Immigration attorneys are helpful assets to developers and business owners when putting together documents for a specific EB-5 project. AIIA’s vetted attorneys can assist with putting together this documentation, communicating between developers, investment issuers, and USCIS, as well as assisting their clients with any other EB-5 details.
Immigration attorneys are useful for a litany of reasons, including
- Filing form I-956 for regional center designation
- Determining boundaries of their approved RC area
- Reviewing project documents and evaluating potential TEA qualification
- Filing compliance and annual documentation with USCIS
- Regional Center and Project Structuring
- Filing form I-956F for project exemplar
For investors seeking to open their own business, immigration attorneys can assist with their own immigration process, as well as the process of filing project documents with USCIS. Immigration attorneys for investors starting their own business can assist the investor on all fronts, including overseeing business securities, project offerings and filing documents, immigration procedures, and any other relevant immigration procedures.
For developers and business owners who are actively seeking EB-5 funding, an immigration attorney can assist in USCIS compliance, working with investors to properly file paperwork, as well as drawing up PPMs and other project documentation required for EB-5 capital. Immigration attorneys also correspond with a project’s securities attorneys in order to ensure that all the information presented in their documents is uniform and compliant with USCIS and SEC guidelines. Attorneys can also assist with getting your project sponsored by a regional center with a reputable track record.
When seeking out an immigration attorney, parties wishing to start their own projects should identify an attorney who:
- You are most comfortable with.
- Understands your fundraising needs in the long and short term
- Has experience working with individual EB-5 projects and filing the corresponding paperwork with USCIS
