MAKE sure you keep all evidences & record of all those phone/chating records. As much records you have about your talking/meeting, its more helful in your interview. Try to gather pictures, letters & phone bills showing you called & talked that much long.

we do have all the records except the initial 2 months chatting record . because at that time we didn't know that we have to keep all these records .

will that be a problem ?

Hi there,

congratulations :)

just be aware that being introduced by relatives can raise questions from the officer side about 'whether her/your family just wants her/you to immigrate in the usa' (not sure if you are petitioner). Just take it as precaution and have your answers ready. Good luck !

Is this typical of Indian culture? If it is, then it is good to follow the traditional and cultural ways of the beneficiary's country. But even if it weren't good and typical, you could not change how things happened and you should definitely not lie about how things happened. I think it is good to have the parents approval since India seems to be a more traditional and conservative country in which parents' approval is customary and important (not so much the independent minded attitude which is the norm in other countries).

Best wishes! (F)

In your culture, where parental approval of a marriage is the norm, it is a good thing. The embassy in New Delhi takes a dim view of marriages that don't have apparent parental approval and question its validity.

Have letters from the parents attesting to the validity of the relationship and their approval of same ready when the alien goes to the embassy. They go a long way towards proving this all important point.
