I also think all this thing is difficult to understand... But from what I've been reading here in VJ so far, I understood that these IMB refers to those dating websites... So, people that have met over these international dating websites would have their criminal backgrounds investigated in a more accurate way! I think that once they find out the petitioner have any sort of criminal background, they will communicate the beneficiary...

Well, can anyone complete or correct my conclusions? hehe

An IMB would be any service online or otherwise that assists in matching USCs to foreign nationals. But the law will also affect those who did not meet through an IMB.

Does this law apply at all to couples who did NOT meet through an IMB?

Answer: Yes. There are provisions in this law which do NOT apply ONLY to IMBs. They apply to ANY K Visa petititoner, even those who did NOT meet their fiancee or spouse through an IMB, but just for instance through friends or family.

Examples are: 1) The "Petition Provisions" of IMBRA. These say: the I-129F Petition must include documents and information about petitioner's past criminal convictions, inlcuding domestic violence convictions must be submitted under signed certification. New I-129F Petitions will likely be distributed by USCIS in the near future for this purpose. Section 832(a)(1).

2) Numerical limitation on number of approved K Visa petitions. These say: A Petitioner cannot be approved for a third K Visa petition unless Petitioner waits two years from date of filing of last approved petition or secures a DHS-approved waiver. Section 832(a)(2). Another part is: The placing if information in the new K Visa database and the notices sent out to the lady beneficiary from that database. Section 832(a)(4).

3) Consular Interview requirements and Adjustment of Status Interview requirements. They say that the Consular Officer at Embassy Interview or Immigration Officer at Green Card interview with lady Beneficiary must review and answer questions about Petitioner's domestic violence and other criminal record in her primary language. Section 833(B).

4) The Domestic Violence Phamplet/Brochure. Section 833(a). These must be distributed and explained to the lady beneficiary regardless of how the couple met, either through an IMB or outside of an IMB.

5) More intensive security checks. Given that Petitioners will be asked for more information and documents with their I-129F Petition, DHS and State Department will likely intensify security and background checks on Petitioners.
