Hello! My name is***** and I am a licensed attorney with more than 15 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help. Also, please do NOT click on the Opt Out button because if you do, it would prevent me from communicating with you and then it could take a long time before another expert responds to you.

Sorry for the delay. I just ask that if the news is not good that you not shoot the messenger. Shooting the messenger is either leaving a negative rating (usually reserved for rude or unprofessional experts) or not leaving a positive rating at all.

What is the basis of your green card?

DONT UNDERSTAND EXACT BASIS ? That I now own a company doing business in N.J.? If it doesn't matter about the company it's ok I will just continue to wait but if it does please let me know.

So you have invested $1,000,000 or more in a company and have created 10 or more jobs for U.S. workers and thus getting your green card through EB-5? Or you are doing it through EB-1C as an intercompany owner, executive or high level manager?

EB-5 JUST WANTED TO KNOW IF OWNING A COMPANY MAKES ANY DIFFERENCE ?
Immigration Lawyer: Guillermo Senmartin, Immigration Attorney replied 4 months ago

Of course it makes a difference, but what is your current status? And how much have you invested? And how many full-time jobs have you created for U.S. workers for that company?

I do not know why you are not responding, but you are not charged per question, per response, nor per answer. So after I give you my answer, you can continue to ask me questions without additional charge until you are satisfied. I apologize if it is a site issue that you posted and the post did not go through.

What is your current status in the U.S.? E-1? E-2? L-1A?
