Aid to victims

Law 35/1995, of 11 December, establishes a public aid system in favour of direct or indirect victims of frauds and violence committed in Spain resulting in death or serious injuries or serious injury to physical or mental health. Similarly, aids for direct victims of offences against offences against sexual freedom even when they are committed without violence.

The term for requesting such aid is one year, counted from the date on which the criminal activity occurred, except in the event that the victim is a victim of gender-based violence in accordance with article 23 of Organic Law 1/2004, in which case the term shall be three years. However, said period is interrupted by the beginning of criminal proceedings and starts again when the final legal resolution is handed down.
