Understanding the International Marriage Broker Regulation Act
IMBRA requires a marriage broker to provide criminal history information about a U.S. client to a foreign client. A broker must also obtain the foreign client’s written consent before disclosing his or her personal information to the U.S. client. On the U.S. petitioner’s side, disclosure of certain violent and abuse-related criminal convictions is required and a limit is imposed of how many fiancé petitions may be filed without a waiver.
Please contact us for an initial consultation if you have worked with a marriage broker service and you would like to file a petition for your foreign national fiancé(e).
