my own company will file a petition for an O-1A visa.

Ok and what is your question in your situation?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I wanted to ask I have majority ownership but my company members can officially fire me as the CEO as an employer of the company can I still file for it.

Yes, if your company has a U.S. partner or employees who are authorized to work then it is possible that your company can file a petition on your behalf.

Good luck to you and I hope this answer has helped you.

Please kindly click "Finish by RATING" and choose a rating from the STARS ★★★★★. The question will NOT finish or close after you click and rate me. DON'T WORRY. It will stay OPEN after you rate me and I can continue to answer your follow up questions at no additional charge, if you have any.

The stars are very important. If you don't RATE , I receive zero credit for my time with you. Hopefully you can rate me 3 stars or more. 5 stars rating is the best!

Again, if you have additional follow up questions for me, please ask and I will be happy to clarify. Your satisfaction is my #1 goal.

Any bonus you feel I earned is always very appreciated. For any NEW questions you have in the future that you would like only me to answer, you can begin the new post with the words "FOR JEN."

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
A partner ok that makes sense.

Yes, and the setup you described sounds like you would qualify. Of course it's always good to have a local attorney review your documents and analyze your particular case.

I hope this has been helpful and hope you can kindly issue a positive rating today.
