Immigration Hardship Waiver Assessment

Immigration Hardship Waiver Assessment
Why do I need an Immigration Hardship Waiver Assessment?
Immigration Hardship Waiver Assessment is a psychological evaluation that is conducted when a citizen or resident of the United States (Applicant) applies for an immigration waiver if the deportation of a relative causes extreme and exceptional hardship.
A psychological assessment to measure the impact caused by immigration issues is a helpful tool to explore overall functioning. The report will examine socioeconomic circumstances, financial hardships, work and social difficulties, and emotional health.
It is important to address the difficulties that the applicant will face if forced to move to another country or the lack of ability to remain in the U.S. without the alien. These processes include several interviews with parties that can be used as collateral witnesses to prepare the Hardship Waiver Assessment.

This type of assessment is extremely thorough and investigates the many aspects of the individual’s life upon which the assessment is being made. Deportation is not an isolated matter and has drastic effects on multiple lives when it occurs. The immigration hardship waiver is specially made to reconcile what could turn out to be an extremely destructive and even terrifying situation for whoever would be left behind in the wake of such an action.

These are called “Particularly Significant Factors.” USCIS’ policy guidance on extreme hardship is available at https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-9-part-b, part of the online USCIS Policy Manual, which will eventually replace the Adjudicator’s, Field Manual.
