Legal Aid

Due to its limited human and financial resources, ASF is not in a position to offer individual legal aid outside of its programmes and its permanent missions. ASF can not take on individual files in areas such as immigration, visa applications, family law, tax law, succession or in civil and commercial litigation. Similarly, ASF does not intervene in judicial or administrative cases in Belgium, including criminal matters.

It is for this reason that we advise you to contact the following organisations:

ASF around the world

Based in Brussels, Avocats Sans Frontières (ASF) is an NGO specialised in supporting access to justice. ASF has no connection with the French NGO Avocats Sans Frontières, headed by Mr. Gilles-William Goldnadel in Paris. The public positions and statements of Mr. Goldnadel therefore do not in any way represent those of ASF.

On the 4th of November 2009, we had to withdraw the license of Avocats Sans Frontières France that enabled them to use the ‘Avocats Sans Frontières’ name since 1998. This was triggered by the violation of the dispositions outlined in the license.
