  3. Things to ponder

    WORLD CUP NEWS. Qatar out. Tunisia out. Iran out. Saudi Arabia out. At this rate ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... England will be the only Muslim country left in the tournament.

  5. Good lord. Really?   Some threads just beg to be closed.
  6. I woke up blind in one eye this morning

    Maybe the computer misbehaved? Anyway, all the best John. Having eye issues is scary. But England won! Sorry about Wales, though...
  7. What made you smile today?

    Cat burglar?
  8. Where to buy a haggis in Munich

    Get a meat wolf and make your own haggis. Easy enough.
  9. I got some support by other fellow freelancers and searched about how to fill out it but as you said it gets complicated with such special conditions like Vereine, no valid VAT ID, etc. and yes! I should have consulted with a "professional".    I'll dig into the relevant gesetze you've shared. Thank you very much, I appreciate your help!

  11. Brands of fully automatic coffee machines

    Ideas on a good coffee machine for ground coffee/beans?  Thinking about making such an investment.  
  12. What about setting up as a GmbH? Then you can work for whoever you want, as much as you want, without worrying about Scheinselbstständigkeit.
  13. Additional health insurance during pregnancy

    Tk pay only for 3 Ultrasounds. The rest are totally depend on your Op/gyn. For me she always charged me for the additional ultrasound if I ask for. So basically if I don't pay I won't be aware of the baby's health and growth. In addition while I do not have cat and I only one time visit a family who had a cat and I even did not touch it she asks for toxoplasmosis test every 8 weeks and I have to pay out of pocket. Unfortunately changing doctor in the middle of pregnancy is another catastrophe in Germany because basically all doctors refuse to accept you with the excuse that their patient list are full. At least it was what I have experienced. 
  14. What's got you flummoxed today?

    That Rishi Sunak, Elon Musk and King Charles III are nominees for Time magazine's "Person of the Year" award.
  15. Hi!   In 2 weeks, my wife and I have an appointment for our newborn baby's first Aufenthaltstitel (since neither of us is German). We both have valid residence permits (mine being NE) and all 3 of us have valid passports.   2 questions: 1) Will we be able to travel outside EU/Germany right after the interview/appointment (not literally, but like few days after)? I.e. will our kid receive a paper that serves (for a limited time at least) as a proof that it has a valid residency in Germany, in case the officers ask on the way back ? Normally, we got it on several occasions when we needed to apply/extend our own permits, and they were usually valid for almost 3 months.   2) Will the baby get NE as well (since I have it), or both parents have to have it ? I.e. she receives the temporary permit instead.    Thanks in advance !

  20. We went there today, and the lady who processed our application was so kind and pleasant. She just asked if we had read all the documents and understood them and had any questions. I also missed the chance to give my perfect elevator pitch, like what we do to land a job at an interview! 
  21. Terminating Blue Card

    I'm on a Blue Card since 2012, and I will leave Germany permanently. Is there an official procedure that I have to follow in order to terminate my Blue Card permit, or just an email to Ausländerbehörde Berlin letting them know would suffice?  
  22. Employee rights after termination of job due to store closings

    I think you need to file within three weeks if you want to file for unlawful termination.    As @mako1 mentione, the employment courts usually have a Rechtsantragsstelle where you can talk to an employee of the court which will help you navigate the whole process. They do not give legal advice. The location of the employer determines which Arbeitsgericht is responsible.  They have forms which you can fill out to file a case which you then submit to the court. Everyone pays for their own counsel in the first round, as this prevents employees from getting stuck with huge bills for corporate lawyers.
