a.merkel :

Dear Customer,

a.merkel :

In such a case, a regular naturalization procedure must be run. That is, apply to the same conditions as for anyone else who applied for German citizenship.

a.merkel :

You have 8 years of uninterrupted live in Germany, you have mastered the German language in speech and writing, you and your family members can cover your living expenses from their own resources, you may have to give up your previous citizenship and you are in possession of a settlement permit and so far have not made punishable.

a.merkel :

Adoption:

a.merkel :

responsible is the Family Court. there is to make the request. required documents are written, notarized applications or notarized consent forms by the following persons:

person accepting
adopted person
Spouse / the adopter
Spouse / the adoptee
for this you will also need an apostille, so official translation. The accepting people must be of age and the adoption must be morally justified.

a.merkel :

This is when a parent-child relationship already existed. However, this is not available when a foreign person to be protected from deportation. Whether the adoption is morally justified, checks the Family Court.

a.merkel :

I am here to help you and I ONLY get paid if you rate me positively AFTER I answer you. So believe me, I will work hard for you to rate me well and bonuses are appreciated. Thank you!


 


Best regards,

Customer:

but can a single man or women adopt an adult (over 18)

and you told me the adoption need to be justified , if the reason is that she loves me and she wants me as her son ,(note that i lived with her for 2 months before) would it be suffisent ?

and if the adoption has been accepted do i have to live with her ?

Customer:

please note that father is died

Customer:

i mean my father is died

a.merkel :

and you told me the adoption need to be justified , if the reason is that she loves me and she wants me as her son ,(note that i lived with her for 2 months before) would it be suffisent ?: this is difficult and as a reason for adoption rather immoral, because a partnership relationship between adults is something other than an adoption between adults. You would need to demonstrate that your relationship is already long as mother-child relationship and not as a pair.

Customer:

i mean she loves me as a son , because i lived with her while i was on a study program ,she was my hostfamily ,and i have no father

a.merkel :

than its like a mother-son relationship.

Customer:

yea , so is that a sufficient reason ?

a.merkel :

have you got any further questions ?

a.merkel :

If not I would very much appreciate getting positive feedback


Thank you

Customer:

you havent answer me !

a.merkel :

?

Customer:

i have asked if my adoption would be accepted if the reason is that she loves me as her son

Customer:

?

a.merkel :

Yes that is a recognized adoption reason.

Customer:

and please provide me with full information about where to apply and the required documents

Customer:

and do i have to live with her after adoption or is it ok to live alone ?

a.merkel :

Please read the given answers!

a.merkel :

Adoption:

for this you will also need an apostille, so official translation. The accepting people must be of age and the adoption must be morally justified.



a.merkel :

Customer:

a.merkel :

Yes. But the Homecountry will not accept.

Customer:

yes his home country will not accept it , but would germany accept it , as germany asks for


Certificates of no impediment

Customer:

and his home country will not give him this paper for same-sex marriage , can he marry in germany without this paper

Customer:

Customer:

oh ok ,

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

he's studying in germany with a visa and his partner is coming from spain to marry him in germany ,so ?

So they will live in europa after the marriage.

Has the German authority suspects that here a marriage for a residence permit is made. Since a residence permit for the EU and the Member States will only be granted if he or his spouse have sufficient income so this will be checked at the request of marriage.

This incomeproof is normal.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago

he already has a resident permit in germany and the other guy is spanish ! ??? ???

and the last question , after adoption will i get permanent resident and work permit or a resident permit ? ?????

1. Yes, but a residence permit for study and not to live permanently with his husband in Europe and obtain a work permit. Student visas and residence permits for spouses are different and have unterscheidliche conditions. Therefore, the examination of income.

2. No.
An adult adoption does not constitute a right of residence or permit work. This decision was the highest court, the Federal Constitutional Court, judgment of 8 April 1989 (2BvR 1169/84).
