An Immigration Assessment can be critical evidence for your immigration case.
Don’t make the mistake of submitting your immigration application without a Clinical Immigration Assessment attached. Keeping your family together may depend on it.
What does a Clinical Immigration Assessment entail?
A Clinical Immigration assessment requires a minimum of 2-4 sessions that must be scheduled at least one week apart. After the final session, a written report is prepared. It will take 2-3 weeks, after the assessment sessions are completed, for a final report to be submitted to you and/or your immigration attorney (holidays are exempt). Our assessments are comprehensive and powerful.
First Session: 2 hour long interview assessing interests, personal strengths and weaknesses, mental functioning, as well some childhood and family history.
Subsequent Sessions: Take place at least a week after each session. They will be about 1 hour long and include several diagnostic tests.
Report: After the final session a report will be completed in 2-3 weeks. A comprehensive document, consisting of 15-20 pages will include psychological, physical, familial, emotional, and other relevant information as well as a diagnosis that is needed for the immigration application will be sent to you and/or your immigration attorney. If you require an expedited report, it is available for an additional fee.
Types of Immigration Assessments
Extreme Hardship Immigration Cases: In this type of immigration waiver the legal US citizen (spouse, parent, adult child) would suffer ‘exceptional hardship’ if the undocumented immigrant had to relocate to his/her country of origin, OR if the legal U.S. citizen were forced to leave the U.S. to join the undocumented immigrant in his/her country of origin.
VAWA Cases: This type of waiver includes women and men. In Domestic Violence cases the immigrant is married to a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident. In these cases, the immigrant is being emotionally, physically, sexually, financially, and/or psychologically abused and the spouse is not willing to help the immigrant to adjust her/his status.
Asylum Cases: In this type of immigration waiver, the immigrant has been exposed to extreme deprivation, severe abuse, and possibly even torture in their country of origin due to discrimination, political, religious, and/or ethnic persecution. The immigrant flees his or her country to the United States to escape the intolerable living conditions.
A good immigration attorney usually will require you to have a clinical assessment to support your case.
A clinical assessment is an indispensable tool in winning an immigration case. It is a valuable piece of evidence which improves your chance to get your waiver granted.
The absence of an Clinical Immigration assessment in your immigration case can lead to delays which can cause further emotional and financial hardships. This, in turn, can lead to mental and physical health problems for you and/or your family members.
A family therapist’s professional opinion regarding how the U.S. citizen or immigrant would suffer if separated/deported greatly strengthens your case.
