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.
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.
Justin Burton is an amazing lawyer that has been assisting me for 19 years! Starting with my green card process, to becoming a citizen! Then guiding my husband as well.
Justin Burton is a great lawyer who will go above and beyond through every step of the process to help you out. He is an honest and straightforward lawyer that will look out for your best interests. He really knows the law and will tell you the possibilities of the outcome depending on your case and background. I had a very complicated case (at least that I was told by previous attorneys). After 20 years of denials and six different lawyers, I was finally referred to Mr. Burton and it was the best thing that happened in my case. After…
Professional, with huge knowledge. Mr. Justin Burton is the best. Five stars is not enough!
