What do you mean they sent a "withdrawal letter?" What did the letter say? What did you initially file and what are you hoping to achieve here? Please provide a little background, thanks!
This is not an answer, but an information request. I need this information to answer your question. Please reply, so I can answer your question. Thank you in advance.
" However, they denied that one on March 17th 2016. "
What do you mean that they denied your withdrawal letter? They cannot deny you a withdrawal of an application.
And why did you end up attempting to withdraw, and then, refile on the same person? What was the reason behind that?
Ah, okay. Oops by USCIS, then.
Once the error is understood by USCIS, then they should "undo" their action proceed to process to the I-129(f), ultimately either allowing it, denying it, or sending the RFE if they need more information. But I doubt that there would be an RFE from this mistake alone.
If it makes you feel better, USCIS makes mistakes like these all the time. They will simply process the application as though they did not deny it (by accident) and make their decision then.
I hope this helps and clarifies. Please use the SEND or REPLY button to keep chatting, or please RATE when finished. You may always ask follow ups at no charge after rating. Kindly rate my answer as one of TOP THREE FACES/STARS and then SUBMIT, as this is how experts get credit for our time. Rating my answer the bottom two faces/stars (or failing to submit the rating) does not give me credit and reflects poorly on me, even if my answer is correct. I work very hard to formulate an informative and honest answer for you; please reciprocate my good faith with a positive rating.
I am sorry, but I cannot predict what their reply will be. The decision will be based on the merits of the March 2016 application. So in other words once they caught themselves making the mistake, they should simply continue to process the application. Sorry, I cannot predict what USCIS will decide, of course.
"Give us one month" normally means give them one month to review. Either they will (1) make a decision, (2) send and RFE, or, (3) send an I-797 which is a notice that they have reinstated the application but are still considering it, i.e. "we're still working on it."
