There are hundreds of EB-5 Regional Centers approved by the USCIS, however the approval is not an endorsement that the investment itself is sound or that participation will lead to an I-526 and I-829 approval. It is wise for the investor to remember that the lawyer that he or she employs cannot give investment advice, and that it is prudent to consult with both a financial adviser as well as an experienced immigration lawyer before making any decisions as to investing in a particular EB-5 Regional Center. The following are a list of questions that are important to contemplate before trusting you money and future with an EB-5 Regional Center:
1. What is the record for I-526 approvals and I-526 denials received by the Regional Center? For denials, what is the reason or reasons for the denial?
The number of I-526 approvals and I-526 denials is a good indicator (but not the only indicator) as to whether or not a particular Regional Center is worthy of consideration. Other indicators can be discussed with experienced immigration lawyers, such as the lawyers at Hilf & Hilf, PLC.
