[Q] I invested $1 MM in direct, individual EB-5 case, and now I think my I-829 will be denied soon. What do I do?


[Q] Several years ago, I invested $1 MM in direct, individual EB-5 case. I filed I-829 and I believe it will be denied for fialure to create 10 full-time jobs because I only created 3 or 4 jobs. What can I do at this point?

Our advice is that you immediately sit down with your current EB-5 attorney or with another EB-5 attorney and figure out what are your options. Do not wait until you get a I-829 denial to do this because it may be too late by then: You will be deemed to be "out of status" upon your receiving a I-829 denial notice from USCIS, and this will prohibit you from applying for adjustment or change of status in the United States.
