    An immigration attorney can analyze EB-5 projects from an immigration perspective. The attorney may provide you with a list of regional center projects that may suit your investment criteria.

    Other than filing the forms, an EB-5 Attorney may also be able to advise as to the feasibility of certain projects and assist you with the due diligence provided that there are not conflicts.

    We guide you through the accumulation of supporting documentation for each stage. We are familiar with the statute, regulations and various implementing memoranda and cases so if a possible issue arises we can advise you accordingly to avoid problems in your submittal. We will review your complete immigration history, any criminal record, or health issues, issues of inadmissibility. We also have a good idea of the processing times for each action, and if your case is taking longer than it should for a particular action we can intercede to get it back on track and can answer questions from DOS or USCIS officers if they reach out to us.

    Given the complexities of the EB-5 program and petition process, there is a lot involved in preparing the various forms and supporting documentation prior to submission. Experienced EB-5 immigration counsel is generally critical to ensuring that the viability of your petition is properly reviewed and analyzed. Together with a business consultant and/or corporate security counsel, immigration counsel will be able to provide you with guidance as you select a project for investment.

    An experienced EB-5 Attorney is an absolute necessity for an Investor to achieve U.S. permanent residency. In addition, the EB-5 Attorney can review EB-5 projects from a past history of immigration success for investors in obtaining permanent residency, review the exit strategy from the project, determining if the investor is in a first position to seek redress from the project assets if the project fails.

    It depends on licenses and malpractice insurance that attorney has. Also, it depends on what that attorney is comfortable doing and has experience and knowledge in doing.

    An experienced EB-5 immigration attorney would discuss with the client their background, circumstances and timeline to determine if EB-5 is the right path to obtaining green card. Afterwards, he/she would help you with due diligence in picking a right vehicle for investment by discussing pros and cons of various vehicles you may consider, including but not limited to establishing a short list of investment vehicles or regional centers. Finally, but not the least, is tracking the Source of Funds carefully and completely so that your I-526 will be approved and then proceed with other filings in the most expeditious manner so that your waiting period would be minimized and your applications will be successful.

    This is a highly sophisticated program. The forms are only the tip of the ice berg. Do not navigate them without counsel.

    EB-5 is truly a team effort that requires the cooperation of a cohesive group of professionals in order to be successful. The immigration attorney generally organizes and oversees the team of professionals that will work on all the other aspects of your case, ie., business plan writer, securities attorney (if necessary), accountant, etc. and provide with you information relating to existing regional centers and projects that are seeking EB-5 investment money. He or she obviously cannot recommend any specific investment, but can provide you with options to investigate. I hope this helps.

    An Immigration Attorney''s value is in reviewing and helping you gather the necessary documents/evidence (business plan, business entity, contracts, market studies, etc.) about you and your business. The attorney will review the documents to advise you what is missing and what additional documents you may need to better your chances of I-526/I-829 Approval. The attorney will organize your package and add any necessary letters to explain any unclear, conflicting or contradicting information to improve your chances of approval. The attorney is your legal adviser on current practices, procedures, current reasons for denials in EB-5 Petition/Visa Adjudication by USCIS and the Department of State.

    Filing is much more than just entering information into a form. The supporting documentation required is extremely important. A qualified and experienced EB-5 attorney, like those at our law firm, can review all information and documentation to ensure it is compliant with current rules, regulations, and policies. We can also prepare the petitions and application packages in a manner that is easy to review and understand. We are also able to review the authentication of the source and transfer of funds, or even prepare that authentication ourselves. While no attorney can ever guarantee any result, an EB-5 attorney can prepare approvable petitions and applications for filing with USCIS.
