Legal Aid Application Forms

Application for legal aid and wealth disclosure statement – electronic submission

Applications for legal aid may be electronically submitted to the Constitutional Court, using the form entitled „Verfahrenshilfe beim Verfassungsgerichtshof – Antrag auf Bewilligung“ (“Legal aid at the Constitutional Court – application for approval”). To be able to use the form sheet, you have to be identified and authenticated within the system, either through an electronic identification card (citizen’s card – Bürgerkarte) or through a mobile phone signature.

Submission of the application by e-mail is not an admissible form of electronic submission (see section 14a para 1 VfGG in conjunction with the Ordinance issued by the President of the Constitutional Court on the electronic filing and/or transmission of submissions, enclosures to submissions, documents executed by the Constitutional Court, and copies of submission and enclosures).
