Cancelling K-1 Petition

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I just send in my I-129F Petition on 7/24/07. I have only received confirmation that it has arrived at the immigration center from the USPS. Instead of getting married so soon, we are thinking that she should apply for a student visa to study ESL and then see if she likes the US and living with me. My question is, at this early stage, how do I cancel the K-1 Petition and will it affect her ability to get a student visa when she applies for one?

Hello All,

It may, they could see that a K-1 was in process, and suspect that the other non-immigrant visa may be miss-used with the intent to immigrate. K-1 is a Non-immigrant visa with immigrant intent.

You shouldnt be abusing the K1 visa. If you or your 'fiance' are not sure about wanting to get married, dont bother even filing.

The K1 visa is for people that truly want to get married and live together here in USA. It's not for a "trial" period. I guess it's good that you've figured that out now.

I say all this because there are hundreds/thousands of couples waiting for approvals and its a shame that some people misuse the K1 visa and even slow the process down for others.

I agree with you lucho and it is a fair comment. It is not fair to other applicants. We agreed that if she did not like the US after five years, we would relocate to her home country. That is the only uncertainty we have at the moment. Thank you both for the quick replies.

I am not sure if it would really have an effect on the other visa you want to apply for if you cancel the K-1 process an have a good explanation for your decision (I can totally see your point, just, couldn't you think of that earlier?).

It might just not look good on your part for the reasons, YuandDan already stated: It might look like you are still trying to have her immigrate and were just looking for a faster route to go.
