Mental Health/Psychological Evaluations for Immigration

Mental Health/Psychological Evaluations for VAWA, Hardship, U-Visa, & Asylum Cases.

Having the support of a mental health/psychological evaluation in immigration cases can often help create a fuller and more comprehensive picture. These evaluations support attorney's case and can be a crucial piece for supportive evidence for the courts.

Examples of how some of the evaluations are tailored to fit the particular needs of each case:

  • Asylum Cases – Explaining psychological reasons why a client missed the one-year filing deadline; and detailing how PTSD symptoms provide evidence of the persecution they suffered.

  • Extreme Hardship Cases – Identifying unique factors contributing to a client’s psychological distress such as: illness; disability; professional, financial, or academic hardship; or adverse home-country conditions that would affect the petitioner or their family members.

  • VAWA Cases – Detailing the client’s psychological symptoms which are common for domestic violence victims; assessing credibility; and where useful, explaining less common phenomena such as ways in which men are abused by female partners.
