What is criminal law

Anyone may experience a criminal offense, an arrest or a criminal proceeding at any time in their life. You too. If that is the case, you will undoubtedly have many questions.

  • Have you been arrested and would you like to know what your rights are?
  • Did you receive a summons from the public prosecutor?
  • Have you been convicted by the court and do you want to make an appeal?
  • Do you want to object to a criminal order?
  • Have you received a transaction proposal, for example a proposal to pay an amount of money to the CJIB?
  • Have you been summoned by the police to be questioned?
  • Have you been acquitted and do you want to submit a claim for compensation?
  • Are you a victim of a crime and do you want to hold the suspect(s) liable for the damage you have suffered?
  • Have you applied for a Certificate of Good Conduct (VOG) and was the application refused?
  • Do you want to know what the consequences of a criminal order or conviction are for your criminal record?

We can inform and advise you on the abovementioned and many more issues. Contact us and discuss the case with us for FREE! If you have been convicted, please make sure that you get in touch with us in time, because an appeal must be made within two weeks after the judgment. If you are too late, this means that the judgment can no longer be succesfully affected.

CAN WE ALWAYS HELP YOU?

Frequently asked questions: Criminal law

Every first conversation is always FREE and without obligation. We make an initial assessment and, if necessary, take over the administrative burden from you.

We work mainly on the basis of funded legal aid: if your income and assets are below a certain limit, the government will in many cases pay your lawyer fees. You only have to pay a small personal contribution, which depends on your income. If you have a benefit, you are almost always eligible for funded legal aid. More information and current income and wealth standards can be found at www.rvr.org .

The length of a procedure depends very much on the type of case and at what stage the case is. The government is bound by statutory decision periods.
Application phase A decision must be made within a 'reasonable period': in any case within eight weeks after the application, unless the period is suspended by the government because, for example, you still have to provide information. It may also be the case that specific deadlines apply to certain applications: applications to the Immigration and Naturalization Service (usually) have periods of 90 days and even six months.
Objection phase This applies within six weeks must be decided (in an advisory committee 12 weeks), which term can also be extended by another six weeks. Again, different times may apply on a case-by-case basis. For example, the Immigration and Naturalization Service sometimes uses different terms, such as 19 weeks for objections to regular applications.
Appeals and Appeals Phase During these phases, the duration can increase enormously, depending on when there is an opportunity to schedule a hearing. If it concerns a large criminal case, the duration can amount to a year or even two. If it concerns a case on appeal against a benefit, this can also amount to more than a year's waiting period.
