Legal consultation

Some legal questions cannot be answered by co-workers of the social consultation hour. This are complicated questions, for example about residence permits, social benefits, labor contracts, name changes or questions about family law.

Stap Verder therefore offers free legal consultation time where you can ask your questions to a lawyer. You can explain your problem or ask your question, and the lawyer will inform you as well as possible given the short time frame. If it becomes clear that your problem requires more extensive advice and/or a procedure, than the lawyers can assist you out of their law firm De Binnenstad.

The legal consultation time is managed by lawyers from the law firm De Binnenstad. This office is a well-known office in Amsterdam that specializes in providing legal assistance to people with little or no money.
