Hey Everyone, 
Currently a situation has occurred and we have decided to remain in Sweden. Living in Sweden now, we had filed all of our paperwork, got approved from the NVC recently, and are waiting on a date for the interview at the embassy.  But as this may come as a shock to some, we can not move to the states. So a few questions have risen.

1.) Should a formal letter be written to the NVC and to contact the embassy to inform them of the situation?
2.)Is there a possibility of punishment such as a fine or a travel ban (my wife is not allowed into the U.S. for example)?
3.)Can we still go through with the process and move to the states years later? (guessing obviously not....)
4.)May we reapply for a green card in the future (in 10-12 years)?

This decision has rocked us to the core and I want to be a 100% on what the consequences will be. 
Thank you to all that help me. Cheers.

1) you can

2) no, normal entry conditions apply

3) i130 never expires.   When you are ready the approved petition can be requested to be reinstated
