Dale SchwartzImmigration Attorney
You can put the money in installments. But you will have to show that you have the money and/or assets when you file the I-526. We suggest to clients that they put in a hunk of the money up front, and have a business plan that shows they will be putting in more money within two years of approval of the I-526. Also, show that the additional funds will lead to the hiring of additional employees (until you have 10 or more U.S. employees). A good immigration lawyer should be able to assist you with this.
