Can I submit an EB-1 green card application without an employer?


Just be sure that you actually qualify. The EB-1 is one of the most difficult visas to get. Not impossible, but not easy. Your best bet is to go through your qualifications with a fine tooth comb and make sure that you highlight the credentials that really matter. And, if you don’t have an employer, be sure to be as specific as possible about what you plan to do in the US.

LawTrades can help. We can put you in touch with an immigration attorney that can help you navigate the process. Plus, they could offer some insight into how your qualifications stack up. Or, if you are just looking for a more customized response to your question, you may be interested in our newest feature, LawTrades Micro. For a low fee (usually $25) you can ask an attorney a legal question and receive a customized response within 48 hours. Hope this helps. Best of luck to you!
