Let's take a look at the first five steps in the EB-5 application process.
Step 1: Consult with the Law Offices of Vaughan de Kirby
The EB-5 program is complex, and requires an attorney with expertise and experience. My firm is committed to helping clients make well-informed decisions that help them reach their goals. During this free consultation, we will explore whether the EB-5 visa is the best choice for you and your family.
Step 2: Fill Out Qualifying Questionnaire
Once you have decided that you would like to pursue an investment in the U.S. and an EB-5 visa, our firm will work with you to fill out the investor questionnaire for the regional center you have chosen. This questionnaire determines that you are a qualified investor.
Step 3: Retain the Services of the Law Offices of Vaughan de Kirby
The retainer agreement authorizes us, on your behalf, to ask the regional center for comprehensive financial materials for evaluation by you and your financial advisor. There is no fee at this point-my firm does not charge a fee until you make your investment in the regional center.
Step 4: Sign a Nondisclosure Agreement
This document protects your privacy and the privacy of the regional center. The regional center agrees not to disclose any of your personal information, and you agree not to share any private financial information about the regional center to anyone other than immediate family and your financial adviser.
Step 5: Evaluate the Documents Provided by the Regional Center with Your Financial Advisor
As your attorneys, we cannot act as your financial advisors. An EB-5 investment in a regional center is significant, and you should be sure it is the right decision. If you and your advisor should decide that you would like to make an investment in the U.S., my firm will be ready to help you obtain your EB-5 Green Card. Should you decide the investment is not right for you, my firm will charge NO FEE.
If you decide to continue, you can begin making your investment and complete the final steps in the EB-5 application process.
