Legal Advice

Legal Advice Ticket from the Local Court

People with very low income may apply for and be granted a legal advice ticket from the local court. Students with a low income can also apply for this aid.

With this ticket, legal rights outside of the court context can be exercised, i.e., it can be used for legal business apart from the legal process itself.

People in need of legal advice get a letter of authorisation with which they can consult a lawyer of their choice. A fee of € 15 must be paid there. If it is problematic for the person to raise this amount, it can be dispensed with.

A legal advice ticket is available for the following legal areas: civil law, family law, labour law, social law, administrative law and tax law. In criminal cases only verbal advice is possible.

Because the legal advice ticket is granted in correspondence to the income, the local court checks the financial situation of applying persons. It is therefore necessary to bring an up-to-date bank statement and proof of income and private assets as well as expenses (e.g., rental contract).

If you want to be legally represented at court in spite of a small income, you can apply for legal costs aid at the local court. Legal advice tickets as well as legal costs aid can be granted to international students, too.
