he does not need on his plate. When will this be understood. Instead, live life and ENJOY YOURSELF.

On your deathbed, you will not be saying, "Gee, I wish I had done more busywork in my life." :wacko:

Peace.

Well, gee -- I'm at my bank for other reasons or at my workplace anyway. I don't think that I can handle ONE MORE TASK of BUSY WORK, no man. Peace.

Tx, I withdrew a K1 just fine without a notarized letter. Can you say the same? I thought not. Please dont assign folks here busy work. We are living real lives out here without a moment to spare. We dont have a nice bank like you that gives you all the freebies.

The point is, YOU DONT NEED A NOTARIZATION TO WITHDRAW A PETITION OR AFFIDAVIT OF SUPPORT.

Do you get it yet?
