Hello dear consultant and members, I have an urgent question regarding the residence permit application in Germany. I have expired stay permit from Italy(last of 2019). I was a student in Italy. Now I have a German kid from German mother. I have been here in Germany since the end of 2019. In between, I contacted ausländerbehörde many times with the application of my residence permit. With the assistance from one of the wefugess office, I summited a paper application by filling the form with all the necessary documents( vaterschaft anerkanung, saugerichet anerkanung, meldebecheinigung, geburtsurkunde,biometric photo, copy of passport and alike). But, finally after waiting several times, they send me a letter (anhoerung) stating I am illegal in Germany as a result of over stayed so I must leave Germany in a month. By the way, two days before I received the anhoerung latter there was a letter of appointment to bring them my original passport, photo, birth certificate and reason to stay in germany(reason for residence permit application), insurance coverage and bank statement. I am afreid of holding my original passport and return me back to my original country or Italy. What do you suggest me to do?
