The green card lottery requirements are fairly simple and we have covered them previously:

  4. One must submit his or her entry electronically together with one's picture here 
  5. One must submit only ONE entry (more than one entry will lead to disqualification).

No Immigration Attorney or Immigration Consultant Required

One is not obligated to use an Immigration attorney or an immigration consultant to prepare and file the green card lottery DV-2018 application. We advocate for Do It Yourself Green Card. 

This article serves as a guide to initial information about it. More specific instruction can be downloaded and reviewed here. 

​Do some additional research and you should be fine. Our recommendation about the immigration attorney is get it if your case is complex or you or your fiance has bad history with the immigration law. Otherwise, we do not see a reason why you should pay an immigration attorney.
