Thinking of withdrawing our application

Hey all!

 

Does anyone have experience withdrawing their application/sending a letter to USCIS to explain your situation changed? We applied in October 2018, and only now in August 2020 did I get a temporary working permit. I haven't been allowed to leave the USA in over a year, and family members passed, and the pandemic & cuts to immigration here just make it feel hopeless. Obviously, my spouse is American (I am Canadian), and we have lots of family & friends on both sides of the border, so I am terrified of being banned from re entry, but also just can't wait around forever and not say goodbyes to loved ones at home.

 

It's been a really difficult year, I don't know what to do. Sorry if I am posting in the wrong section, I don't know who to talk to, my husband's family is very insensitive to the stress we've been under.

 

Thanks

Hi, are your visa IR1/CR1(that's in your profile)? What kind of temporary permit did you have? Because CR1 is authorized to work since day 1 and you can travel with no problems.

Your time line indicates you file for adjustment of status.   On what basis did you enter the US?  As a tourist? K-1 visa?

Did you file an I-131?  Was it also approved?  If so, you can take a trip to Canada to visit....then return to the US with the Advance Parole document.  I certainly would not abandon the process unless I was absolutely sure I did not want to live in the US.

Your timeline says your I-495 was approved in August of 2020.  
 

There is nothing to withdraw.  Your are a lawful permanent resident.  You are free to leave and re-enter the USA whenever you want, but generally should be spending 50 percent of your time in the USA and no more than 179 days out of the USA.  
 

If for some reason you want to relinquish your status, just stop by the CBP office on your way out of the USA.  Sorry it it didn’t work out.

Hello all! 
 

no, we applied in october 2018 with form i-130, then september 2019 I came to visit and a friend of a friend recommended to talk to an immigration organization that might be able to guide us and I ended up staying and filing for adjustment of status completely out of the blue. 
 

So we have been on that adjustment of status timeline, but I couldnt figure out hownto translate it into the VisaJourney timeline. Anyway, I was supposed to get a EAD with Advanced Parole, but my Advanced Parole was denied as it seems to be the trend... so as of august 2020, my case is “ready to be scheduled for an intervew”, but as it can take between a day and 35 months to get that, I just feel really worn out. 
 

i know immigration is hard on everybody, we just have a lot of family problems thrown in the mix and it’s really unsustainable at this point...

I was denied Advanced Parole

The way I see it, you have 2 options:

 

1.  Hold the course.  Once your Green Card is approved, you can travel outside the US.

2.  Leave the US before the approval of the Green Card.  That will automatically abandon your adjustment of status.  No further action needed.  You can start the spousal visa process later if you want.

Good luck.  I hope you find peace.

 

****I can't imagine why your advance parole would be denied.

Apparently the administration is starting to just deny AP at large and is also not letting people who have travelled out of the country on AP to come back in.

Hearsay through a network of immigration lawyers who are freaking out about it. Cause there IS no reason to deny AP, my lawyer fell on his butt when he got that notice and then talked to lawyer friends who were blindsided just the same.

And yeah, as far as hold the course go, I just don’t know if I can miss out on my family member’s, who raised me, funeral. Not to mention all the rest that has happened, especially it the wait to the interview is as random as 1 to 35 months. My work visa expires in 10 months. I am just disheartened.

I am going to make a couple guesses:

 

OP has a green card and thinks a green card isn't sufficient to re-enter the USA. Or the green card was sent and lost.

 

OP has an EAD/AP combo card and doesn't realize it.
