Immigration Evaluation Q & A

What is an immigration evaluation?

The immigration process can be long. Sometimes, psychological evaluations are necessary along the way. The results of these evaluations help the court to decide whether you’re able to remain in the United States lawfully. This process can be confusing, especially if you’re new to the country and aren’t fluent in English.

At The Green Room Psychological Services Inc., the team has over 10 years of experience working with immigration attorneys. Members of the staff are fluent in multiple languages, including Spanish, Farsi, and Arabic. They know that cases are often time-sensitive, and the team helps you book your evaluation appointment within a week and submit the results of your report within two or three weeks. They also accept two pro bono cases per month.

When do I need an immigration evaluation?

There are several instances in which the court may require you to get an immigration evaluation. Proceedings that require these evaluations include:

Medical Exemption Certificate for Disability Exceptions (Form N-648)

This form allows you to be exempt from the English and civics testing requirements for immigration. In order to qualify, you must demonstrate a physical, developmental, or mental disability that prevents you from successfully taking the tests.


If you’re new to the country and were convicted of a crime, you may be allowed to cancel your impending deportation by proving that your removal would cause extreme hardship to your family. In some cases, you can prove that being deported would cause extreme hardship for yourself, too.


You can be granted asylum in the United States if your race, religion, nationality, or political views cause you to be persecuted in your home country, or if you went through an extreme hardship there. Psychological evaluations provide the court with evidence of your hardship or persecution.

Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)

If you’re the battered spouse or child of a United States citizen and want to gain citizenship for yourself, VAWA allows you to apply without your abuser knowing. The evaluation provides evidence for the court.

What happens at an immigration evaluation?

At The Green Room Psychological Services Inc., the team walks you through each step of your evaluation to make the process as easy as possible. Your evaluation involves two or three meetings with your provider. During these meetings, your provider interviews you about your:

  • Family history
  • Medical history
  • Psychological history
  • Work history
  • Concerns about the immigration process

You may also be asked to take surveys or evaluations for specific purposes, including neurocognitive test, depression and anxiety inventory tests, or partner violence surveys.

An immigration evaluation can support your immigration case immensely. To reserve a prompt evaluation, call The Green Room Psychological Services Inc. today.
