Legal advice and assistance

HEKS/EPER Legal Advice Office for Asylum Seekers Thurgau

The HEKS/EPER Legal Advice Office in Thurgau informs asylum seekers and third parties (persons, government authorities, organizations) about the asylum procedure and the regulation of residency status and advises them on other asylum-related issues. In selected cases it assumes legal representation and acts on behalf of asylum seekers during the procedure before the authorities and the courts.

Free and unbureaucratic advice

The Legal Advice Office provides asylum seekers and temporarily admitted persons with legal advice, free of cost, every Wednesday afternoon (1.30 – 4.30 p.m.) and Friday morning (9:00 – 12:00 noon). Lawyers provide information on issues of asylum law and the law on foreign nationals and examine the legality of negative asylum decisions. In the event of actual or threatened infringements of rights they assume legal representation and support asylum seekers in enforcing their rights vis-a-vis courts and authorities.

Commissioned by the Canton of Thurgau, the Legal Advice Office also takes care of unaccompanied minor asylum seekers during their procedure. In addition, the Legal Advice Office provides continuing training and lectures on asylum-related topics when so requested.
