Legal advisory

Juridsk rådgivning til udlandsdanskere

Do you need help and legal advisory?

Danes Worldwide possesses solid knowledge regarding the rights of Danes living outside Denmark. Our experience gained over many years puts us in a position to advise you regarding most situations you may encounter. Our legal advisory is ready to respond to phone calls and emails from members.

Three different types of legal assistance

In most cases, our legal team is able to give an adequate response within the limits of the membership. If the nature of the question is more complex and the legal advice included in the membership has been exhausted, you may have to pay a predetermined, additional fee depending on the complexity and time estimation of the case.

If you wish to have your case processed or reviewed, the price depends on the level of assistance needed. If you use our case processing service or extended legal assistance, you can set up a meeting with one of the legal advisors. In general, meetings are held online. 

  1. Legal advice (up to 30 minutes are included in the membership)
  2. Extended legal assistance (extra fee)
  3. Case processing service (fixed prices)

Most questions are answered readily by our legal advisor. In cases requiring additional input, members of a panel of experts respond to inquiries in such areas as preparing children for life in another country, understanding the security situation in the target area, or finding a physician speaking a given language

Could you have used our help in the past?

Since the 1920s, we have offered assistance to Danes abroad, but we want to keep improving. For that reason, we are interested in hearing your story. What difficulties did you encounter while you were living abroad? How were they resolved?

In addition, we would like to know which of our advocacy areas is or are most important for you. Perhaps there are other matters you feel warrant our attention. No matter what – we appreciate your willingness to share your experience with us so that we may get even better at what we do: Helping you, your family, and other families while you live abroad.
