Dear Customer,

legal eagle :

thanl you for using Just Answer.

Do you want German citizenship?

legal eagle :

You are entitled to German citizenship if at the time of your birth either your mother or your father were of German nationality

legal eagle :

If this is not the case the only possibilty for you is to be naturlized

Customer :

Can you explain more please ?

legal eagle :

When you were born was your mther a German national?

Customer :

no,, I was born in Dhahran,, My mom was Jordanian,, and still

Customer :

but now about my mom,, her whole family are Germans,, so is there a possibility to have the German nationality ?? she lived there for 18 years

legal eagle :

Ok then you cannot become a German national by birth but you have to be naturalized which means you have to become a German national.

legal eagle :

For this you hav to be living in Germany or else have ties to Germany

Customer :

yeah, my mom lived there for 18 years.. and I'm moving to germany next year for university and i'll stay there for like 7 years
is that possible?

legal eagle :

Yes if you stay that long it is possible

legal eagle :

But you have to learn German and know about German history

Customer :

i already speak german but i'll make extra courses for that

legal eagle :

Ok

Customer :

its my secound language though

Customer :

but about my mother

legal eagle :

Ok

legal eagle :

No way alas.

legal eagle :

She would habe to be German at the time you were born

Customer :

she has been living there for so long and her family are all german,, is it possible after all that time to take the nationality

Customer :

?

legal eagle :

Normally she has to live there as well

legal eagle :

There are however exceptions

Customer :

and what are the exceptions ?

legal eagle :

If she has ties to Germany

legal eagle :

The law is Art 14 Staatsangehörigkeitsgesetz

Customer :

So now let us say my mom coulsn't have it,,, if i have ties to germany as you say and went there to study for like 7 years,, i can have it without my parents,, depending on that my grandparents are ?
