Hello Pan123,

thank you aga for sharining you your question in the community. As for me, I can give you the following answers:

1. The processing time for redistribution requests can take up to several months, depending on the number of requests.

2.He has good chances on the ground of family reunion to the underage child. It is regulated in the law.

3. It depends on his status in Germany. If he have already worked and has asylum or Aufenthaltstitel, he can maybe turn to the Jobcenter and apply for securing livelihood, that means to get state support. He has to search a job alone.
