EB-5 Services

White & Associates provides full legal support to clients interested in immigrating through the EB-5 program. The principal of White & Associates, Kenneth White, has more than twenty years of experience with the EB-5 program and is a recognized authority in the field. You will be dealing directly with Kenneth White, not a newbie lawyer or associate, firm rainmaker, consultant, interpreter, or secretary. Unlike other lawyers, Kenneth White does not represent Regional Centers and will represent only your interests.

Our services include:

  • Assessing preliminarily whether an investor and family members will qualify under the EB-5 program, including an analysis of source of funds, tracing of funds, and admissibility issues
  • Individually counseling the client to ensure that he/she understands all aspects of the EB-5 program
  • Providing comparative immigration-related information and analysis on various Regional Center projects
  • Putting client in touch with independent financial advisors who can conduct due diligence on the proposed project
  • Interacting with a Regional Center on behalf of the investor to negotiate discounts on administrative fees
  • Liaising with a Regional Center to help an investor withdraw from the project and receive the EB-5 funds back if the investor changes his mind about participating in EB-5
  • Working with the client to best prepare the case: providing guidance to the investor on the needed documentation, completing all application forms, translating all required documentation into English
  • Representing the client at both the USCIS and consulate stages of the process to ensure the promptest and most beneficial review of the I-526 petition and visa or adjustment of status application
  • Assisting the client with any problems or issues that arise during the two-year conditional period (for example, assisting with reentry permits or if problems arise upon entry to the United States)
  • Keeping the client abreast of any changes in EB-5 law that may impact the client
  • Representing the client at the I-829 condition removal stage of the process

  • Representing the client in the naturalization process if he/she wishes to become a citizen
  • Interfacing with Regional Center principals on behalf of the client, including monitoring the status of the project and ability to obtain the return of the investment
  • Facilitating the selection of and communication with other professionals to ease the transition to life in the United States, such as business attorneys, tax specialists, and real estate agents
  • Representing other family members, such as parents and grandparents in the visitor or immigrant visa processes.

In addition, a myriad of questions arise for the investor before, during, and after the application process: Can I continue to use my current visa during the processing of my petition? How long do I need to stay in the US after I receive my green card? Do I have to pay taxes? When can I apply for citizenship? How do I obtain a reentry permit? How can I bring grandmom to visit? How to immigrate my parents after I obtain a green card? How does my daughter renew her US student visa during the pendency of the EB-5 process? How can I accompany my daughter to the United States for her studies during the pendency of the EB-5 petition?

We provide consultations on this whole range of issues. You will have comprehensive legal support during and after the process.
