Franciscan Chapel Church (FCC) and Jesuit Social Center (JSC) collaboration for free legal consultation for foreigners includes visa and official status, international marriage and other legal issues concerning foreigners.

Fr. Ando Isamu and Jessie Tayama from the Jesuit Social Center, located by St. Ignatius Church of Yotsuya, will come to the Franciscan Chapel Church on the 1st Sunday of the month, from 11:00am to 3:00pm. There will be another 3 months trial: October 7th, November 4th and December 2nd, 2012.

They will conduct first an interview with the applicants at FCC, before the applicant gets to see the lawyer at JSC, on every 4th Monday of the month, from 1pm to 4pm. Each applicant is given 30 minutes to consult the lawyer, free of charge.

The purpose for conducting the interview with the applicants at FCC is:
(1) To summary and focus the case. A copy of the statement that Jessie takes down during the interview will be given to the lawyer.

(2) After interviewing the applicant Fr. Ando and Jessie will know whether the applicant needs to seek legal consultation or not or maybe is more suitable to refer the applicant to another source.

For the interview the applicant is required to bring along: alien card, passport and other relevant private documents as there is a need to check them and to confirm the applicant status.

Hoping that this is a helpful service,
Ando Isamu SJ, Head of Migrant Desk (Jesuit Social center)
