I sent a handwritten letter to NVC by email (it was scanned in) and they sent me an email saying it is under “administrative processing”. I called them to find out what that meant and the representative said that they will be sending the case back to USCIS. Why are they sending it back to USCIS? How does it take for my petition to get withdrawn?
If you wish to withdraw a petition that has been approved, you can send a letter to USCIS and inform them that you wish to withdraw your petition and include the case number or a copy of the Approval Notice.
The above answer constitutes general information and is not intended as individual legal advice. The answer does not establish an attorney-client relationship. It is recommended that you retain an immigration attorney to assist you in this matter.
Because they found "additional information" they think USCIS did not have when they approved the petition. they will be asking - the DOS will - that USCIS revoke the approval.
