(News and views from IBLF staff and attorneys)
Question Detail: What is the purpose of an EB-5 investor signing the Form W-8BEN? Will the regional center file this form with the IRS?
Question Detail: I know that the business plan is an important component when submitting the I-526 application. However, I have not been able to figure out exactly what the business plan is supposed to include. What are the essential parts of an EB-5 business plan? Will a business plan for a regional center project be different than one for a direct investment project?
Question Detail: I will be submitting my I-829 application and would like to work with a different attorney than the one who filed my I-526 and I-485. Is it possible to change attorneys at this late stage in the immigration process? Will I need to provide USCIS with different documentation? How will my EB-5 application be affected if I change immigration attorneys?
INFORMATIONAL SESSIONS - Starting about Jan 9th, IBLF will recommence its meetings about the process and the validity of the Nov 20 Executive Order. If you miss the informational sessions, you can still get information by calling us at our main number, email us with your interest, or attend a future session which we are scheduling from time to time.
My parents invested through the EB-5 program and were interviewed for their conditional green card in late January 2014. They are communist bankers who do not hold any political position, but USCIS still needed to perform an additional background check. Will their current communist status complicate their I-526 approval? In addition, about 95% of the other investors in the same project have already received their conditional green card. Because we are still waiting for I-526 approval, and are now last in the queue, will our chances of receiving I-829 approval be reduced?
