Our experts offer psychological expertise and testimony on the following matters in immigration court:

  • Forensic Psychological Assessment in Asylum
  • Relief from Victimization: Violence Against Women Act (VAWA)
  • Relief from Victimization: U Visa and T Visa
  • Forensic Psychological Assessment of Extreme Hardship
  • Assessment of Dangerousness and Recidivism
  • Suspension of Deportation for Crimes of Moral Turpitude
  • Competency to Represent Self in Immigration Court
  • Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJ)

Forensic evaluations serve a vital purpose for immigration cases, especially for clients who have experienced trauma. These services are particularly important for immigrants who are seeking status through Asylum, U‐visa, T‐visa, VAWA, Special Immigrant Juvenile Status and Cancellation of Removal.

Forensic evaluators work closely with the immigration attorney(s) to aid immigration courts in a number of ways, by providing evidence of trauma in asylum seekers or in victims of human trafficking, or by assessing competency to participate in immigration proceedings, or risk for violence.
