Free Webinar to Explore Four Underutilized Alternate Paths to U.S. Permanent Residency

Free WebinarToppins & Williams Attorneys at Law, P.C., is offering a free webinar, “Beyond EB5: Alternatives to U.S. Permanent Residency,” on Tuesday, Feb. 4, 2020, from 11 a.m. to noon EST.  The webinar will discuss four useful alternatives to EB5, which used to be the most effective path to U.S. permanent residency. At the end of the webinar, viewers will receive codes for discounted law firm services. Register for the webinar.

For more than 20 years, the EB5 Alien Entrepreneur visa program served as the quickest, most effective path to U.S. permanent residency, even though the investment requirements were steep—anywhere from $500,000 to $1 million, depending on investment location. However, on Nov. 21, 2019, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) implemented a final rule, changing the EB5 program to require minimum capital investments of $900,000 and $1.8 million. These increases have made it more difficult for investors to participate in the EB5 program. More changes to the EB5 may be on the way as well.

In this webinar, we will explore four alternatives to EB5. Many of these paths to immigration don’t require an investment, though they may rely on employment relationships (sponsored employment or self-employment), an individual’s own merit, or perceived ability to expand a business.

Webinar attendees will get codes for the following discounts at the end of the session:
1. 1.10% of the flat fee of the service if the firm is engaged and the flat fee is paid by Feb. 29.
2. Reduced consultation fee (from $250 to $150).

Wilka Toppins, Esq., shareholder at Toppins & Williams, P.C., and Brandy Williams, Esq., shareholder at Toppins & Williams, P.C., will present the webinar. Ms. Toppins possesses 30 years of legal experience as a corporate, business, and immigration attorney, representing both local and international individuals and companies. Ms. Williams has nine years of legal experience in employment and investment immigration with an emphasis on representing employers in the EB2/EB3 (PERM) program as well as NIW, Extraordinary Ability, L1, and EB1C visa programs.
