Psychological Evaluations for Immigration in Chicago and Wheeling, IL

Immigration procedures can be long, complicated, and even stressful. You have so many meetings with your attorney and tons of documents to gather. Immigration cases can make you feel lost and very nervous. I can help you ease the procedure when it comes to the mental health assessment that you were recommended to obtain.

I specialize in evaluations for immigration cases. My goal is to provide my clients with a comprehensive mental health assessment regarding their petition for a U visa, Hardship Evaluation (Provisional Waivers), Cancellation of Removal, Asylum, and VAWA cases. Also, with the proper authorization, we can collaboratively work with your attorney, upon request.

Cases I have worked On:

  • U visa

  • VAWA

  • Asylum

  • Hardship Evaluations

  • I-601 Application (Provisional Waiver)

  • Cancellation of Removal

  • Orders of Protection


The psychological assessment mainly consists of a clinical interview. The clinical interview typically lasts about two to four hours, depending on your situation. Ruiz Psychological Services uses clinical scales and inventories to include in your psychological report. After your clinical interview is complete,  I dedicate about five to seven hours for the psychological report.

If you have any other types of situations or cases that require a psychological assessment, we may be able to assist you. Don’t hesitate to contact me with your questions. I am here to help you and your family’s needs during this challenging time.

I have assisted hundreds of cases and can guide you through the assessment process. We will gladly address any concerns and questions you may have.
