Here you can ask, answer and find questions surrounding the topic: arriving in Germany
Hi ,

first of all I wanna thanks to the all members and specially Meike who answered me last time it was so helpful thanks a million for that :)

Me(non Eu) and my wife(Eu citizen)decided to separated after four years of marriage , we lived two years in Ireland and now it’s been two years in Germany my wife is moving back to her country forever and I have 5 years spouse visa (member of union citizen)  so do I have to inform to local immigration authorities about this ?? If yes will they give me a new resident permit or I can continue with my current resident card ??

Also I would like to know that is it important for me that she must have worked for these past two years or melding is enough ?? We never took any social benefit I was working but she didn’t work for these past two years  

And lastly if we ended up getting divorced can I apply for permanent resident card after five years of marriage route or I have to spend 8 years in total in order to gain permanent resident card ?

Looking forward for your feedback

Thanks :)

Hello Parthi dharan,

you can stay in Germany when:-

- the marriage or civil partnership has existed for at least three years, up to at least one year in Germany, before the judicial divorce or annulment proceedings are initiated

and

when you have a job here or you are searching for one.

The family members generally retain their status, which is expressed in the residence card.

If you yourself have the status of a citizen of the Union with the right to free movement, then you acquire the right of permanent residence after 5 years.
