The aim of the study was to examine the factorial structure of a socialization goal questionnaire across three groups within Germany. The instrument has been previously used in cross-cultural research to assess autonomy and relatedness orientations, but lacks validation in contexts of migration. Additionally, the original instrument was modified to account for specific manifestations of both orientations. Participants were Turkish migrant, Former Soviet Union migrant and non-migrant mothers with children at preschool age, living in Germany. Single-group confirmatory factor analyses (CFAs) lead to modification of the initial model. Following multigroup CFAs revealed configurational and metric equivalence across the three groups. However, fit indices did not support equivalent structural relations between factors at the variance/covariance level. In sum, the results support the factorial structure of the socialization goal questionnaire, but point to mothers' different conceptualizations of the relationship between both dimensions.
