I am married to a U.S. Citizen girl and i came on student visa.
The marriage is bonafide,and she makes good money.However, we are living with her parents and the house is in the name of her parents.
Will it be prudent if we get affidavits signed by her parents that we are living with them as lease or mortgage is not in our name?
Affidavits from her parents would be a good idea.

You could submit affidavits from the parents, but that is not the best evidence you could submit. The best thing to do is to find a statement from a joint bank account or credit card in both of your names that shows that you are living at the same address. You could also take copies of your drivers licenses or state IDs showing that you live at the same address. For more information on the type of information you can use to prove that your marriage is "bona fide" see my article below.
