COMMON QUESTIONS:

WHAT IS IMMIGRATION PSYCHOLOGICAL EVALUATION?

 

A psychological evaluation for immigration court is used to document any mental health conditions or diagnosis. It describes from a psycho-social perspective how potential deportation can impact a client and their family.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

  • Send us a message or call/text 201-523-4048 so that we can answer any questions you may have and to set up an appointment.

  • We will send you an intake packet via e-mail or mail with consent forms and a questionnaire to fill out.

  • You will send your consent and questionnaire back to the clinician before your first appointment as we like to review all information prior to the initial session.

  • Depending on how quickly you need the evaluation, we like to break sessions up into 2-4 appointments to ensure we get all the information needed. (If you are unable to meet more than once, we will do our best to work with you in the time frame you have available).

  • Once all information is gathered, the clinician will begin working on the report. This can take about 2 weeks.

  • A report will then be mailed to your attorney.
