Ask a German Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
thank you so much for using Just Answer.
thank you for your time, did you get my question?
Yes I did.
I am just thinking on how to answer it best
ok, can I give you some more info
Ties with Germany have to be viewed in their context.
I am a palestinian with labanese travel document (no state), married since more that 10 years to german spouse. we have 2 kids. we live in Dubai, UAE since we married. I have the A1 level certificate form Goethe institute for german language
i did not get what you mean in the context?
One part can be that you have a German spouse or German ancestors , the other part can be that you may own some real estate in Germany or have a flat there or have been living there for a few years .
The thing to be kept in mind is that normally in order to be naturalized you have to be a permanent resident in this country.
So being naturalized without permanent resodency is the excepation which may be granted under certain circumstances but which you are not entitled to.
yes but Section 14 of the "General discretionary naturalisation abroad" states that a foreigner who is ordinarily resident abroad may be naturalised subject to the other conditions of Sections 8 and 9 if ties with Germany exist which justify naturalisation" can this be applied?
of the (Staatsangehörigkeitsgesetz, StAG)
With context I mena it has to be regarded as a whole, all aspects considered.
So marriage is very good , so is Goethe Institut.
ok so aspects i should consider is been married to a german spouse as part one, then maybe buying a real estate?
Better would be if you had a flat in Germany, or would visit every year or so.
will this make me entitled for citizinship abroad?
Yeah buying would be good, if you
if it confirmed? as this is a big dicision for me? or do we have any other way?
is it confirmed? as this is a big dicision for me? or do we have any other way?
As I said there is no entitlement but the decisions are made according to Ermessen, which is all circumstances considered.
No you do not need to buy.
Like I said I would recommend visiting Germany, and so getting to know the country, perfecting your skills in German Language, all these are possible aspects.
I know the country as I have visited 3-4 times so far
i am really confused now.... to be entitled under article 14 of the Staatsangehörigkeitsgesetz, StAG? i.e. have the nationality from abroad, I should 1) be married, 2) speak german, 3)??
No, no there is no claim.
i did not get you
It is purely discretionary
There is to be equitable discretion
how we can make it a fact (from abroad)
Like I said above.
so if i visit germany more frequent then it will be ok? for how long?
But the final decision will always be dicretionary becuase that is waht Art 14 STAG is about.
if i want to apply for the natinality, will i need the services of a lawyer?
I would spend my holidays in Germany, traveling around getting to know the country better
No , but a lawyer is always better.
First you need to create the facts. The more the better.
Than you apply
what will be my chances now being stateless, married to german spouse with 2 kids, speaks A1 level german, visited the country for 3-4 times. would there be any chance?
and will you take the case and how much it will cost?
As of now I would consider your chances to be slim.
Remember that being naturalized and living abroad is the absolute exception
i know and this is why i need the service of laywer to make my chances better
Yes but you need more facts first.
if i open a company in germany? and run it form here?
The best lawyer can only be as successful as the facts the clients delivers
Yes, another possible argument
i can open a company in germany, have like consultancy service in UAE, pay taxex in germany
That is a difficult question I cannot answer without the exact details
if i try to apply with the current circustances (even my chanes are low) how much it will approx cost me if I hire your services?
This I cannot answer because it depends on how much work will be required on my side.
This is not predictable
i gave you all the feedback from my side, so why it can not be predicted?
Becuase the officials may comply right away and it is also possible that they may not and a year long court case lies ahead
so it is a chance that you may take to help me out as a lumpsum service. it might finish in one day or one year
Yes but there are many lawyers specialized in these cases.
It would be better to pick one of these
i thought you are one on them?
can you give me some contacts
Streifler & Kollegen
They are in Berlin
Their Mail is:
The address is: Oranienburgerstrasse 69
They are also multilingual
no specific persons?
No there is a whole law firm dedicated to immigration law
any other company?
They are the best
anyway ok thank you
If I have helped I would very much appreciate a laughing smilie so I get paid
