Immigration Evaluations In Greensboro
What is an immigration waiver?
You are here because you are searching for a counselor or psychologist to conduct your immigration evaluation for a waiver case. Our office, Santos Counseling PLLC, provides immigration evaluations for varying immigration legal cases. Including the immigration waiver cases.
Immigration waiver evaluations take place over a course of a few sessions. The number of sessions depends on the specific details to the immigration waiver case. Your counselor takes time to work with your immigration attorney in order to provide a more effective and clinically competent service.
The immigration evaluation includes taking mental health tests, answering numerous interview-related questions, and exploring dynamics in the relationship with the petitioner.
The waiver case focuses on one person petitioning for another. For instance, a husband petitioning for his wife. The counselor would provide the immigration evaluation for the partner who holds legal status and is the one that is the petitioner.
The purpose of the evaluation is to act as a professional mental health assessment that explores the client’s background, identifies symptoms, evaluates if there is a diagnosis, and identifies perspective recommendations.
The counselor’s role during the immigration evaluation is neutral and unbiased. This simply means that the evaluation is not subjective and completely focused on a professional opinion over the details of the immigration case.
If you have any questions regarding the immigration evaluation, please call our office at 336-663-6570 or email [email protected]
