EB-5 Investment Visas
We assist foreign investors in utilizing this investment option for permanent residence, working with EB-5 visa applicants, EB-5 projects and regional centers to ensure that all U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requirements are satisfied. Our immigration team coordinates with our business, tax and/or securities counsel to advise whether the EB-5 investor program is a good option for a particular client, and work with clients to ensure that projects are fully documented.
I-9 Compliance and Worksite Enforcement
All employers in the U.S. are required to prepare and retain a Form I-9 employment eligibility verification form, for each employee. Increasingly, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is auditing Forms I-9 and related documents, often levying steep penalties for violations – unintentional or otherwise. It is critical that all employers are well-versed in I-9 compliance, regardless of whether they hire foreign nationals. Visit our microsite at www.i-9compliancelawyers.com for additional details.
Many companies depend on the ability to attract and retain the services of qualified foreign-national employees. We assist businesses in identifying and obtaining the necessary employment authorization for critical foreign-born employees, including skilled laborers and professionals with (post-) graduate degrees. We guide your business throughout the complex visa application and interview process.
Foley & Mansfield also handles applications for select foreign-born individuals with a business need for, or personal interest in, obtaining U.S. citizenship.
