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 deadline for applying for such aid is one year from the date on which the offence took place. However, if the affected person is a victim of gender violence in accordance with article 23 of Organic Law 1/2004 or a victim of sexual violence in accordance with article 37 of Organic Law 10/2022, the deadline will be extended to five years. However, said period is interrupted by the beginning of criminal proceedings and starts again when the final legal resolution is handed down.
