Investor who has been previously denied regular $1 Million USD EB-5 case

There lived a lady with children in the Western part of USA in E-2 status who had previously been denied the regular, $1 Million USD case, primarily because she had been allegedly "ripped off" by the business owner who wanted to attract a foreign investor. Her E-2 status was nearing expiration, and she was tired of operating and also losing money on the E-2 business.

Investor Profiles & Testimonials -- What kinds of people do EB-5?

Crazy people? Rich people? No, the majority of EB-5 investors who choose to pursue the EB-5 route are people who wish for their children better opportunities in the United States of America. That's still the case. Once this stops being the case, the United States will be in deep trouble in every aspect.

Investors from diverse countries and backgrounds, each for similar but unique reasons and goals, sometimes choose to pursue EB-5 cases. And we feel honored when some of them choose our law office to consult on and/or process their EB-5 cases.

In this section, brief profiles of sample investors are described. Certain information has been changed to protect clients' privacy interests.

[Q] At what exact point during the EB-5 processing, is conditional permanent resident (CPR) status acquired?

The exact point in time at which the conditional resident status (CPR) is acquired is at the time the applicant or dependent family member enters the United States as intending immigrant with the valid immigrant visas, or at the time I-485 adjustment application is approved by the USCIS.

[Q] What are some reasons for delay in I-526 petition adjudication?

There may be a Request For Additional Evidence (RFE) issued by the USCIS examiner in charge of I-526 petition. Responding to the RFE and getting a decision may take another 2~3 months. RFE may be very simple or complex.

[Q] How long does I-526 petition take to get adjudicated by USCIS?

It varies dramatically with the available staff, number of EB-5 related cases pending and resources of CSC at any applicable time. We would say on the average it takes anywhere between 5 to 7 months from the time I-526 petition has been submitted.
