Years ago, my mother file I-130 for my father. Her petition was approved. My parents had an argument which led my mother to cancel it before it went further. Years later, I filed for my father. I was approved. There’s a question on the Online Immigrant VISA and Alien Registration Application (DS-260) that I am not sure is applicable, “have you ever been refused a U.S. Visa, been refused admission to the United States, or withdrawn your application for admission at the port of entry? My father was not refused a visa or admission to the U.S. Would that be yes for withdrawn because my mother cancelled it?! Please help me. Thank you!
