Immigration cases can take a long time. The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) often takes two years or longer just to decide an I-526 petition, the first step in the EB-5 immigrant investor process.

Miller Mayer recently received approval of an I-526 expedite request for an immigrant investor from Hong Kong. USCIS approved the I-526 petition less than two months after we submitted the expedite request. With no visa backlog currently for EB-5 investors from Hong Kong, this client can now immediately pursue a green card.

USCIS lists several criteria for when an expedite request may be considered. Miller Mayer’s decades of immigration experience and our understanding of USCIS adjudication trends have helped us craft winning arguments. We have received several expedite request approvals in recent months for EB-5 investors. If you are interested in learning more about expedite requests and whether one may be appropriate for your pending case, please schedule an immigration consultation with a Miller Mayer attorney.
