Cancelling approved I-129F Petition as the Beneficiary

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I had previously posted about my situation--after a six year relationship my fiance broke up with me via email a couple of months after we got engaged and started the K1 process. He also decided to block all communication from me (effectively making it impossible for me to discuss any of the matters relating to the break up with him, including getting back all the things I had left at his place in contemplation of moving and the visa application), and I haven't heard anything from him for a month and a half. He has anxiety, and it may not excuse, but I think does explain, his behaviour.

I found out that he hadn't withdrawn the K1 application when I received my packet stating the petition had been approved from the consulate in Montreal. I have tried contacting him about this and admit I have let some time pass since I received the packet because this whole situation is incredibly hard for me (I do love him and wish he would go get some help and we could get back on track). . . But I can't keep delaying dealing with this, and I see no prospect of being able to get him to do a petition withdrawal letter or a joint one any time in the immediate future.

Is it correct that my course of action should be to mail the consulate explaining that we no longer want to be married at this time and to cancel the application? Do I need to send any proof of my identity as beneficiary (notarization, ID, etc)? Does anyone know of any sample letters for this kind of situation?

In the event things did get back on track again, are there negative repercussions to us having canceled a previous K1 application? Is there language that I can use in requesting the Petition be cancelled that is more favourable in the event we did want to try getting married in future? I just don't want negative repercussions if the relationship got back on track or for travel to the U.S. again at some point in future.

Thanks.

You cannot cancel the petition because it isn't yours. Only the petitioner can withdraw the petition because it's their petition.

Simply do not proceed with the visa and that's all you can do from your end.

Shoot. I had previously been given the impression that I could inform that we would not be proceeding. Is there a potential negative impact to me if he just lets the process languish until the application gets stale dated? I could try to let him know through family that he really needs to deal with this. I don't want to find myself in a negative position because he's totally checked out.

I doubt it will affect you in any way.
