Hey there, Thank you for this great platform and giving guidance in the jungle of law and bureaucracy.
I want to marry my boyfriend. He is from syria, he has a passport and a birth certificate, but he is staying in turkey. He doesn't have a residence permit and also didn't apply for it yet. So his situation is very risky, we hope he doesnt get controlled. He wants to make a residence permit there. I am wondering if this long and expensive procedure is the best way. He can not really travel to germany, in order to just get married here and apply for residency here. But maybe another european country, like bulgaria, would be better than to stay in turkey?
I know I could just go to turkey and we get married there, but is it possible if he is illegally there? And are there difficulties to consider to get the marriage approved in germany and also what papers would we need to bring him to germany after?
Im just really confused what is a good way to solve the situation and what steps to take to get him into a "legal" state of being and of course to get married.
Any information is much appreciated.
Thanks and warm regards
