Cancel an approved i-129f that is already at the embassy in Bogota

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



My i129 case was recently approved. However I also found out my fiancé was not being honest with me about many things. So I sent a letter to the NVC asking to withdraw the petition. However I received an email saying that they had sent my case to the embassy in Bogota and the day letter I received a letter in the mail asking for more information. At this point I called them asking what I should do and they said that I now had to deal with the embassy in Colombia since they no longer had my case on hand. I then called the embassy in Bogota to ask what they need and where to send it. The 3 times I tried to call to get a direct answer or another number they directed me to an email which they said is the only way I could contact the immigrant visa department of the embassy. I sent an email about 2 weeks ago and another today and have not received any response as to how I should proceed. Between the infidelity and the many other lies I am afraid that I do not know the person I thought I did. I worry she may have only used me for the paperwork and am wondering: Is it possible for her to go through in the process without my involvement? If I don't cancel or withdraw will it hurt her chances for future immigration cases (if she meets someone new or her mother puts in a petition for her)? do I even need to cancel it since we never began the actual k-1 visa petition as I understand we only had the i129 approved aren't they different. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated especially if you know what I need to withdraw the case. I would really like to cancel it because I don't want to do her any harm or have her be able to do me any.

Put Urgent and case number in the subject line. 


Put it short and sweet in the email that you are no longer a couple and you are withdrawing the petition. 


If they need additional papers from you still, do not send them.

Contact the embassy/consulate requesting to withdraw the I-129F.

Also contact USCIS making the same request.


Just as a note, once a withdrawal request is submitted, there is no going back without starting the whole process over.
