Immigration Issues/Stop Join-sponsor to an immigrant

Question
Hi,

I am a join-sponsor for a permanent immigrant. This person refuse to have a contact with me, and does not want me to know where she's working. She planned to go back to her country for a long vacation. I do not want to financially sponsor her any more because I think this person is a burden to me and my family. Is there a way that I can stop sponsoring her? Please advice! Thank you. Toni

Answer
You mention that you are the joint-sponsor, meaning sponsor along with the main sponsor (maybe the Petitioner). There are no hard and fast rules but you may inform USCIS in writing that you intend to withdraw your support.  Keep all records for future reference.

Best wishes,
