    Your wife staying home rather than working is not abuse, and the withdrawal of her petition for you is not abuse, either.

    Perhaps withholding your personal documents could be considered along the lines of abuse, but if that's all that's going on, you probably have an extremely weak case.
    Have a nice day

    I don't know that I completely agree that it isn't abuse. I take it the application withdrawn is for adjustment of status, which leaves him without permission to work. If she has no interest in divorcing, I would think to hamper his chances of remaining in the country is abuse. They have a child together from this marriage. Did the wife offer a reason why she doesn't wish to sponsor anymore?
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.
