Immigration cases in the United States are categorized by whether they are based on the prospective immigrant's family relationship or on a business purpose.  While your Agins Law Firm Chandler/Sun Lakes immigration attorneys handle family-based cases, our primary focus is on Business-based Immigration, which is administered by USCIS under a preference system.  We focus on EB-5 visas in particular.


  EB-1 (first preference) visas are reserved for persons of extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics; outstanding professors or researchers; and multinational executives and managers.


  EB-2 (second preference) visas are reserved for persons who are members of the professions holding advanced degrees or for persons with exceptional ability in the arts, sciences, or business.


  EB-3 (third preference) visas are reserved for professionals, skilled workers, and other workers.


  EB-4 (fourth preference) visas are reserved for “special immigrants,” which includes certain religious workers, employees of U.S. foreign service posts, retired employees of international organizations, alien minors who are wards of courts in the United States, and other classes of aliens.


  EB-5 (fifth preference) visas are reserved for business investors who invest $1 million or $500,000 (if the investment is made in a targeted employment area, a "TEA") in a new commercial enterprise that employs at least 10 full-time U.S. workers.  Agins Law Firm concentrate on both obtaining this type of visa for foreign investors and creating the documentation necessary (Private Placement Memoranda, Subscription Agreements, Escrow Agreements, etc.) for developers to establish either direct or regional center USCIS-approved EB-5 investment projects.  This field of work presents interesting questions of immigration, business and securities law, all of which we are able to handle.
