hi my name is ***** ***** I would be happy to help!
Selling some of the company would not affect your E2 visa status. There is not a set requirement for how much you must own. The only requirement is that the investment must be substantial and not MARGINAL. A marginal enterprise is one that will not generate more than enough income to provide a minimal living for you and your family or to make a significant economic contribution.
Does that adequately answer your question? let me know if you have any further questions.
is there any further questions or concerns i can help you with?
do you have any further questions? when you are satisfied i would greatly appreciate a positive rating! it does not cost you anything more and it is the only way i am compensated by JA! thanks for using JA and let me know if there is anything else i can help you with!
The percentage of ownership is not the determining factor. A marginal enterprise is one that will not generate more than enough income to provide a minimal living for you and your family or to make a significant economic contribution. So, if you can provide for your families and selling off portions of your company will not affect that, your company would not be considered marginal and you should be ok. do you have any further questions? let me know and i would be happy to answer.
Some of the evidence you may submit to demonstrate that your business is not marginal includes:
ultimately, your e2 visa status should not be affecting once you have already been granted the visa and continue to make money off of the company. does that make sense? let me know if you have any further questions.
