  • What is the Real Cost of EB-5 Capital?

    For many who are new to EB-5, gaining a firm understanding of the projected cost of capital is often one of the biggest hurdles in deciding whether or not to pursue EB-5 financing. While there are a large number of EB-5 conferences, this particular topic is rarely discussed holistically by the EB-5 experts and educators.

  • The Dangers of Dual Representation

    Immigration attorneys who engage in dual representation in the EB-5 context may expose themselves to serious risks and potential sanctions by the SEC and their state bar. This opinion piece argues for regional centers and individual investors to obtain separate immigration counsel to navigate complicated EB-5 regulatory and immigration terrain when at all possible.

  • RFE and NOID Trends in the EB-5 World

    What goes into the filing process and and the evaluation of projects? Because USCIS does not provide a specific playbook with the latest updates, or any other way to obtain insight into its adjudications mindset, it’s important to be knowledgeable of historical as well as the most current trends as it relates to understanding RFEs and NOIDs.

  • Visa Backlog in EB-5 Program Results in Immigration Risks

  • American Entrepreneurs

    Immigrants have played a key role in starting some of America’s most iconic brands such as Google, eBay, Intel, and Procter & Gamble. Perhaps this is because there is something inherently entrepreneurial about leaving your home and starting a new life in a different country.

  • Opinion: Is China’s EB-5 Market Slowing Down?

    Nearly every regional center official I meet asks, “Is the Chinese EB-5 market slowing down? Does the visa backlog issue make potential Chinese investors hesitate to go with EB-5?” These are difficult questions to answer, since it is difficult to determine how significant the visa backlog issue will be in the long-run. But the Chinese EB-5 market is not slowing down; in my opinion, it’s merely resting.

  • Can a Minor Child File an EB-5 Petition?

    The backlog in EB-5 visa availability has created multiple issues for Chinese investors and their families. One of these issues involves the very real risk that minor children within a few years of the age of 21 whose parents file I-526 petitions may “age out” while waiting for visas to become available and therefore be unable to immigrate with their parents.
