Withdrawal of GC application

14 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

I am very sorry that I have no idea where to put this post so I figured I would put it here and if it should be somewhere else then someone will advise and move it.

 

I am wondering if anyone can advise on how I officially withdraw my GC application? 

I see on a website that it says I have to give them the office where I filed. I have no idea where this is... Does it go to the same place where I originally sent it or to the place where it should be being processed? Phoenix for example

 

Also it asks for a copy of my receipt notice which is impossible to give them because they didn't send one and when I tried to obtain on, I got passed pillar to post with no resolution. I received a letter back that simply stated they were arranging my interview and never actually answered my question. 

Anyone know where i should be saying I filed and what to do if I cannot provide them with the forms they are requesting because they didn't send me in the first place.

 

Thanks 

 

Zoe

The petitioner can withdraw the petition by writing a letter to USCIS and explaining that you wish to withdraw the petition. Include a copy of the application you sent to them, or at a minimum, your and your ex-fiance's names and dates of birth

There is no petition in this question. The UK person applied for AOS. He no longer wants a greencard. He writes the letter to withdraw his application. The USC petitioner did not apply for a greencard so has nothing to withdraw.

 

ZoeUK--I am sorry to hear it has come to this. From past posts,  I know your struggles here with the application  and health issues have been quite the ordeal. Best of luck on a better future.

Wuozopo, I would just like to thank you for your kind wishes. Its nice to see that you have been reading my posts and remembering what I have been through. I also hope you are well :) 

 

Also, This was my thought, that it would be me that needs to withdraw and not my wife as I don't really remember it being anything about her on the form. Only me and my wife for the I-864.

Well, the original petitioner (the USC) can withdraw the I-864 to kill the I-485 still.

But since it's mutual, the intending immigrant can just withdraw their application (I-485).

Yes, my wife. Still married and still intend on being together just not in the united states. 

My wife did not apply for a GC, I did so I believe I would be the person needing to withdraw. 

 

 

 

Actually, she was the one who applied for a green card, you just provided the affidavit of support. She's the one who signed the i-485

Just to clarify because there seems to be a lot of confusion on who is the petitioner and who was the beneficiary of the K1 to the GC. 

 

My name is Zoe and I am from the UK. My wife is the USC and we are in a same sex relationship which is probably why people are getting a little confused when I say Wife because the automatic thought in peoples heads in the partner to the wife is usually a man, the Husband. So just to throw a little spanner in the works we are Mrs and Mrs ;) 

 

Me, Zoe, filed the AOS. I signed it. My wife is the USC and signed the I-864. I will write the letter to withdraw it my I-485, I just don't know where to put that it was filed because I thought everyone sent it to the same place (that Chicago lockbox or wherever it was) Its, been 16 months since I filed and I have been through a lot since filing anything including the K1 so I can't remember. 

When I contacted them to tell them they hadn't sent me a receipt for the I-485 they told me they didn't keep those records longer than 6 months and I would need to contact the office where I filed, which was where I thought I was asking.

I get so confused because of the terminology they use, Is the place I filed the same place as where It should be being processed? 

 

When it comes to sending them a copy of my I-797c for my I-485 application then they have no chance of getting that from me because they didn't send me one and no matter how hard I tried to get one, they wouldn't give me one. so its tough luck really.

 

This process has been a pain in the a** start to now for me but I still want to withdraw my application in the correct way, even if they haven't done everything by the book for me and my wife.
