So I want to marry my German girlfriend sometime in the not too distant future. But it seems the authorities here don't recognise my divorce!?
Heres the background. I was married in New Zealand around 17yrs ago, and divorced in Australia around 10yrs ago. Apparently I need some kind of recognition from New Zealand that I am divorced. This doesn't really make a lot of sense to me.
Has anyone had to go through this, and have any pointers of what it actually entails?
We moved to a town close to Oldenburg from South Africa quite recently and are looking for other families who are also English speaking. We have a 3 year old son and a 9 months old baby boy.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
My son is almost 3 months old and I have a couple of questions
1. In the next couple of months, I would like to take him to an English speaking play group. Does anyone know any English speaking play groups south of Munich, ideally in Miesbach, Holzkirchen, Bad Tölz or Wolfratshausen? I searched a lot online and everything that is still operating appears to be central Munich.
2. Does anyone know any bi-lingual nurseries around the areas above? (for when he is older than 1 year)
My wife is German, so our son grows up in a bi-lingual household, but it is important for me that he also learns to play with other kids in English. Our neighbours are German so there will is a balance of both English and German play time.
