The United States Government has sought to promote investment by offering the “EB-5” program as a means for foreign nationals to acquire permanent residency in the U.S. This visa covers individuals who invest $1,000,000 (or $500,000 if the area of investment is demonstrated to be a TEA, or targeted employment area) in a new commercial enterprise that employs at least 10 USCs or LPR workers on a full-time basis. Investors are initially given conditional permanent residency and at the conclusion of a two-year period, when they show that they have met the basic requirements for such an investment, they are granted a full ten-year green card.
Investors have the option of either actively managing the business through day-to-day management and policy formulation or obtaining their green cards through a passive investment in a Regional Center, which pool resources and invest funds in varied industries such as real estate, hospitality, educational services, health care, manufacturing, and retail trade. With the recent 3-year re-authorization of the Regional Center Pilot Program, investors have been given another opportunity to continue benefiting from the expertise of these centers. Where an investor chooses to actively manage a business, the underlying commercial enterprise can be set up through a broad spectrum of business entities, including a limited partnership, holding company, and wholly-owned subsidiaries of such entities. The entity must be for-profit. The investor must demonstrate that the funds have been placed at risk, that the source of funds is legitimate, and that the required 10 jobs will be created during a two-year conditional residency period granted to the investor. Kriezelman Burton and Associates has successfully represented investors in the EB-5 program based on ongoing and new investments.
Great work from Brittni Rivera, extremely professional. I highly recommend to go with them especially for U visa cases.
Both Jake, who has since relocated, and Lauren (current) are a saving grace to those who they’ve helped. Lauren, who I am working with currently, cannot be more attentive, understanding, and humble in the work and reassurance she gives you. She never makes you feel like you are any less due to your circumstance, she speaks to you more humanely and with compassion more than even a friend or family may. If you’re in the market for an attorney that cares, does her best to accommodate your circumstance and limitations while working your case, I can not recommend enough Lauren.…
Very intelligent, very much helpful, and always answer any question in your mind. Always immediate replies to my questions. Very much trustful. Thank u very much.
Simply put, I shouldn't be here. I had a really complex immigration case and all the firms that we consulted with told us that I virtually had no chance of staying here in the United States for my son. All except Kriezelman Burton.
