But when serious obstacles arise, it can feel impossible. The stress of the immigration process alone can be overwhelming. If you or a loved one are struggling with financial burdens during this journey in Georgia, immigration psychological evaluations may help describe the nature of the problems and their consequences. 

Mental Health and Financial Stress in Immigration

Financial stress significantly compounds the already daunting challenges faced throughout the immigration process. The relentless weight of this stress can take a heavy toll. An immigration psychological evaluation, conducted by a licensed mental health professional, offers a thorough assessment of how these interwoven stressors impact your mental and emotional well-being.

When financial resources are stretched thin, the overwhelming struggle to make ends meet can have far-reaching consequences. Persistent anxiety and worry can become a constant companion, leading to unease and fear that interfere with daily life. Feelings of hopelessness and despair can worsen or even trigger depression, stripping away motivation and the ability to find joy. The strain on relationships adds further isolation and hardship, making it even more difficult to cope. All of these factors can create additional barriers to successfully adjusting to a new environment and culture in Georgia, hindering the ability to build a fulfilling life.

Proving Financial Hardship in Georgia

Immigration psychological evaluations are helpful for establishing potential “hardship.” US immigration law recognizes that remaining in the US may be vital for the well-being of US citizens or permanent residents if the person seeking immigration relief were to be removed from the country.  Psychological evaluations provide a professional, evidence-based way to clearly document these hardships.

A psychological evaluation can document the specific financial difficulties you’re experiencing in Georgia. It goes further, establishing a link between these hardships and the emotional and mental toll they have taken.

Who Can Benefit From These Evaluations?

Psychological evaluations demonstrating financial hardship may be helpful in certain immigration cases within Georgia, such as:

  •           Hardship waivers: If you face possible deportation, a waiver may allow you to stay in the US. Financial hardship is often considered by the trier of fact when the weight of each hardship is assessed. 
  •           Cancellation of removal: Immigrants in Georgia, Florida, and other states who have been in the US for several years and can demonstrate hardship may be able to halt their deportation or removal.
  •           Other immigration proceedings within Georgia: If the circumstances of your case involve unusual or extreme hardship caused by financial difficulties, a psychological evaluation can be a means to document relevant hardships the trier of fact will consider.
