Withdrawal of K1 petition

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have decided that we may hold off on getting married right now so that he can finish his degree in his his home country. Do I need to state the reason for the withdrawal? Also, what happens to the current petition? Is it just deleted or what happens to it? We will probably file either CR1 or do direct consular filing in a year or two. How long does it take to be officially withdrawn? We just received the NAO1 a few weeks a go, so the petition is still in the processing phase. TIA!

If you cancel before approval NOA2 a letter will suffice.

If you cancel after NOA2 a letter will also suffice and you decide to do a second K1 you will need an imbra waiver multiple approved k1 petitions.

Either way if it comes up be honest about why you cancelled and you should be fine.

If you do a petition for someone else make sure you have bonefide evidence.

Hi, yes you can. Just send a letter to the USCIS - no reasons needed. You could write something like, 'I, -name-, hereby notify the USCIS that I no longer want to proceed with the I-129F petition, case number, beneficiary name etc'

Good luck!

No reason needed. The USC petitioner just sends a letter stating they wish to have the I-129F petition withdrawn. Include a copy of the NOA1 receipt notice with all your case info on it.


Withdrawing Your Application or Petition

Write a letter and mail it to the USCIS service center or office processing your case to withdraw your application or petition.

Do not send your request to a Lockbox facility as your case is no longer with the Lockbox.
