Note: this is a supplement to your specialty occupation evaluation.  You must separately purchase a specialty occupation evaluation to use this service.


Often, the USCIS also seeks demonstration of an evaluator’s understanding of the position and may dismiss an expert’s opinion letter if they believe that the expert did not have sufficient knowledge of the position in order to offer an accurate evaluation.  An interview can provide the evaluator with this needed knowledge.


During your interview, the evaluator (typically a professor) and a member of the Profval team will speak with your candidate’s supervisor to glean first-hand knowledge about your company, the role, the duties of the position, and other information that the USCIS typically requests. Interviews thus allow our experts to provide an evaluation based on first-hand knowledge that has the effect of countering claims that the evaluator’s opinion is not reflective of the job duties.  The evaluator will refer to the interview throughout his/her evaluation of your speciality occupation position or evaluation of your speciality occupation position with an added evaluation of the candidate's academic credentials.


If you include an interview with your evaluation, our time to completion schedule will begin after the interview is completed.

  • By completing a payment, you are agreeing to our terms of service which include the following parameters:

    a. ProfVal offers limited service guarantees but cannot and do not guarantee USCIS approval.

    If, within 7 days, you would like ProfVal to request changes to your evaluation, ProfVal will happily forward the changes you request at no cost and return the evaluation within 5-days. ProfVal or the expert(s), do however, have the right to reject any change(s) for any reason if ProfVal and/or evaluator(s) do not believe that the changes are factually correct and/or are inconsistent with our or their opinions.  Experts are contractors on behalf of ProfVal, but are not employees of ProfVal; their opinions are subjective and their independent opinions are based on their own experiences, the material provided to them by the client, and other resources that they may use.

    Changes that modify the scope of an evaluation or result from incorrect information submitted to ProfVal may result in additional fees.

    b. ProfVal offers Expert Opinion Letters (EOLs) but does not offer legal advice. You agree to carefully examine all documents for accuracy and errors. You take full responsibility for all errors that may adversely affect your or your client's case. You confirm that you are an immigration attorney or, if you are an individual or a company, that a licensed immigration attorney will review all aspects of your application, including any EOL(s) provided to you by ProfVal.

    c.  All evaluators agree to a non-circumvention agreement, which means that you agree not to circumvent ProfVal for any type of Expert Opinion letter. This means that you agree that you, the company you work for, or your affiliates will not ask experts that you meet on to complete EOLs for you or for someone else unless the EOLs are completed through the ProfVal platform.

    d. You agree not to not hold ProfVal OR any expert or independent contractor you interact with through ProfVal liable for any losses or damages incurred related to or resulting from an Expert Opinion Letter or any other type of service you purchase on or through ProfVal.

    e) ProfVal’s maximum liability for any service will not exceed the total amount paid by an individual client for a single evaluation. Refunds are provided at ProfVal’s discretion and only if ProfVal is unable to deliver the service(s) paid for. If a dispute is brought to court or arbitration over this contract, client will be responsible for ProfVal's attorney fees.
