Where are you going to seek asylum?
to (a) find information on the asylum procedure, (b) seek help
from organisation for refugees and (c) contact a lawyer recommended
(a) The asylum procedures in all rich, ”industrialised” western
countries aren’t easy to understand. Legal remedies against
negative decisions are extremely difficult to use in practice.
An overview on legal and social conditions in European asylum
countries is given here. For many of these files you need to
download and install the acrobat reader unless it is already
on your computer. For getting an overview on legal and social
conditions in the United States, Canada, Australia, and Europe
use the pull-down menu above.
(b) The likelihood of getting protection from forcible return depends
on the early and qualified assistance. In order to find an appropriate
organisation in your asylum country please have a look at the various
directories using the pull-down menu.
(c) In many asylum states, it is necessary to consult a lawyer sooner
or later. However, we advise to consult, if ever you have enough time,
a refugee-assisting organisation first so that they can recommend you
a good and dedicated lawyer. Unfortunately, there are not only good and
dedicated lawyers working for asylum seekers, but also lawyers who are
not so good or not very much dedicated to refugee assistance. Lawyers
listed as asylum specialists in our directories will, in most of the
cases, be both good and dedicated.
