Today, domestic violence has become a social evil, and in a social problem by the number of victims it produces. In this context, the fact that Spain has become, for some time now, in the host country of immigrants -because it is "door of Europe"- has resulted, unfortunately, as a result, the foreign person is set as a victim of domestic violence. Thus, all public authorities are acting, producing numerous legal instruments -technically well articulated-, who were born in order to tackle, from the outset, any conduct that in the future could degenerate into action even more serious.
