IR1 after previous expired petition - London DCF

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I filed an I-130 for my husband a few years ago. It was approved and we received our LND case number, but we had to postpone our move for work reasons. By the time we were ready his CEAC case status had changed to "Expiring Soon". We didn't have a reason beyond our control (as defined by USCIS) so we re-filed and listed the previous petition as expired on the new I-130.

 

We are now at the interview stage with the new petition and we are getting our documents together.

 

I never officially withdrew the previous petition so I am planning to write a letter asking that it be cancelled and bring it along to the interview, just in case they request it.

 

Is there anything else they might need relating to the previous petition?

 

Thanks in advance.

I wouldn't bother with a letter. The petition expired and he didn't apply for a visa. It's over. You have a new case now which is allowed. 

Thanks! I wasn't worried about it at all until I read the case number letter, which says we must write to them if we wish to withdraw the petition (the first time around the letter never came and we got the case number by emailing them).

 

Then again, I suppose the petition expiring carries more weight than a letter from me!

For one thing, they are talking about the current petition that has been received. Don't confuse them because they might not understand and will cancel your current case. Don't muddy the waters.

Yeah, that's why I'm not going to mail them anything. I'll update after the interview if they ask anything about the previous petition.
