Is it possible to create an EB-5 regional center without hiring an attorney? If yes, what are the procedures? What legal entity should be contacted and how long does the process generally take?

    Please retain the appropriate professionals with experience in the EB-5 area. EB-5 is a unique and specialized legal area that requires the expertise of attorneys and other professionals.

    The best practice is to retain an experienced EB-5 immigration attorney to advise you and coordinate the team of professionals in the preparation of the required supporting documents that will comply with the immigration laws, regulations and policies. Please note this is a immigration legal program; therefore, in my opinion, a U.S. immigration attorney will be required.

    Yes, you may create your own regional center, but it is time-consuming and if you do not rely on an attorney, I would suggest you obtain books regarding "How To." Once you file, there will be probably a wait of 10 to 12 months before a decision is forthcoming.

    This is a complex process that should only be attempted with the help of experienced counsel.

    It is possible to file without an attorney, but getting an approval, or one that you can use, may be more difficult.

    Setting up a regional center is a highly complex area of law and even most attorneys would have a difficult time of it. Most regional centers and projects have a team of lawyers working on the regional center filing.

    He who represents himself has a fool for a client. This applies to EB-5 as well.
