My wife, without my knowledge and permission, filed for her siblings for GC (12 in total). I just found out about it when I saw the letter from INS requesting more details (like birth certificate etc). I am just curious to know who can this petition be cancelled and how far along it in is in the process (keeping in mind that INS has just requested birth certificates etc).
My wife doesn't work at all so she will have to use my income as proof of income. Because we do joint tax returns, can she use our tax returns as proof of income although she has no income. At what stage she would have to provide proof of income and if she sign affidavit of support, would I be held liable for it? Is there a way to tell INS that I am against this petition because I am the sole bread earner?
I agree with my colleague. There is nothing you can do to stop your wife's petitions - those are her cases. She will have to provide proof of her ability to support her siblings once a visa number becomes available for them, which may take anywhere from 10 to 25 years depending on which country they are from.
Sorry, there is nothing YOU can do. Only the Petitioner, YOUR WIFE, can withdraw. Even if she doesn't work, she could still file a petition. If you don't want to help, it doesn't matter, she could find a joint sponsor.

As you are not the petitioner, you have nothing to do with these petitions and cannot withdraw them. Only your wife has the power to do that. As to the income requirements, that will not come into play until several years from now, when further documentation will be requested by the National Visa Center.
