In some instances, a U.S. petitioner and his/her fiancé/fiancée do not need to meet in person if there is some sort of religious or cultural stipulation that prevents them from doing so. In many cultures around the world, it is not customary for a man and a woman to meet before entering into marriage.
In some instances, a U.S. petitioner and his/her fiancé/fiancée do not need to meet in person if doing so would cause the petitioner undue hardship.
This exception is very difficult to prove and very few applicants qualify under this clause. Moreover, it is hard to provide enough convincing evidence of undue hardship to USCIS.
Furthermore, financial hardships are usually not considered under this classification. Those who typically qualify have serious health problems or disabilities that physically prevent them from traveling.
Classifying someone as a fiancé/fiancée even though the U.S. petitioner and alien fiancé/fiancée are already married
Other times, a petitioner and the alien fiancé/fiancée may already be married. However, the alien fiancé (now spouse) may still be classified as a fiancé/fiancée if the marriage has not yet been consummated.
