You can put that you met through a family member or not. They (USCIS and USEM) don't care nor will know that your aunt, uncle and yourself are not talking to each other now. USCIS and USEM only require that it is a genuine relationship, you both intent to marry upon entering the USA in 90 days, have met in the past two years prior to filing the petition (I-129f)and the petitioner can financially support the beneficiary (I-134).

Don't over-think your response for this question, just keep it simple. As Teddy pointed out, your relationship to your aunt (or to whomever introduced you for that matter) is completely irrelevant.

Just make sure you establish:

1) How you knew of each others existence

2) When you came face to face with each other (if it didn't happen at the same time of #1)

When answering this question on the form, you need to keep in mind that they don't want a whole love story, they want facts. Keep it short and sweet... Example: "We were introduced by a family member of mine, in May 2011. I traveled to visit her and her family in June 2011 and I proposed on that visit"

@Princess Rena,

Confirming and emphasizing portion of "Wally G!"'s response to you: one of the pre-requisites to submitting I-129f is that you and your fiance have met each other in person, within the two years immediately preceding filing the I-129f petition [with extremely rare exceptions]. Is that the case? Have you met each other personally/in person within this time frame? [bTW, Wally G! is correct on the other points also.] Additonal posters' advice to keep response about meeting in person short and simple is wise. Most persons seem to be able to utilize the space provided on I-129F form to describe the in person meeting(s). Please let us know if we can help you more about this or with anything during you and your fiance's own Visa Journey. Wishing you and your fiance the best!!! --RK and Inday

We met in person last may 2011. Thank you so much for the comment. err.. I asked too much but again I have another question, first,about "letter of intent to marry", is it necessary that we have same date on the letter( like i put i put april 30, 2012 (i send it through TNT) and he will put todays date ? Second, is it ok to issue personal check or it need to be certify? Thank you so much!

Don't over-think your response for this question, just keep it simple. As Teddy pointed out, your relationship to your aunt (or to whomever introduced you for that matter) is completely irrelevant.

@Princess Rena--In response to your questions in most recent post:

#1: No, it is not necessary to have exactly the same date on letter of intent. You and your fiance should just put on the date you actually wrote your letter.

#2: Re: personal or certified check. I am going to supply more info than you asked for which may be of help. Rather than rewriting all the info, please refer to the following link:

http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.5af9bb95919f35e66f614176543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=3850a99ba78af110VgnVCM1000004718190aRCRD&vgnextchannel=fe529c7755cb9010VgnVCM10000045f3d6a1RCRD

which is the USCIS instructions for paying immigration fees. Most VJ members seem to do money order or personal check (for tracking purposes; knowing when check is cashed.) Be sure to follow the USCIS instructions exactly. I made a mistake on writing out personal check and had the whole I-129F package sent back; had to re-write check & resend I-129F again!!!

Happy to help with this and any other questions you might have.
