Under the EB-1A visa category, individuals who are considered to be at the top of their field of endeavor can self-petition for permanent residence. This visa category is applicable to areas including the sciences, health, business, international relations/affairs, socio-economic careers, and the arts among others. An application in this category requires the individual to meet a minimum of three out of ten regulatory criteria, and an overall showing of sustained national or international acclaim. This visa category carries a highly restrictive standard, and an applicant should be prepared to provide significant evidence and documentation to substantiate their standing in their field. We welcome the opportunity to review your credentials and discuss possible eligibility under this category. We feel that it is important for a potential applicant in this visa category to obtain a full and candid evaluation of their standing in the appropriate context of the EB-1A visa regulations. At Leavy, Frank & Delaney we have significant experience in working with individuals from a range of fields, and will provide a professional, and on point evaluation of your credentials so you can decide whether an Extraordinary Ability application is an appropriate visa category for you to pursue.
