    What do you mean by "fulfilling friendship/relationship"?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    That is what I am confused about. I don't know the word. For example if a person is in trouble and his friend helps him so he fulfilled his friendship with him.

    'Fulfil' (BE spelling) does not collocate with 'friendship'.

    Consider using "as/be a good/true friend/son/person" and rephrase your sentences.

    Re: If you have befriended someone than you need to fulfill you friendship with them.

    We usually "fulfil a promise". When you're friends with someone, you're not obliged to do anything and you don't necessarily promise then anything, so there's nothing to fulfil.

    1) If you have befriended someone than you need to be a good friend of theirs.

    2) If you have relatives than you need to be a good relative of theirs.

    3) If you have helped your friend in difficult times then it means you are a true friend to them.

    4) I will pay visit to my mom and will be a good son.

    5) I will take care of my mom and will be a good son.

    3) If you have helped your friend in difficult times, then it means you are a true friend. to them.

    4) I will pay a visit to my mom and will be a good son. (That sounds like you will be a good son only during your visit.)

    5) I will take care of my mom and will be a good son.
    See above.
