How Can Assist You
First, we provide you with the insight and understanding as to how the EB-5 Process works. If you choose a direct investment, we will guide you throughout the process and how to gather all supporting documentation to help you get approved.
If you choose a Regional Center EB5 project, and once the project is selected by you, we will advocate on your behalf to ensure that your application is being processed correctly. We will also make sure that your interests (and not the Regional Center’s interests) are protected!
For example, we will make sure that the Regional Center will agree to refund your investment back to you 100% in the unlikely event of an Immigration Petition denial. There are multiple others considerations that our Houston immigration law attorneys will review on your behalf on these lines.
Finally, we will prepare and file the EB5 application on your behalf.
The Timing of the Process
The entire EB5 process follows a set schedule.
- The investor transfers his investment to an escrow account.
- works with the client to assemble the supporting documents
and prepare the comprehensive Immigration Petition on Form I-526.
- Once the petition is approved, the investment is transferred to the Regional
center. If the Petition is denied, the investment is refunded in full
back to the investor. The processing of the petition by USCIS will take
8-10 months on average.
- Upon approval, our firm will assist the client with the processing of the
Green Card with USCIS. This process takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
- 20 months after approval, a Houston immigration lawyer will work with
the client to file for removal of the condition of the green card.
