A psychosocial/mental health evaluation is a comprehensive summary that considers a variety of factors included but not limited to: psychiatric and physical illness, description of the problem, legal status, psychological testing, assets and resources, the prognosis of the outcome, clinical formulation, plan and recommendations for treatment.
Hardship Evaluation is when a US citizen or legal permanent resident applies for a waiver on behalf of a loved one considering that deportation would result in extreme hardship. The purpose of conducting a psycho-social evaluation is to evaluate and explain in writing the hardships at which all family members would face if deportation takes place.
These types of evaluations are recommended by courts, immigration attorneys and other professionals to gain ample understanding of individuals extenuating circumstances.
