Immigration Psychological Evaluation

Hardship Evaluations (601 Waivers)
Trauma Evaluations (Asylum, U-Visa, VAWA)

Sessions for extreme hardship evaluations are 2 – 4 hours long. Trauma evaluation sessions are 4 – 6 hours long.

All reports are completed and submitted to the referring attorney within a week of the evaluation session.

Due to current capacity, serving as an expert witness in court proceedings is not available at his time.

Extreme Hardship (601 Waivers)
The extreme hardship evaluation is conducted to assess the impact on a U.S. citizen/resident whose spouse, parent, or child is being deported. The purpose is to identify the hardships that will be faced by the U.S. citizen/resident as a result of the deportation of their family member if the U.S. citizen/resident remains in the U.S. or if the U.S citizen/resident relocates to the country in which their family member is being deported to.

This evaluation is provided to immigrants who come to the U.S. to seek safety from persecution in their home countries. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the current degree of mental health impact on an immigrant based on past trauma or persecution experienced resulting in a genuine fear of considering the possibility of returning to their country of origin.

This is for immigrants who have been direct victims of a violent crime, a witness to a crime or the parent of a minor who was the victim of a crime as certified by the attorney via police department as a qualifying crime, and must have cooperated with law enforcement by reporting and subsequently cooperating with any investigation, testifying, etc. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess the incident and its impact on the immigrant’s current mental health status.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
This evaluation applies to both women and men, and focuses on how an immigrant’s (non)-residency status is being used as a form of abuse, control, or intimidation in the form of promises to apply for residency, threat of reporting them to ICE, or of having them / their children deported. An immigrant is able to petition for permanent residency without any support of the abusive family member.
