It is advisable to consult your subscription agreement before you proceed. This will ensure you take the right steps. Also consult an attorney as soon as possible.

You can try the E-Tools section on USCIS''s Web site, or send a letter to the Immigrant Investor Program Office requesting it. I have seen responses take anywhere from a few weeks to a couple of months.

You need to send a certified mail return receipt document because USCIS will not acknowledge withdrawals.

A withdrawal is as simple as sending a letter to USCIS IPO. I usually send via email and hard copy/courier. Do note that a withdrawal is not reversible. IPO has been taking a very long time to process. In my experience, two months and up. But you can push them on this.

Did you invest the money? Is this your own project or someone else''s project? You want to make sure you can get your money back. If you invested in someone else''s project, it is up to them and the documents you signed whether you can get your money back. You can write a letter to the Immigration Service immigration investor office in Washington, DC and inform them you want to withdraw your case. Give them your file number - that can be found on your filing fee receipt or on any correspondence with them.

You should mail the original signed withdrawal request to the Investor Program Office in Washington, D.C. It will take several weeks to get the acknowledgment/confirmation of the petition withdrawal.

You can send them a letter whenever you wish. They may respond right away, or they may take any amount of time, or they may simply not respond and just send the file to storage.

Normally you just send a letter to USCIS with a copy of the receipt. You need to check with the project though as this does not necessarily mean they will refund your funds.
