We can representation you in the following cases:
The admissibility of individual complaints before the European Court for Human Rights is linked to a series of criteria defined in Articles 34 and 35 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Many complaints are rejected because they are inaccurately worded or because it is not clear if they live up to the admissibility criteria, e.g. subsidiarity or deadline:
The complainant must have tried all national legal action first. In Germany, this is only the case after a verdict from the Federal Constitutional Court.
The complaint has to be lodged within 6 months of the court of final appeal’s judgement in the respective country. Delayed complaints will be dismissed.
The complainant must be affected individually, presently and directly with regard to his or her fundamental rights.
Many complaints are rejected because they are inaccurately worded or because it is not clear if they live up to the admissibility criteria, e.g. subsidiarity or deadline:
A constitutional complaint may be made by anyone who claims to be violated by one of his fundamental rights through public authority. Generally, the constitutional complaint is only admissible if all legal remedies before the regular courts have been exhausted. Constitutional complaints against court and administrative decisions must be lodged within one month of the decision in order to be admissible. Within this period, the complainant must also provide the complete reasoning, including all documents required.
