    Answered . well, yes there is a benefit. if simply a withdrawal then there is no adverse finding or denial just a withdrawal from you, so if you re-apply again in the future then you have no denial of the previous case. The question about lying to a government official is only applicable if you actually did lie. therefore, if you have a questionable case better to withdraw the case instead of opening a pendora's box.

    Answered . Immigration officers have access to your file, so they could pull out that N400. A withdrawal simply means you chose not to pursue the application. That is much better than a denial which could have negative findings that could impact your future applications.
