Psychological Evaluations to Determine “Extreme Hardship” in Immigration Cases
Extreme hardship can be demonstrated in many aspects of your life such as:

HEALTH/MEDICAL – Ongoing or specialized treatment requirements for a physical or mental condition; availability and quality of such treatment in your fiancé/spouse’s country, anticipated duration of the treatment; whether a condition is chronic or acute, or long-or short-term.

FINANCIAL CONSIDERATIONS – Future employability; loss due to sale of home or business or termination of a professional practice; decline in standard of living; ability to recoup short-term losses; cost of extraordinary needs such as special education or training for children; cost of care for family members (i.e., elderly and infirmed parents).

EDUCATION – Loss of opportunity for higher education; lower quality or limited scope of educational options; disruption of current program; requirement to be educated in a foreign language or culture with ensuing loss of time for grade; availability of special requirements, such as training programs or internships in specific fields.

PERSONAL CONSIDERATIONS – Close relatives in the United States; separation from spouse/children; ages of involved parties; length of residence and community ties in the United States.

SPECIAL FACTORS – Cultural, language, religious, and ethnic obstacles; valid fears of persecution, physical harm, or injury; social ostracism or stigma; access to social institutions or structures.

Any other situation that you feel may help you meet the burden of extreme hardship.

Include as much legitimate, detailed evidence as possible. For example, in discussion of medical conditions of the USC, include personal letters from your doctor, nurses, therapists, medical records, prescription information, etc. Always try to include information from US government sources such as Information from the National Institutes of Health
