Focus: Change, Change, Change. USCIS Issues 38 Pages of EB-5 Policy Changes

Tuesday, June 8 is the deadline for the Thursday, June 10 phone session of "Investor Options For Experts" with David Morris, John Barrett, Michael Gibson, Melissa Krinzman, Jason Oleet, Frederick R. Troncone and others. The curriculum is as follows:

On December 11, 2009, the USCIS issued a sweeping 23 page memorandum that "rescinds in its entirety" many prior policies that defined the EB-5 Program and establishes new guidance to all CSC personnel involved in the adjudication of any EB-5 visa petition or Regional Center application. That same week, USCIS issued a 15 page "Questions and Answers" document resulting from an EB-5 stakeholders meeting. The panelists will discuss these very important changes :

  • What are the new EB-5 policies and adjudication standards
  • What policy problems has the Service fixed and what is now broken
  • How a "material change" could result in an investor losing both residency and an "age out" child under CSPA
  • How a TEA today may not be a TEA tomorrow (failing to preserve $500,000 investment qualification)
  • USCIS burdens on Investor not Regional Center/Project
  • Using "Exemplar" I-526 Petition To Stop USCIS Second Guessing
Tuesday, June 8 is the deadline to sign up. For more info, including speaker bios, detailed curriculum, and registration information, please see: Online: Fax form: Don't delay, sign up today.
