A worthwhile EB-5 immigration attorney will have the experience and insight to determine whether an applicant’s investment project is compliant with the most current EB-5 regulations and policies.
An EB-5 lawyer will help you provide evidence satisfying all of the program’s criteria including details regarding the lawful source of funds, a business plan, and job-creation requirements.
While an immigration attorney is not usually qualified to advise you on investment selection, he or she should be able to address potential immigration risks of your investment. For example, they should be able to understand the job-creation methodologies of the project to help determine if it will comply with EB-5 regulations.
A good attorney will also be of service by asking you the right questions, such as which country your spouse was born in, as your petition may in some cases take advantage of faster processing times using your spouse as the principal applicant. A lawyer may also guide you to work with an EB-5 investment specialist or tax specialist.
