What Is Immigration Hardship Evaluation?

An Immigration Hardship Evaluation is a specialized assessment conducted by qualified professionals, such as psychologists or licensed clinical social workers, to document the potential severe impacts on a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident (LPR) if they were to be separated from their non-citizen family members due to deportation or denial of a visa application. 

This evaluation is often a crucial component of applications for various immigration waivers, including the I-601 and I-601A waivers, which can allow an inadmissible or deportable individual to remain in or enter the United States.

Purpose of Immigration Hardship Evaluation

The primary purpose of these evaluations is to provide detailed, professional evidence of the “extreme hardship” a U.S. citizen or LPR might endure. Under U.S. immigration law, extreme hardship is a necessary criterion to qualify for certain waivers of inadmissibility. The evaluation seeks to demonstrate how the citizen or resident’s life would be adversely affected in terms of mental health, financial stability, family dynamics, and overall well-being.
