I was illegal and I have posted before about it in my other post. My German woman put to birth February and it was stressful to do the vaterschaft and all but I have done the vaterschaft and right to the child(custody) and birth certificate of the child .. everything and my lawyer has fought for my file to be transfer from Bayern to NordRhein westfallen though they stress my lawyer but finally , they transfer it to my woman state ..but before I do the vaterschaft at Jugendamt, the lady at Jugendamt said, ausländerbehorde told her that we should do a DNA test before she will do it for us ..we did it and it was positive ,we have done all as I mentioned early in this post . The ausländerbehorde will give me duldung next month . After the Duldung , my lawyer will apply for permit ... I want to know if it's possible that they will grant me stay despite that I was illegal before ? Or they will ask me to go back to Nigeria and come back with family reunion visa? What do you think ?
