A comprehensive bio-psycho-social clinical evaluation conducted by a bilingual and
multicultural licensed mental health professional with over two decades of clinical
experience working with immigrant populations 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 cases.
The best immigration attorneys in the United States refer their clients to licensed mental
health professionals who are experienced in the 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 empathy, knowledge and experience working with
immigrant populations from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
