    Answered . It all depends on why the I-485 was withdrawn/abandoned/rejected. However, any previous application can be examined while an immigration officer is adjudicating future applications. This could influence the decision if there were misrepresentations or other issues on the old applications.

The fact that the 485 was filed is also an indication of immigrant intent which makes it hard to apply for non-immigrant visas. That said every case is different and every person's reasons for withdrawing and application is different.
