I want to also clarify that I have been living here for 2 years with a German citizen, if I get married to him will I still need to apply for a resident permit?
If I don't get one even if I'm not married, can I get deported?

The internet has been giving me mixed messages about the need for a residence permit as an EU citizen

Dear @Jane_460,

Welcome to the Wefugees Community and thank you for your question.

As an EU citizen, you enjoy the freedom of movement within the EU. You don't need a residence permit to live in Germany (and anyway only after three months of stay) if you are an employee, self-employed, seeking a job (for a certain period) or you are married, for instance, to a German or an EU citizen who fulfills the respective requirements. You are also entitled to social support (money from the Jobcenter/Arbeitslosengeld 2 etc.) e.g. when you are working (even Minijob) or you meet one of the other requirements.

I hope this helps and please don't hesitate to get back to us with any further questions.

All the best,
