Ivener & Fullmer, LLP -- business immigration law firm -- leads foreign investors through the 12 to 18 months it takes to be federally approved before being allowed to invest in an American business. Approval comes when an investor is awarded an EB5Green Card.

"There is a complex application process where the investor's identity, financial sources, and intentions are analyzed by experts," said Mark Ivener, well-known immigration attorney and founder of Ivener & Fullmer.

A wide variety of foreign investors have shown interest in the EB-5 program including business owners, doctors, and people who want to own an American business so their children can attend school here.
