• Marriage Certificate

I'm married to a US Citizen. We couldn't register our marriage before my spouse left India.
When we filed my spouse visa for US with USCIS, we have submitted a letter of declaration from the registrar of marriages stating that marriage was not registered and USCIS approved the petition. However in order for the US consulate in India to process the interview the document should be legal in India. Is the declaration letter from registrar legal in India in leu of a marriage certificate? Please let me know..

Legally speaking, declaration by registrar cannot take the place of marriage registration certificate, albeit US consulate may in its discretion accept it.
