thank you for contacting the wefugees community!
My first idea, without knowing your case any better, is section 25b of the German residence Act.
Granting of residence in the case of lasting integration
(1) By way of derogation from Section 5 (1) no. 1 and (2), a foreigner whose deportation has been suspended should be granted a temporary residence permit if he has become Service provided by the Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protectionand the Federal Office of Justice ‒ www.gesetze-im-internet.dePage 44of 144lastingly integrated into the way of life in the Federal Republic of Germany. This shall generally presuppose that the foreigner 1.has resided in the federal territory for at least eight years or, in the event that he is living with a minor, unmarried child as a family unit, for at least six years without interruption by virtue of his deportation having been suspended, on the basis of permission to remain pending the asylum decision or by holding a temporary residence or permanent settlement permit, (...)" THERE ARE MANY MORE REQUIREMENTS!
(for all the requirements see this link:
You can check (with the help of a refugee advisor or a lawyer), if you meet all the requirements of this paragraph and then apply at the Ausländerbehörde for a residence permit. I suggest you make an appointment with a local advisor (of Red Cross, Caritas or who is nearest to where you live). He or she can help you find out what kind of residence permit you can get.
An Alternative is to download the "mbeon"-App and we'll discuss your case in detail via this app( It is free of charge and confidential). You'll find me (a red-cross-refugee counselor located in NRW) if you search for "Euskirchen".
I hope I could answer your question.
