The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Prevention Act offer T and U visas to immigrants who have been victims of serious crimes or trafficking while in the United States. These visas are granted to the victims to assist in the investigation or prosecution of criminals.
We’ll need to document your suffering from having been a victim of trafficking or crime.
Basically, there are two types of human trafficking: labor and sex. The evaluations assist in documenting the substantial mental suffering that has resulted from having been a victim of trafficking or crime. We’ll gather information about the type and characteristics of the trauma, the presenting psychiatric symptoms caused by the experience (such as anxiety, depression, sleep disorder, PTSD, etc.).
As with all other evaluations, the process starts by filling out some forms. It continues with comprehensive clinical interviews, use of standardized psychological tests, review of records and any other resources to assess the psychological impact of the condition and have a deep understanding of the case.
