Hello,

Sadly my relationship has ended as i decided i didn't want to move to the USA and leave everything behind.

It hasn't ended well, we are not on speaking terms.

I am wondering how i can (the beneficiary) cancel the I-129F, we have not been approved yet?

Thank you for helping me during this sad time

Hi,

I'm sorry to hear that. As a beneficiary you can't officially cancel the process since the I-129F is handed by the petitioner.

The best you can do is not respond to any requests from USCIS or the embassy if it gets that far. You can respond to them if you'd like with a letter stating that you no longer have a relationship with your fiance and do not wish to continue with the K-1 process. If you do meet someone in the future and they need to file for you, they will have to disclose that another person petitioned for you in the past. Other than that there isn't much you can do. Eventually the application should run it's course and your ex will receive the denial notice.

Hopefully things will change and you two can talk it out. Moving to the USA doesn't mean it's permanent forever. You can always move back to Australia with your then-husband or wife once you receive your permanent green card or citizenship. There's some stipulations depending on how long you can be out of the country with the green card, but the separation from your country might only be short-term.

Good luck

Hi,

I think the Beneficiary can cancel it also.

I canceled a K1 last year after NOA2, and when I got a letter back from the Embassy in Manila it was a form letter and it said Visa was withdrawn by Petitioner and or Beneficiary, and they had circled the Petitioner with a pen. I was Petitioner

For the OP

I would send a letter to USCIS, DOS, NVC and US embassy in your country and wait for feedback, it took me about 3 months to get withdrawl letter.

This is a very interesting information. Most of times I have read on VJ that beneficiaries couldn't cancel the petition and the embassy told the beneficiary to ask the petitioner have cancelled the petition. This is a very first time I read that beneficiary also can cancel it as well.

There's nothing you can do except not go to the interview, etc.

Thank you for helping me during this sad time

Petitioner only, can cancel the I-129F Petition.

The VISA application is filed by the Beneficiary, not the petitioner. The VISA application _IS NOT_ the I-129F petition. ViSA Application, DS-160, once filed, can be cancelled by the Beneficiary. VISA Application not filed yet, no basis for it (IE - an approved I-129F petition)

If the OP was the petitioner, your advice would be meaningful. Sorry.

For the OP, somehow the petitioner must cancel the I-129F. There is a process for that, usually the petitioner sends in a written request to the address listed in I-797 formletter, the receipt letter, asking for withdrawal. Nothing occurs fast after submittal, either, as the request has to catch up with the casefile.

This is a very interesting information. Most of times I have read on VJ that beneficiaries couldn't cancel the petition and the embassy told the beneficiary to ask the petitioner have cancelled the petition. This is a very first time I read that beneficiary also can cancel it as well.

Is also wrong info. Sorry.

no need to cancel on your part....do nothing....a petition is just that a petition. as long as you don't apply for the visa when and if the petition gets approved then theres nothing for you to cancel.

the beneficiary don't apply for i-129f (petition), the petitioner submits the petition..once the petition is approved then the beneficiary can apply for k-1 visa for travel to the US...now, if someone else submits a i-129f petition for her/him down the road it might get questioned and prolong the process because of the prior i-129f..but i don't think it automatically disqualifies her/him.

it DOES disqualify them if there is a previous I-129-F petition that was not canceled by that first petitioner. I am well aware of who files an I-129-F, I only meant to state that she cannot be petitioned again without the first petition being canceled.

It will eventually expire and trashed if no actions taken won't it?

Thank you for the advice...

IF the Petitioner doesn't withdraw the I-129F what happens? As i have a strong feeling he won't.

Will i still be able to travel to the USA on future holidays without problems?

Thank you

You will still be able to visit as a tourist using the VWP, it won't affect that.
