Hello @Sandy

Nice to hear from you again.

The law you are looking for is Aufenthaltsgesetz (AufenthG) §12a ( It says that Wohnsitzauflage has to be removed if you start a job that is subject to social insurance contribution. You have to work at least 15 hours a week and earn a minimum of 710€. You have to go to Ausländerbehörde and show them your work contract in order to prove that you started such a job.

Ausländerbehörde also has to remove it if you start studying or if you start an Ausbildung.

Best regards,
