Legal Aid

The Ocalenie Foundation offers free legal assistance for foreigners. In 2020, our legal team provided 1384 consultations.


We mostly help with issues related to:

  • international protection in Poland,
  • temporary and permanent residence,
  • citizenship,
  • work permits,
  • family reunification.

Our legal team in Warsaw consists of three people and operates as part of the Help Center for Foreigners. We also employ one lawyer in Łomża.

Our lawyers speak Polish, Russian and English.


Are you a foreigner living in Poland and looking for legal assistance?

Write to us: [email protected] and briefly present your case. We will try to help.

Important! We do not assist with criminal cases.
