Free EB-5 Project Evaluation What happens to EB-5 investors if the job creating entity (JCE) goes bankrupt?

If the necessary number of jobs were created by the JCE and the EB-5 investors filed their I-829 Petitions before the JCE went into bankruptcy, the EB-5 investors’ I-829 Petitions may be approved. If, however, the JCE went bankrupt before creating the necessary number of jobs, the investors will not be able to petition for unconditional residency. Any foreign national in this situation should seek the counsel of an experienced EB-5 attorney.
