A comprehensive bio-psycho-social clinical evaluation conducted by a bilingual and
multicultural licensed mental health professional with years of experience 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 in the United States refer their clients to licensed mental

and possesses extensive experience working with immigrant populations from diverse
cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
