Abandoning GC in US

Hello. I'm wondering if anyone has any knowledge on this topic. My husband came here on a K1 visa but we are now considering moving back to his country (Morocco) and when/if we decide to return to the US applying for DCF. Is this a possibility? Will it look bad that we abandoned our AOS petition or will it be of little concern? Anyone who has done this or has found any info I would really appreciate it. The only thing preventing our move right now is immigration issues.

AmeraMouttaki,

Context.

The answer to your question lies in the context of the situtation, and how you explain that context.

AmeraMouttaki have you got an interview date for AOS if so I would suggest that you go, my husband and I went although we have a different situation, we are getting divorced. The interviewer told us that it is best to go to the interview, you would not be abandoning your application you would withdraw it, which is a slightly better term to use. If you abandon your application you could find yourselves in a whole heap of trouble that you would not believe. You need to make up your mind on what you are going to do weather it be moving to another country or staying here. PM me if you like and I will explain more to you.

Janice

We are thinking of moving back because his mother is in ill health and because I was offered a teaching job there. I didn't know there was a formal way to withdraw the petition but that is def. something I will have to look into. We do not have an interview date yet and I'm unsure how much longer that will take (AOS has been in for 4 months now). Thanks for the replies :)

Amera, read your original post substituting 'withdraw' for 'abandon'. How's it read now?

I think it's totally do-able, but I don't know exactly how you'd do it (the withdrawing). It should not harm you re-immigrating when you can come back to the US.

You can look up I-485 processing times at uscis.gov under your District Office--it will help you estimate how long you might have to wait for an interview. Also check with other VJ users of your DO.
