Can I withdraw by K1 and convert it to an L1-B visa? 2 Answers as of March 17, 2011I am withdrawing my K1 although almost processed and paperwork awaited at local Embassy as we are married but wanted to remarry in the States. I now understand this would have caused problems. My company want me to relocate to NY and will put forward an L1B visa and I am now worried that I will be asked about the K1 withdrawal at the interview for the L1-B and concerned about it causing problems.

You are not going to be issued a L1 non-immigrant visa when your intent is to be an immigrant since your are married to a U.S. Citizen. You have to withdraw your K1 application and have your husband file an I-130 petition for you. While it will take awhile it is the correct way to do it and will prevent you from having problems getting your Green Card.
