General notes

What advice?

Low-income citizens can Advisory assistance is provided in order to have legal advice and, if necessary, be represented. Advisory assistance can be provided in all areas of law. For more information, please contact the courts and lawyers as well as the other advisors.

Who receives advice, what are the conditions for this?

Consultative assistance is given, who after his or her personal and economic circumstances cannot apply the resources required for advice or representation. These are usually persons who are in progress to make a living according to the Twelfth Book of Social Law ("Social Assistance") . However, the conditions for this can also be met for other people with low incomes. For further information, please contact: the local courts and the advisors.

In the same matter, you may not have already been granted advice or have been denied by the court. If the matter is the same, it may need to be be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Since the advisory assistance for the exercise of rights is granted outside of a judicial procedure, no matter in the same matter may not be granted. Court proceedings are pending. This includes, for example, (b) a dispute settlement procedure before a quality body which has to be carried out in some countries before the imposition of a complaint (mandatory quality procedure pursuant to Section 15a of the Act concerning the introduction of the Code of Civil Procedure). If you want to be represented in a court case, you can get process costs or legal aid.

You may submit the application to the Local Court or you can directly consult one of the advisors of your choice mentioned below with the request for advice. In these cases, the application has to be received by the local court within 4 weeks of the start of the consultation, otherwise the application for advisory assistance will be rejected.

A decision of the local court, which rejects your request, is the non-temporary remedy of the memory. This means that you can explain in writing to the court why you do not agree with the decision.

Who provides counseling assistance?

The counseling assistance is granted to the counselors (lawyers and lawyers). Lawyers as well as legal counsel admitted to chambers of law, tax advisors and auditors in tax matters; pension advisors in pension matters too). Special legal advice centres, which have been set up under an agreement with the Land Justice Administrations, also provide advisory assistance.

In addition, it accepts your request for advice or your explanation and, if necessary, an authorization certificate.


What does the advisory service cost me?

If the counseling assistance is not already granted by the local court itself, but by an adviser, you will have to pay 15 euros to the counselor. The adviser may also waive this fee. All other costs of the advisory assistance generally bear the Landeskasse.

Further fees can be sent to you if the local court rejects your request for advice, after a consultation has already been made, or the Approval of advisory assistance will be repealed.
