Immigration Psychosocial Services

Empowering Your Immigration Journey with Compassionate Psychosocial Evaluations

Welcome to The Unscripted Therapist's immigration evaluation psychosocial services. I understand that navigating the complexities of immigration law, especially when intertwined with experiences of trauma and abuse, can be incredibly overwhelming. At my practice, I provide compassionate support to individuals seeking relief under various immigration provisions such as VAWA, U visa, T visa, cancellation of removal, and hardship waivers.

VAWA (Violence Against Women Act): VAWA is a United States federal law that provides protection and support for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, and other forms of gender-based violence. It allows certain immigrants who are survivors of abuse perpetrated by a U.S. citizen or permanent resident to petition for legal status without relying on their abuser.

 

U Visa: The U visa is a nonimmigrant visa set aside for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity. It offers victims temporary legal status and the possibility of obtaining lawful permanent residence in the United States.

 

T Visa: The T visa is a form of immigration relief for victims of human trafficking who are present in the United States as a result of trafficking. It allows victims to remain in the United States and provides a path to lawful permanent residence.

 

Cancellation of Removal: Cancellation of removal is a form of relief from deportation available to certain non-permanent residents who are in removal proceedings before an immigration judge. To qualify, individuals must demonstrate continuous physical presence in the United States for a specified period, good moral character, and that their removal would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to a qualifying family member who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.

 

Hardship Waivers: Hardship waivers, often referred to as waivers of inadmissibility, are available for certain immigrants who are otherwise ineligible for admission to the United States due to specific grounds of inadmissibility. These waivers allow individuals to seek relief by demonstrating that their denial of entry would result in extreme hardship to a qualifying relative who is a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident.

My primary goal is to offer a safe and empathetic space where you can share your experiences without fear or judgment. Through comprehensive evaluations, I strive to understand the unique challenges you've faced and the impact they've had on your psychological well-being. These evaluations play a vital role in your immigration journey, providing documented evidence of the hardships you've endured and the support you need to access the relief you deserve.

By partnering with me, you gain access to specialized expertise aimed at articulating the psychological effects of trauma and abuse to immigration authorities. My thorough assessments can help strengthen your case, providing compelling evidence that highlights the significance of your experiences and the necessity of the relief you're seeking.

I recognize the courage it takes to seek help and advocate for yourself in the face of adversity. Rest assured, I'm here to walk alongside you every step of the way, offering compassionate guidance and unwavering support throughout the immigration process. Together, we can work towards securing a brighter, more hopeful future.

Let me be your ally in this journey towards healing and justice. Contact me today to learn more about how my services can support you in your immigration endeavors.
