Hello, I am under F2 visa and I plan to apply for EB1 visa in a few months.
I have a company in Brazil for 25 years and I have open a C-Corp in Florida and the company is starting to making some money.
I have people running the company as reps getting the customers, talking to them, making proposals, closing deals and doing the services.
However, I still write emails sometimes that relates to work, or sometimes I go to business meetings with people I know in dinners, parties, etc. Even when I am in Brazil I keep writing email for the same reason, etc.
Is that illegal?
Since I am planning to apply to EB1 Visa, I don't want to have any problems and not sure if I can get profits from my company.
Passive management is the opposite of active management in which a fund's manager(s) attempt to beat the market with various investing strategies and buying/selling decisions of a portfolio's securities. Passive management is also referred to as "passive strategy," "passive investing" or " index investing."
People from all over the world have passive investments in the United States.
It depends on your extent of the tasks you performed in the US company. The substance of your meetings and emails could be dispositive. I would not recommend that you file for EB-1 without an attorney. I am seeing a lot of individuals who have good businesses, but who got denied because the government applied the law incorrectly. You need an experienced advocate on your side, someone who has several years of experience with EB-1.
