My husband and i got married in Cyprus (civil marriage) on my marriage certificate it say.Husband: Lebanese (states his passport number)Wife: German Passprot/Lebanese ID. I wanted to just use my German passport however due to the new passport system (number & letters) the computer in cyprus wouldnt take my passport number. As a result the clerk there had to write on the marriage certificate. German passport, lebanese ID (and put down my lebanese id number)I would like to now register my marriage in the German Embassy. As i am now pregnant and want my child to have the nationality.However, i am afraid i will face legal complications to the German/Lebanese nationality written on my marriage certificate.Can you please advise. I would be more than happy to consult with you directly through your office and send you a copy of my marriage certificate.
But that would mean two things. In Germany I will have a child without a registered father. Moreover I won't be able to have my husbands last name on my passport. As a result I would like to from now register my marriage with the German authorities. Given the situation listed above would it be possible.
Dear Customer,yes you are absolutely rightYou better conatct the German embassy to enquire how your marriage cna be acknowledged in Germany
Dear Claudia,I cant contact the embassy because they might come and tell me why does your marriage certificate show that you are Lebanese/German. Moreover i might get in trouble for using my Lebanese ID as an reference for an official document outside Lebanon. I please need legal council on this matter. If you dont mind can i contact you directly as this is a personal matter i dont want to discuss details over a forum
Yes of course
Dear ClaudiaI am still waiting for your reply. I sent you a follow email last week to your question.
Dear Customer,please turn to the German Embassy in the country where you live.I cannot do anything for you because as I am in Germany I am too far away to be of any help
