  1. Salary per month for family

    @Konstanz yes, that's the only thing I can do so will just keep researching. Not in a hurry to be honest as well. Where ever faith takes you!   Thanks everyone.

    Nope, not saying that, i just found the previous answer of "bring your children into poverty" a bit silly. :)

  5. Salary per month for family

    Guys, come one, I see what you mean. I live in a 100+ sq m condo in the states now so I know how big it is and what i'm getting in to. The reunification visa would be for my wife and kids based upon my success in Germany.
  6. Salary per month for family

    No, she's not a German citizen. The family member is offering a job nothing else. Which is why I mentioned I'd go first so that way even if it doesn't work out, we didn't sell everything here in the states. 
  7. Salary per month for family

    Yes, my wife will definitely be working as soon as she arrives with the kids (her German is also good) so I do not forsee problems for employment for her. Only issues we're having is trying to figure out is..if i go alone and get the pay I mentioned will they or will they not approve the family reunification visas for the wife and kids..that's the dilema.   ALso, we know Munich is really expensive and believe me if we could avoid it we would, but most of her family is around that place and the job offer I;'d getting her family member is located around Munich so at this point no choice. Maybe if everything works out down the line we move out of Bavaria completely.   For the 100sq m apartment, I thought legally it was around 12sq m for each person so four people 48? so round to 50sqm..

    Do you have a link for this caculator and also would the governemnt take into consideration the kindergeld or that's separate regardless of how much one makes?   By the way, the plan is to have my wife work as well as we are fully aware with me just working is not enough. I see what you're saying and we are definitely not trying to go on welfare, not the plan.

    One is a baby the other is 5.   What is HartzIV Recher, lawyer?
  10. Salary per month for family

    The job is located southeast of Munich it's construction. Not directly in Munich but im sure most of the time I'll be working in or around Munich and suburbs.   So really I'd be living minimum one hour away.   Like I said i'm just confused about how much money i need to legally make in order to bring over my family.
  11. Good day everyone!   I read lots of posts on here and just need a bit more guidance.   Long story short, I have a family of four (that's including me) so wife and two kids. We all live in the states and are citizens. We want to move to Germany. I might have a potential job offer from a family member and they are offering to pay 2,000euro/month GROSS.    With that being said, I have read that for a family of four you would have to receive NETTO 1,900-2,200 to get a family reunification visa granted. Is this true? I would really like a link that is official that has some sort of information on this and or some table that shows these figures.   Also, I will have more than enough money on savings to cover all of our expenses for a few months so does that help? Finally, does anybody know what is the timeline to process family reunification visa for citizens from the states? Does one first have to wait and get six pay stubs and the apply or does this not matter as long as you have the money and place to bring them?   I'd really appreciate the help!!
