An Immigration Clinical Evaluation is mental health assessment that is used to help immigration courts determine whether an individual will be able to remain lawfully in the United States.
An immigration evaluation begins with a discussion with your attorney. Once your attorney recommends that you and/or other members of your family (e.g., a child, a spouse) should undergo a clinical evaluation, I would speak with your attorney and gather pertinent information about your case and its specific legal issues.
The immigration evaluation itself includes in-depth interviews that usually spread over 2-4 sessions. During the assessment process, I will ask you questions about yourself and your immigration case. The topics will include, but are not limited to, your current immigration predicament; your personal, marital and family history; your work history; and medical and psychiatric history that are relevant to the case. In addition to meeting and speaking with you, in some situations, it is important and necessary for me to speak with other people who may have pertinent information for this evaluation. I will inform you about each step as it become relevant. I will then write a detailed report and send it to your attorney within 14 days of our final session. If your attorney has suggested you receive a immigration clinical evaluation, and you living in Douglasville, Lithia Springs, Mableton, Villa Rica, Carrollton, or any other town in West Georgia, then I am here to help.
