Case Background and Comments: The client retained our firm after investing in a regional center.  Attorney Joe Jian Zhou reviewed the documents and found the investment money was transferred from the client’s mother’s company as a loan to the mother.  The mother has control of the company and has the right to dispose the money.  However, Attorney Joe determined that the investment without corporate proper paper and tax documents would be an issue with USCIS in determining the legitimate sources of assets.  The client’s family has resources.  After reviewing all options, Attorney Joe advised the family dispose a real estate property purchased 10 years ago in a big city in China.  The real estate value had appreciated about 10 times since the purchase of the property.   The family easily proved the initial purchase money by parents’ income from companies. The family sold the property and then transferred the money to the US and re-invested in the regional center, as parents’ gift to a child (the Client).  The regional center refunded the first round of investment, and issued fund certificate fund for the second round of investment.  Attorney Joe guided the client in documenting every step of transactions from property assessment, parents’ past income record verification, retrieving initial purchase agreement, registering the sales with local government, documenting the receipt of the money, and writing the money to US via assistance of friends to overcome the foreign currency restrictions in China.  The case was filed in October and was approved in early March without RFE.  The regional center has a designated law firm, but the Client believed that having an attorney with in depth understanding of Chinese culture, business practice and law will significantly benefit the process.  Fortunately, the regional center agreed to cooperate with our firm to file the case based on our reputation and expertise in the area.
