Immigration Hardship Evaluation

A Mental Health Evaluation adds a tremendous value to an immigration case.  An expert evaluation conducted by a licensed mental health professional (in English or Spanish) along with a comprehensive report can be used by your attorney to support your case positively impact your immigration proceedings.

An Immigration Mental Health Evaluation is an assessment that is used to help immigration courts determine whether a person can legally remain in the United States. An immigration evaluation starts by talking with your attorney. If an attorney recommends that you and/or members of your family should

have an assessment completed, we would gather any relevant information about your case along with any specific legal issues.

The immigration evaluation includes questions regarding, but are not limited to, your current immigration status; your personal and family history; your work history; and any medical or psychiatric history that may be relevant.  We will then complete a written report and send it to your attorney.

Immigration Evaluations and reports can be beneficial for any of the following immigration proceedings:

  1. Extreme Hardship Cases

  2. Spousal Abuse (VAWA)

  3. Political Asylum Cases

  4. U Visa



The cost of the hardship evaluation is variable, as the cost is dependent on several factors including the complexity of the case, the number of qualifying family members participating in the evaluation, and if the report needs to be expedited. The evaluation includes the initial assessment time, 3-4 (60 minutes) sessions with the client, communication with the attorney, time spent making changes to the evaluation during the attorney collaboration process, and the final written report with diagnosis if applicable. Please note: this does not include court testifying and travel fees (if applicable).
