How can I abandon my residence without affecting my parents?

I received my green card through my father after he applied for an EB-5 investor visa. We have a pending I-829 (to remove conditions on our green cards). My father is the principal applicant, and my mother and I are the derivatives. I (the derivative) want to abandon my green card and pending I-829. How can I do this without affecting my father and mother”s pending I-829 application? I want to leave the country, but my mother and father still want to stay in conditional residence.

You may file a form I-407, Abandonment of Lawful Permanent Resident Status in a U.S embassy abroad. Abandonment of status by a derivative should not have an adverse effect on the principal applicant or any other derivatives.

You can file a request with either the USCIS or the U.S. consulate to abandon your conditional permanent residency and withdraw from the I-829 process. This action on your part will not effect your parents or other members of the family who still intend to pursue the I-829 process.

Execute form I-407 at a U.S. consulate or embassy abroad. This should have no effect on your father''s pending I-829.

Because you are a derivative, you should not affect the principal or other derivatives, but an attorney should review your immigration status and goals (and those of your family) to make a fully informed recommendation.
