Approval of EB-5 Petition for Foreign Investor
Our firm had the pleasure of representing a foreign investor who invested a substantial amount of money in a transportation business in the United States. Because we were able to show that the business was located in targeted employment area, the investor only had to show $500,000 of an investment to qualify for permanent residence. Unfortunately, because the business was established more than a decade ago, the investor did not have readily available records to prove that the initial investment funds were obtained from a lawful source. We worked diligently with the investor to review all available records and to prepare affidavits detailing the source of the funds. We also provided a thorough analysis of the EB-5 regulations addressing the "lawful source of funds" requirement. In the end, we were able to successfully show that our investor met the requirement even with limited evidence available.

Recent Case Successes
After two years of our continued oversight and follow up, the U.S. Embassy in Korea granted our client's employment-based petition.
Our client entered the U.S. on a fraudulent passport, and returned it to the supplier without keeping a copy of it. We had to prove that he was inspected and admitted into the U.S., not an easy feat when the only piece of evidence proving so is gone.
Our client was a scientist who had to leave the U.S. because he was not selected in the H-1B lottery. He explored the idea of an O-1A with his potential employer, and we went ahead with the case.
