Customer Question

Me and my fiance are starting our k1 visa. We met online through Brazil Cupid. Is that considered a marriage broker? I think not but am concerned what US immigration thinks.

Which specific site are you referring to as "Cupid"? And why do you think that it is not a marriage broker? What evidence will you be able to use to prove that it is not?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Brazil Cupid. The reason i think it is not is because they do not give out members contact information. It is up to each member to divulge their contact information or not. But i am not a lawyer lol

Ok. Here is a link to their Terms of Service:

According to that, they are not, but the burden of proof is upon you, or your lawyer if you hire one, to prove it to USCIS. If you do it yourself, you will have to point out how Brazil Cupid does not meet the elements contained in IMBRA. If you hire an attorney, they would do it for you. You can look for one at Here is a link to IMBRA:
