should we revoke our k-1 application?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my fiance (Japanese national) and I got engaged May 28th 2012, and soon after applied for his k-1 visa. We received our NOA1 on June 7th and since then have been, as well as the entire family, desperately waiting for some kind of answer. As of now we have received no notice of our application's process. During that time, my fiance got a pretty decent job as a bar tender. As a result, he started thinking about revoking our i-129F and having us just get married and live in Japan for a while, then possibly apply for a spouse visa when we want to move back to the states. He thinks that if we live in Japan for a while he can save enough money for us to have a wonderful start in the states, he will be able to quickly get a job in the USA because of his experience/ language ability, and finally I will be able to live in my beloved Japan/ increase my language ability.

Questions for my beloved Visajourney buddies.

1. What do you think of our plan?

2. What are the procedures in revoking our application if do plan to?

3. Are there any consequences of revoking a fiance visa and then reapplying for the spouse visa?

4. Know the processes of marrying in Japan, and receiving a spouse visa over there?

5. Anything else?

Thank you for your help!!

sounds like a good plan. As long as you send a letter revoking the petition it won't have and negative affect on a future I-130 petition, just be prepared to explain at that time why you changed your mind. Good luck with your future in Japan!!

1. Fine plan. But why? Let it run for now and when you get the demand for the next set of papers/ fee, make your mind up then.

2. Send an email and follow up with a certified letter, but see above.

3. No, they will probably ask about it at your spousal visa interview but you have a good reason so should be no trouble.
