I've got a complicated question, but I'll try anyway - I've been living in Germany for over 6 years; been married to a german woman for over 7 years. We have a daughter of over 8 years. We live in the east, old DDR, and I haven't been able to find work. I got a aufenthaltstitel in 2012 when I first arrived and having no job (Still looking), meant I just kept renewing. Now my wife's got a good paying job, which means I'm sorta kindda kicked out of social, I think. Now we're having problems, probably end in a seperation, as now I'm thinking of moving to the west to find work. How would it affect my aufenthaltstitel, which is to expire next year? To recap, my child is german, my wife (soon-to-be Ex) is german, I am not; how will it affect me after the seperation?
