I provide evaluations which can provide valuable evidence for individuals applying for immigrant visa status from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS). My report focuses on documenting evidence of psychological complications you may have suffered for your VAWA, U-Visa or hardship case. I work with your attorney to ensure the immigration evaluation conducted suits the needs of your case.
Cases for which immigration evaluation are provided:
Extreme Hardship Waiver - This psychosocial evaluation report examines the potential impact of a foreign national's deportation on a United States Citizen or Greencard Holder's parent, spouse, or immediate relative.
Spousal Abuse (VAWA)- These psychosocial evaluation reports address the impact of domestic abuse on an individual, abuse endured by their U.S. Citizen spouse. Abuse is not limited to physical maltreatment, this includes verbal and/or psychological abuse.
U-Visa -These visas are set aside for victims of crimes (and their immediate family members) who have suffered substantial mental or physical abuse while in the U.S. and who are willing to assist law enforcement and government officials in the investigation or prosecution of the criminal activity. The psychosocial evaluation report serves as a support in the identification of psychological damage endured by the individual victim of the crime.
