  1. Hello, I went through the posts on this forum and figured out that even as a German citizen (which I am not, at the moment), I would find it very difficult  to invite my non-EU elderly parents to stay with me, since they would not be eligible for a residence permit (even if I could get them the basis tariff for health insurance: approx 700 Euros per month ?).   I am not sure if this is a good place to ask, but is there another EU country with similar quality of life (and job opportunities) to Germany (like the  Netherlands or France) where bringing parents over would be easier ? My parents have a fair amount of financial resources (let us say between 100K and 1 million Euros) and I should be able to find employment without too much difficulty..    Thanks !!
  2. Hi Toytown folks, My wife and I (both from Turkey) have been resident in Germany with a residence title for more than 5 years. Currently, we are living in Stuttgart, and both have a fixed-term employment contract since we are working at universities in temporary projects. The contract of my wife will terminate on August 31, and she would like to apply for Niederlassungserlaubnis or Daueraufenthalt EU. Briefly, after finishing her Master’s degree in Germany, she has worked (in a job that relates to her studies) and paid into the federal pension fund for 2 years (and 3 months), and she has a B2 certificate. Unfortunately, she could not find a job here so far. Do you happen to know? What is the minimum contract duration and salary needed to obtain "Niederlassungserlaubnis" in her situation? Or can she apply directly even before finding a job, considering my earning (living together)? In case she cannot find a job by the end of this month, she can obtain spouse residence permit (I have a permit until 2021). But in this case, her residence permit status will also change (from “18 ABS 4 s1” to “spouse”). Do you happen to know, can she still keep her right to apply "directly" for Niederlassungserlaubnis after finding a job? She has also received a job offer from the Netherlands (for 1 year). If she starts working there, can she still keep her right to apply "directly" for Niederlassungserlaubnis after finding a job in Germany? Finally, in case she is currently eligible to apply and we couldn't find an appointment for Niederlassungserlaubnis (Stuttgart is very busy), can she apply for a Fiktionsbescheinigung (in the meantime) and hand in her "Niederlassungserlaubnis" application later? This has become really important part of our life. Thus, I would greatly appreciate your answers. Thanks a lot! Best, Kaan
  3. So I've been in germany now for three years. I've worked full time at two different international schools, one for one year and the other for two years. Quite soon my contract will finish and i have been unsuccessful at getting another. I have three questions:   1. I have had a residence card/sticker that was dependent on my job. Will i be allowed to stay for a longer period whilst i look for another job? 2. I have applied for ALG1 (online), am i likely to get it? i was hoping to use the time on ALG1 to boost my german language skills by completing intensive courses, will that be allowed or dare i say it paid for? 3. I do have a joint bachelor degree in Education and Mathematical Sciences from Australia and am a registered fully qualified teacher there, what is the anerkennung process like? and am i likely to be able to complete it without and more study or observations?   My girlfriend is a teacher here, having finished her referendariat and nearly her finished herprobezeit, so i dont really want to be forced back out of the country.   What are my options?
