Psychological Evaluations for Immigration

I offer psychological evaluations for immigration. These can help to determine if individuals are able to lawfully remain in the United States. Immigration evaluations are provided online in Ohio, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

What is a psychological evaluation for immigration?

A psychological evaluation for immigration, is a detailed clinical assessment which is used to support immigration proceedings.

You might need an evaluation if you are involved in an immigration case and your lawyer has recommended you get an evaluation to help with your case. The goal of this is to give a better idea of your background and circumstances, to individuals who are making a decision about your immigration case. 

A comprehensive psychological evaluation when completed by a licensed mental health professional can reveal a lot of important information about your immigration struggles and mental health. This can then help move your case forward. 

The way you tell your story can greatly impact the outcome of your immigration case.

What can you expect from a typical evaluation?

I will initially conduct a clinical interview with you to gather information. During the interview, I will ask questions about your background history, immigration case and mental health. This interview will be done over 2-4 sessions, with each session being 1-1.5-2 hours long. 

When needed, I will collaborate with your attorney or those familiar with the case (i.e. family members, doctors) to gain knowledge about you and the case. I will also be administering clinical assessment tools during the evaluation (i.e. those assessing your mental health).
