WELCOME TO ASYLEX
AsyLex is a non-profit organization located in Switzerland providing legal advice to asylum seekers.
It is our vision that every asylum seeker in Switzerland knows the basics of the asylum procedure, is aware of the criteria for asylum and has access to legal advice at any time.
What does the asylum procedure in Switzerland look like?
This short introduction video on YouTube gives you a quick overview on the asylum procedure in Switzerland, including the Dublin procedure. You can find more information in our FAQ, our Self-Assessment Chatbot and our Handout on the Asylum Procedure.
WHAT WE DO
If you don't have a lawyer, AsyLex can support and advise you in different steps of the Swiss asylum procedure and asylum law in general. For example, we can write an appeal or make a hardship request if you have a negative decision from SEM. Further, we can advise you under which circumstances and how to change your permit and we can help you to prepare for your interview with SEM.
The AsyLex Detention Team can provide legal advice on administrative detention and representation to asylum seekers directly, or to a friend or a family member who is currently detained.
We will examine the legality of your detention, we will explain the reasons and we will represent you in court.
You can write an email to the AsyLex Detention Team or, if you are client who is in custody, you can give us a call at our emergency telephone number.
The goal of family reunification is to have children and spouses transferred to Switzerland, where the other family member(s) already live.
For any family-related legal or administrative questions, feel free to write an email to the AsyLex Family Reunification Team.
Besides these topics, AsyLex has several specialised teams focusing, among others, on Criminal Law, Social Law, the Dublin Procedure and International Litigation.
