I met my girlfriend through a matrimonial site. She is an Iranian who lives in the USA (She is not a citizen but just applied for her green card). I am an IndXXXXX XXXXXving in India. We have never met in person but I did meet her sister and nephew who are residing in India at the moment. After her elder sisters approval of me, we have come to the conclusion that we are ready to get married but before that we need to spend at least a couple of months together. She wants me to come to the USA and stay with her. I too want to go to the USA and be with her as she is more accustomed to the standard of living in the USA. Saying that I also want to get married to her in the USA and reside with her to make things easier for her at the moment. What visa would be appropriate for me to apply for at the moment? If I do go on a travel visa to be with her and decide on getting married on a travel visa, what are my chances of staying back? Because if we do get married on a travel visa then there is no point in me returning back as she is not comfortable on coming to India so soon because she does not want to quit her job in the USA or the lifestyle. Nor would I want to depart from her. Please help. Thanks.
