What are the source of funds requirements for non-EB-5 investors in a project?

Do the other, non-EB-5 investors in regional center projects also have to prove that their funds come from a lawful source just like the EB-5 investors have to? If they aren't, could this end up affecting my I-526 petition, even if my own money is fine? How can I verify whether the other funds are lawful?

    USCIS looks at your (EB-5 investor's) individual source of funds in I-526 filing. Non-EB-5 investors are not required to prove source of funds.

    Look for business advice or investment advice from a financial professional to assist with what amounts to a non-immigration issue.

    USCIS is only concerned with the sources of funds for EB-5 applicants.

    It is not a requirement for non-EB-5 investors to prove their source of funds. I do not think it very likely that this could affect your process.

    The lawful source of funds requirement applies to investors seeking an EB-5 green card only.
