Immigrants often flee their home countries in order to escape abuse, torture and physical hardship. In addition, the process of leaving one’s homeland is often physically, emotionally, and financially taxing.
A clinical immigration evaluation may be necessary or prudent when dealing with the U.S. immigration authorities in the following circumstances:
To assist in proving an individual’s genuine and immediate fears of returning to their home country.
To show substantial ties and entrenchment in the U.S. and the psychological hardship that would result if the individual had a return to their home country.
To demonstrate that mental illness or trauma may be responsible for why there are logical flaws in immigration statements.
