Encounters International

Nataliya Fox was introduced to James Fox through the international matchmaking agency and they were married three months later. A few years after that, Nataliya claimed her husband beat her. She filed a lawsuit against Encounters International for allegedly failing to screen its male clients and neglecting to tell her about a law allowing foreign nationals to escape abusive marriages without fear of automatic deportation. The federal law specifically requires agencies to tell mail order brides about the battered spouse waiver. A federal jury in Baltimore agreed to award Nataliya a $434,000 settlement.
