Immigration Psychological Evaluations
Coming to the United States is a dream for many immigrants. However, obtaining legal status to remain in the US can be a challenging process. There are certain circumstances in which foreigners and their family members can petition to remain in the US.
Foreigners who are victims of serious crimes, human trafficking, domestic violence, or fear persecution may be eligible for legal status and remain in the United States. In these immigration cases, psychological evaluations are a valuable piece of evidence.
Psychological evaluations for immigration document:
- the unique circumstances surrounding an individual’s immigration status in the US
- any history of abuse and/or trauma
- mental health conditions
- current state of mind
- socio-political conditions in the native country
- possible emotional impact of deportation on the foreigner and US family members
