The new USA law on dating agency(s)
On January 05, 2006, President Bush signed into law the "International Marriage Broker Regulation Act of 2005 (IMBRA)".
Based on a very few unfortunate cases around the country of a foreign lady spouse who was a victim of domestic abuse, Congress passed a law to, understandably, offer some protection for these immigrant women.
The law was passed as part of the passage of the Violence Against Women Act Reauthorization of 2005.
The law requires all U.S. gentlemen who petition for a fiancee or spousal visa to provide more personal background information to Immigration Service and the State Department than ever before.
It creates more restrictions in the process such as the number of fiancee or spousal petitions one can file, and how quickly a gentleman can file some visa petitions.
The law also requires a U.S. gentleman who wishes to meet his future fiancee or spouse through an "International Marriage Broker" to first submit extensive personal background information to the broker agency. The broker must then share that information with a future lady fiancee or spouse who must consent before the couple can start a communication and relationship.

When this law applies
This law only applies when you meet the lady's face to face in our offices. At this meeting YOU and the LADY can exchange information, if you do not wish to continue your relationship, we will request the return of your information and the lady(s) return your information on you. WE WILL HOLD ALL INFORMATION IN COMPLETE CONFIDENTIALITY. Before meeting a lady(s) you do not need to give out your personal information. It is not wise to think any man would want to give out his personal information before meeting ANY lady. This disclosure of your personal information is a basis for identity theft or worse. We strongly discourage any information to be supplied to anyone without first meeting them. We will allow the lady to look at your information prior the meeting. If you wish to continue the relationship, you then can exchange paperwork.
Both USA members and non-USA members are asking questions about how it will affect the way we conduct business at our company.
This information is for your worries or concerns, so you understand our position in regard to this new USA law
1st, UaDreams.com WILL comply with this USA law in its entirety (no exceptions).
This is a valid law which has been voted by the majority of votes in Congress and signed by the President of the United States.
We comply with all applicable and relevant laws of all countries where we have members. We are a fully-licensed Introduction Agent in Ukraine, and we will NEVER intentionally violate any law of any country.
2nd, our compliance with the USA law will NOT affect our members from any other country.
The site will modify its operation (prior to meeting the lady's face to face) in regard to our USA members ONLY. Members from other countries than USA will not be affected.
3rd, UaDreams.com will make our compliance with the law as smooth as possible, both for our USA members and the ladies.
The most debated issue of this law was the personal disclosure of a man, which was supposed to be signed by the lady before any personal contact between a man and a woman could occur. Personal contact information is full name, address, telephone numbers, e mail addresses, etc. This does not require any compliance until you meet , FACE to FACE, in our local offices.
4th, If you as a USA member meet someone through an agency that doesn't comply with this new law, it can make your visa application INVALID OR IMPOSSIBLE to obtain.
According to the law, EVERY foreign fiance/fiancee will have to answer during the visa interview the question whether or not he/she met their USA boyfriend/girlfriend via a dating agency, and if yes, then they will have to disclose what dating agency it was and whether the agency was complying with the new law. The emigration inspectors may require copies of the signed forms.
Those questions will be MANDATORY for all fiancee visa and spouse visa interviews for an entry visa to the USA.
If the dating agency was not complying with the new law, your visa petition may be considered invalid as the rights of the foreign fiance/fiancee were violated, This may lead to additional legal problems for the USA citizen.
If you meet a lady, through a dating agency that was not complying with the new law, you may NOT be able to bring her to the USA.
You and uadreams.com will need to complete the 4 (FOUR) following items, prior to meeting any of our lady's, It will be valid for use on one lady or many lady's for 30 days from when it is signed
