The stalking charges were filed within the last two weeks. I was planning to visit Germany this summer. I would like to know how can I get information about the charges and if they will be prosecuted? Also, could I be prosecuted for these charges if the victim comes to the US?
Dear Customer,if the alleged victim contacs the police and gives them your address in the US you will be contacted by letter.The letter has to have a reference number and so you can phone and ask about pending charges.No you will not be prosecuted in the US but Germany has the jurisdiction
you need more information from me?
Dear Customer,no not at the moment , thank you
Is there a legal aid office in Germany to help with legal issues?
Dear Customer,no there is no special office but for poor citizens there is the possibility to free legal aid given by attorneys.For this you have to be in Germany , though
Thank you for your help. Your advice has been very helpful. I plan to use your services again in the future.
Thank you ever so much
