Immigration Evaluations

In immigration law, a psychological evaluation is often requested in order to assess the likelihood and probable course of extreme hardship and psychological distress that may be experienced as a result of a non-permanent resident’s removal from the U.S. A psychological evaluation is a comprehensive assessment that includes a detailed clinical interview, review of records, information of a person’s psychological history, current problems, and discussion of hardship from a psychological perspective. A typical evaluation consists of a 2-hour clinical interview, collateral interviews, psychological testing using objective measures, and 2-3 hours of report writing.

Immigration evaluations may be used in cases such as:

  • Cancellation of deportation

  • VAWA

  • U-Visa

  • Asylum

  • Medical Certification for Disability Exceptions
