Resources for Domestic Violence (English)

Finding your special someone is an exciting process, one that can change your life forever. The majority of our couples build strong families and live happy and healthy lives. However, there is always a possibility that you may experience some type of domestic violence. Even if you were to marry someone from your own country, there is always a chance of spousal abuse. We recommend that if you are serious about marrying anyone, no matter where he lives, you should know as much about him as possible, including his prior marital history, and criminal history, in any, especially any problems relating to spousal abuse. The choice is yours to make, but the more information you have the better chance you have of making the right choice.

A Foreign Affair will be glad to assist you in obtaining martial and criminal information about any of our clients you are seriously interested in. Simply E-mail us at or contact any of our foreign offices with your request.
