Due to COVID-19 this practice has moved providing Immigration Evaluations via a secure online platform
Psychological evaluations are used to help immigration courts determine whether an individual will be able to remain lawfully in the United States.
An immigration evaluation begins with a consultation with your attorney to gather pertinent information about your case and its specific legal issues. The immigration evaluation itself includes in-depth interviews that occur over the course of 2 to 3 meetings. During the assessment process, I offer psychosocial evaluations for immigration cases, which are often used in the following situations:
Waivers (I-601 and I-601A)
Cancellation of Removal
VAWA and Spousal Abuse
Asylum, Withholding of Removal and Convention Against Torture
The immigration evaluation consists of an in-person interview followed by several questionnaires to assess a client’s current symptoms. The results from the interview are integrated into the narrative of the evaluation. A report is then drafted and sent confidentially to the attorney. Once they approve the final draft, a final report is mailed to the attorney handling your case.
Reports are composed of a compilation of 2-3 sessions that range from 60-190 minutes that included psychological testing and data. Reports range from 10-25 pages.
