It's the same problem. You will still have immigrant intent even if the I-130 is withdrawn and the B-2 requires non-immigrant intent. So you will withdraw the I-130 for nothing. Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget that positive rating. Thank you!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
