  1. Duel Citizenship and Deedpoll

    How do I move the topic to Legal? :)
  2. Duel Citizenship and Deedpoll

    Im hoping someone can help me with the legal side Deedpoll in Germany. ( I know its not accepted here) Years ago I added a vorname by Deedpoll in UK, so my birthname on my  British passport is written as my middlename,My birth certificate only shows my birthname (now middlename) Ive applied for Duel Einbürgerung, and they just need a few more things, one being My birth certificate legally translated. Name change by Deedpoll isnt accepted in Germany. Im so worried! Do I just get my birth certificate legally translated or deedpoll too. Deedpoll isnt accepted here though its confusing!              
  3. Ahh I've just googled erweiterte Meldebescheinigung as I only had the updated einfach one.Luckily she said that they can sort it out there. I was surprised when she asked for the Aufenthaltserlaubnis Im sure I still have it. She just said not to worry and to take it for the Einbürgerung. I wonder if she meant after the  31.01??? that I I'll need one?? Im going start looking for it in a minute    
  4.  Oh wow! thats what I was worried about last night, writing  in ink!! Which is exactly what I quickly did last night! I didnt to  put any details of my parents, just my address schooling, ausbildung and of some work dates.written on a piece pink paper! Cos didnt have any white paper! I have nothing to hide but in the beginning lived off little savings and just felt like on holiday here,till 1999. I'm just back from the interview. Application form is handed in. What failed is My British Birth certificate needs to be translated into German and stempelt,how mads that then;-) I need also need to fone them as soon as I have an appointment for the Einbürgerungstest and B1, ASAP. (So need to start studying the 300 questions. I also cant do the german die das dem and Im not so good with Grammer or writing. I also need to find that Aufenthaltserlaubnis. She said it will be ok because I applied before the Brexit day. But still a little more to do! I'm not going to stress though:(
  5. I have no idea where to begin with the lebenslauf. When I first came here I just got by, by living off savings/or occasinal zeitarbeit firma. My First proper employment was in 1999? Is it ok to start the lebenslauf when in germany from 1999?
  6. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

    I have an appointment in the Landratsamt on the 27 January. With this application form.Very last minute!!  :-) 
  7. Thats exactly my problem! Years ago changed my surname by Deedpoll but kept my birth surname as my middle name . (Both names are on my passport and legal documents except my bloomen UK Driving Licence ( I had forgot about that) At 16:00 today I am due to go to the Landratsamt, I have my UK passport, Meldebescheinigung, photos, and the old paper UK driving licence address on it is still okish cos my family still lives there. I will also take along the Deedpoll paper. I am mega panicking now they wont accept it! Who actually checks it the British Consulate? It has to be changed before Brexit date oct 31 2019  
  8. UK Deed Poll Requirements

    I am in the procedure of changing my UK driving licence (the old paper licence)to a DE one.I am paniking cos I need to get it changed before the Brexit deadline!! Oct 31st Im due to go tomorrow with all the paperwork. Now here is the next panik/problem,I changed my first name by deedpoll years ago, keeping my birth name as middle name,Which shows on my GB passport. But my driving licence only shows middle name (birth name) I didnt realise at the time I should have also imformed the Driving Licence officials about my name  being changed.( stupidity I know:(  The question is will they see my middle name the same as on my driving licence and birth certificate and overlook it? I cant believe I am asking this, thankyou for any helpfull replies!
  9. Car Insurance

    I ve left things till the very last minute as usual My car Insurance (amongst other things) is with Allianz and Ive been told by many a German how "Sehr Teuer Allianz sind " Now thinking of a last minute change... Been looking online and from what I can make out (as its in German) seems to be 200 euros cheaper in year.also looked at one called Ladycaronline ..which also seems alot cheaper.(are they any good though?) looks about the same as Allianz. Anyone know any other cheaper car insurances ?? also is it possible to change it all online??? One more thing..I have a yearly contract with Allianz and if I dont go through with changing my car insurance, is it possible to change the season to half yearly? meaning can I Kundigung at the six month stage rather than yearly stage? anyone? oh god one more thing cars now over the 12000 km in year tariff ...I tried reading the small printed German documents of Allianz last night.. did I read it correctly that I have to tell them this otherwise the`ll automatically change my tariff to 27000km in year??
