Psychological immigration evaluations can provide invaluable evidence for individuals applying for immigrant visa status from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). I collaborate with your attorney to provide immigration evaluations, which assist your attorney establish emotional hardship in your Hardship Wavier case or provides evidence of psychological complications you have may have suffered for your VAWA or U-Visa case.
Common types of cases for which immigration evaluation are needed:
Extreme Hardship Waiver – In these cases, the psychosocial evaluation report must examine the potential impact of a foreign national’s deportation on a United States Citizen or Greencard Holder’s parent, spouse, or immediate relative. Physicians in J-1 visa status and subject to a 2-year foreign residency requirement may qualify for a waiver of the foreign residency requirement if they can demonstrate hardship to family members or a fear of persecution.
Spousal Abuse (VAWA)- Individuals filing for US immigration benefits based on a marriage to a United States Citizen can continue on their path to gain full immigration benefits (i.e., Greencard) without the support of their US Citizen spouse. Psychosocial evaluation reports addressing the impact of domestic abuse can be vital to securing long term immigration benefits. It is important to note that abuse is not limited to physical evidence — verbal and/or psychological abuse also qualify for the granting of a waiver.
U-Visa –These visas are set aside for victims of crimes (and their immediate family members) who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse while in the U.S. and who are willing to assist law enforcement and government officials in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. It permits such victims to enter or remain in the US when they might not otherwise be able to do so.
