Contact the site you met on; if they deal with a lot of relationships between Americans and non-Americans, they should either be able to provide documentation they aren't an international marriage broker or provide documentation that they've complied with all laws regarding international marriage brokers.

The websites t&c says they perform matchmaking services.   This is what constitutes or fits the definition of an imb.  


YMMV

"The World's No 1 Indian Matrimonial Website with over 5 million Marriages, Shaadi.com is trusted by over 35 million for Matrimony."

 

  From the companies website, they are an IMB. HOw did you get his o r her personal information ? If the broker gave it to you, you will need letter.

@jdaveh I signed for the free account on shaadi.com, me and fiancé came by our profiles, she sent me interest and later found my number from google search and we continued... etc..

in this case, how should I reply to my RFE

So, how would I respond to my RFE? they never asked for a consent form from my fiancé when she signed for the free account on the shaadi.com.

I'm now worried on how to respond back. thank you

Its not an IMBRA. They just call themselves a matrimonial matchmaking service which is a bit misleading but they are technically not a marriage broker.


Yes, often I seem like I consider myself the sheriff of VJ riding around a high horse, but I assure you I make plenty of mistakes and are grateful to those who correct me, and yes I know the TOS does not require you to actually read before replying. But VJ forums contents are generated by its users and if we as users want it to remain to be a source of credible, verifiable information, and advice -its up to us to keep it that way by taking care to read and reply carefully.

 I think the biggest thing is whether or not the website sends you personal contact information. My wife and I met on a dating site, when we disclosed this in our "explain how you met"  we said we met on _______ site., after chatting there we decided to share our personal email addresses.  Even though it was not a IMB, we still sent in a printed copy of the terms of service
