Immigration Evaluations

Immigration Evaluations

We specialize in comprehensive evaluations to help you and your attorney identify the psychological distress you or your family would experience if you were deported.

An in-depth psychological assessment is essential when applying for asylum due to psychological hardship, emotional distress, or cognitive impairment.

How We Can Help

We take a collaborative approach and work with you, your family, and your attorney when we complete your evaluation. Our in-depth assessment will identify the psychological impact and distress that deportation will have on you and your family.

A psychological evaluation can be beneficial for the following situations:

What to Expect

Our immigration evaluations typically involve:

  • A clinical interview with you and close members of your family. The interview will help us understand important psychological, medical, and social background information, and your current cognitive and psychological functioning.
  • Consultation with your attorney to determine the type of waiver that will be best suited for your case.
  • A review of medical, psychological, and other collateral documents that help us have a better understanding of your psychological and emotional functioning.
  • We will administer psychological and neuropsychological tests to objectively assess for mental health diagnoses and/or cognitive impairment.  We will administer and interpret paper and computer-based tests to assess for:
    • General intellectual abilities
    • Higher level executive skills such as reasoning and problem solving
    • Attention and concentration
    • Language comprehension and communication
    • Visual-spatial skills and perception
    • Memory impairment
    • Motor and sensory skills
    • Mood and personality
    • Psychological diagnoses
  • After we complete the evaluation, we will write a comprehensive report that integrates our findings and give it to your attorney.

A psychological evaluation will strengthen your client’s case for hardship or asylum
