EB-1 Extraordinary Ability Self-Sponsorship

Bypass the slow, expensive and restrictive burdens of the typical employment-based green card process by sponsoring yourself for a green card as an EB-1 Alien of Extraordinary Ability. You don’t need actual employment or even a job offer.

Advantages of EB-1 Extraordinary Ability Self-Sponsorship

1. Speed. Get your green card in months, not years.

2. Savings. Avoid expensive advertising fees and submissions to many different agencies.

3. Freedom. You are free of obligations to a particular employer.

If you are in the U.S., you may also apply for work permits and international travel documents for you, your spouse and your children to use while the petition is pending.

Qualifications for EB-1 Extraordinary Ability Self-Sponsorship

You must have earned national or international acclaim for outstanding achievements in art, science, education, business or athletics. Although winning a Nobel Prize is sufficient, that is certainly not required. Call us to discuss whether you may qualify.

What We Do For You

First, we help you determine the best way to pursue your green card. Next, we identify the best evidence to gather or produce to present your case in the most persuasive way possible. Then, we work closely with you and your recommenders to make clear and convincing letters of support, starting with proven models and not stopping until they are as good as they can be. We assemble and prepare all of the paperwork. Our submission packages are comprehensive, typically approximately 500 pages. Most important, drawing on our decades of education and experience, we write a detailed advocacy brief that shows the deciding immigration officer exactly why you satisfy the strict standards.

In short, we make it as easy as we can for you to submit the petition and for the immigration officer to say, “Yes.” From the moment you retain us until you have your green card, we are with you every step, with unlimited meetings, phone calls and e-mails.
