Withdrawal of second application, future application problems?

55 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I applied January 2018 for a k1, it was approved by USCIS and went through the embassy in September 2018; just as our relationship was effectively over (we (she) started to argue too much and it became to "rocky" to sustain; I had not seen her in several months) so the girl broke contact and we did nothing with the visa, I dont know what she said to the embassy person who contacted her.

 

In June 2019 I applied for another visa (different fiancee from different country that I had met around May 2018 while my earlier relationship had declined; I never actively dated both at once, I never saw my first fiancee in person after March 2018). That second application recently came back to me for request for evidence, asking again about the waiver needed since I had applied for a previous K1 within the two year period. I explained the situation as best I could.

 

"Hypothetically speaking", supposing I just found out my current fiancee is cheating on me, etc., as in just now I found out, and is no longer suitable for marriage, is it best to withdraw the application as soon as I am sure the relationship is over? I previously did not in my first fiancee because I wasn't sure if we would get back together; Also if withdrawn before approval will this second application for a K1 "count" in future applications I may make? SO I will need additional waivers? I am able to explain the reasoning of each application, but I worry I could be effectively blocked from marrying a foreign spouse for many years. The reality is the dating scene as such it is here means my future spouse will be probably an overseas citizen.

 

Also any easy link to how to withdraw? I had to send the request for evidence to some PO box in Texas, I didn't keep the document though, not imagining this would end so soon.

Pretty sure I have seen VJ members who have had at least 4 K1's.

But not three in two years,  I think that meets the definition of a chronic filer

I would definitely hold off on another K1 anytime soon.   You will still have a lot of explaining to do if you file again.  Even if you file a spousal you will still have to list the previous filings.

 

Sometimes the fiancees do not understand the time it takes to complete the process.  They have friends that just did it and it went faster or a sister, that 10 years ago, got her k1 in 2 months.

Is there a treatment, or just a time out period?

 

Albert Einstein is widely credited with saying, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results.” 

The IMB law describes the chronic filer syndrome but doesn't say what the prescribed treatment should be.  Might need to search the NEJM archives

It can raise a lot of questions at a future interview, if you do make it to that point. 

 

Are you having thoughts and doubts because you think your fiance is cheating?

Send the letter to withdraw the case to the original address that the petition was mailed to.

Make sure you attach a copy of a receipt notice or provide a case number so they can easily find it.

Some advice - K1 visas are for when you already know a person well enough to marry them, not for holding tryouts.
Every case you start that generates a case number counts.  After this one USCIS will probably put you in K1 timeout.  For your own good.

The waiver rule is two or more total filings (or) for filing a new petition within 2 years of an approved petition.  So yeah, you’ll have to file a waiver request from now on.
