We sup­port refu­gees in their asyl­um pro­ce­du­re, advi­se them on their pro­blems with fami­ly reuni­fi­ca­ti­on and threa­ten­ed depor­ta­ti­on. We also help with ques­ti­ons about rights of resi­dence and back up refu­gees on many other issues. If neces­sa­ry, we will give you the name of spe­cia­list advi­so­ry ser­vices in your area and help you to find a lawyer.

Our advice is given by pho­ne or by email. Our advi­sors use both Eng­lish and Ger­man. They tre­at each case con­sci­en­tious­ly, pro­fes­sio­nal­ly and with abso­lu­te confidentiality.

The PRO ASYL legal assistance fund

Some urgent cases call for inten­si­ve legal sup­port but tho­se con­cer­ned can’t afford the cost of a lawy­er or legal expert. Then it is pos­si­ble to app­ly for sup­port from the PRO ASYL legal assis­tance fund. This is done via the Refu­gee Coun­cil of the Ger­man sta­te in which you live. In such cases plea­se app­ly to our col­le­agues in the sta­te-level Refu­gee Coun­cils lis­ted here.

Our advi­so­ry ser­vice in indi­vi­du­al cases and legal assis­tance fund are finan­ced by dona­ti­ons and mem­ber­ship fees. Plea­se sup­port our work through your dona­ti­on.
