Investors

The Toppins Law Firm, P.C. will provide you with the following services:

First, we will provide you with the insight and understanding as to how the EB-5 Process works.

Second, if you choose a direct investment, we will guide you throughout the process and how to gather all supporting documentation to help you get approved.

Third, if you choose a Regional Center EB5 project, and once the project is selected by you, we will advocate on your behalf to ensure that your application is being processed correctly. We will also make sure that your interests (and not the Regional Center’s interests) are protected! For example, we will make sure that the Regional Center will agree to refund your investment back to you 100% in the unlikely event of an Immigration Petition denial. There are multiple others considerations that we will review on your behalf on these lines.

Finally, we will prepare and file the EB5 application on your behalf.

The timing of the process:

  1. The investor transfers his investment to an escrow account.
  2. Toppins Law Firm works with the client to assemble the supporting documents and prepare the comprehensive Immigration Petition on Form I-526.  Once the petition is approved, the investment is transferred to the Regional center. If the Petition is denied, the investment is refunded in full back to the investor. The processing of the petition by USCIS will take 8-10 months on average.
  3. Upon approval, our Firm will assist the client with the processing of the Green Card with USCIS. This process takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks.
  4. 20 months after approval, the law firm will work with the client to file for removal of the condition of the green card.
