Our team of asylum law lawyers advise and support refugees in their asylum cases and on any other legal issues which are connected to their asylum cases.  The advice is free of charge.

We offer personal advice and support you regarding any legal questions in asylum or migration matters. As part of this advice we can assess your prospects of receiving leave to remain in Austria. Furthermore we can inform you about the necessary administrative procedures, the legal situation in your individual case, and can explain the effect and meaning of any decisions made by the immigration authorities. We can also draft and lodge documents with the authorities to ensure that your rights in your case are protected
