Any questions about your rights ?
In our family planning in Saint Josse, we offer you legal consultations, by appointment, on Thursdays between 12pm and 5 PM.
A jurist can provide you with legal advice regarding family law. They can also give advice and reorient you to other competent services (lawyer, notary, debt mediator...). in other areas as youth rights, housing rights, social assistance, debt, etc.
Here are some examples of situations in which the jurist can answer your questions :
- You want to know the differences between a marriage and a legal cohabitation,
- You are expecting a child and you have questions about its recognition,
- You wish to adopt a child and you want to be informed about the conditions and stages of the adoption procedure,
- You are separating and you want to know your rights in the context of this separation,
- Your son/daughter no longer lets you see your grandchildren and you want to know what your options are,
- Your ex-partner no longer pays the food contribution to which he has been condemned and you want to know how to recover these amounts,
- Your ex-partner wants to change your children from school and you do not agree,
- Your ex-partner wants to accommodate your common children more often and you do not agree,
- You are still a minor and you want to live independently,
- You are illegally residing in Belgium and wish to know the possibilities to regularize your situation,
- You are planning to submit an asylum application in Belgium and you have questions about the procedure,
- You want your minor child, who has remained in your country of origin, to join you in Belgium,
- You want to move out of your house/appartment... before the end of your lease.
During the consultation, the lawyer will be able to advise you, assist you or redirect you, if necessary,
The consultation is open to everyone, and is conducted in complete confidentiality.
