EU applying for C permit but without job


My wife is an EU Citizen (I am not). we both have B permits. She would like to leave her job because we are having a child. I am an entrepreneur but am not employed by a Swiss company, rather I work internationally. So I don't really have a way to say I need to stay in Switzerland to do my work. My B permit is because of her.

Our question is, can she get the C permit (which she can apply for in spring) without having a job? I have heard conflicting things.

Re: EU applying for C permit but without job

My husband and I are both EU citizens and I got my C permit back in December (along with the rest of the family) and I wasn't working at the time. There does seem to be slightly different rules depending on where you live though (a friend who lives in the next town was told she needed to sit a German test before she would be eligible whereas we had no such requirement).
