About this book

This book focuses on the psychologist’s role in assessing immigration cases and serving as an expert witness in these situations. It provides extensive background information on the history of immigration law in the U.S. and the legal precedents that establish professional qualifications for testifying in court, covering a range of forensic evaluations including spousal abuse, cognitive deficits, and hardship consequences of deportation.

Additionally, the book offers practical strategies for:

  • Writing a clinical report acceptable in court
  • Preparing the required waivers for an accurate evaluation
  • Qualifying as an expert witness

Conducting Psychological Assessments for U.S. Immigration Cases is a useful guide for psychologists serving a critical role carrying out evaluations that determine an immigrant’s status and future in the country.
