A comprehensive Bio-Psycho-Social Clinical evaluation conducted by a licensed mental
health professional with years of experience and approved by the United States
Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) can make a huge difference in your case.
A clinically sound evaluation can help in cases such as Cancellation of Removal, Petitions
to Remove Conditions on Residence, Political Asylum, and even Applications for
Naturalization when the individual has been found to lack good moral character due to a
substance or other mental health related disorders. However, there are three types of
cases in which an evaluation indicating the presence of a mental condition is very likely to
help your immigration case: extreme hardship, domestic abuse and victims of crime.
The best immigration attorneys refer their clients to licensed mental health professionals
who are experienced in assessment of personality and mental health disorders and who
can provide professionally written reports and expert witness testimony on behalf of their
clients. The best clinical evaluators have dual education, abroad and in the United
States, are fully licensed and legally able to emit a clinical diagnosis in the State of
Georgia. An excellent clinical evaluator is culturally and linguistically competent and
possesses extensive experience working with immigrant populations from diverse cultural
and ethnic backgrounds.
