Here you can ask, answer and find questions surrounding the topic: arriving in Germany
Dear Sir Madam,
( I'm asking on behalf of my friend )

Her message : My name is Jojo, I Iive in Germany since 9/02/2020 as refugee and I was granted subsidiary protection.
Normally I was granted subsidiary protection when I was single then after I got married to Mr. Emma who was living in Netherlands under study permit because he was doing his master's degree there.
After marriage we applied for family reunion to German authorities which was not granted.

So, I look forward to ask you what happens on such cases and how my husband can join me ?

Among the reasons given by German authorities is that marriage took place after my asylum application and I'm not financially capable to secure the livings of me and for my husband.

Please advise me what to do and how to do it!

Regards,

Jojo

Dear @Malcolm, dear Jeannette, 

Thank you for your question. First of all, I would highly recommend you not to publish any private data (as names, contact details etc.) here. It is a public platform and in case you post data here, we are not able to protect them. You can still edit your text above and remove those details! Regarding your question: Yes, unfortunately, people with subsidiary protection can (currently) not benefit from a privileged family reunification (without being able to being independent from social benefits etc.) if they got married after the immigration. However, as your spouse graduated in the Netherlands - is he not able to get a working visa here? Did he try already? 

I will link two of our experts here. Dear @mbeon-fardeen or @mbeon-Christine, do you have more ideas how the couple can reunite in Germany? 

All the best, 

Meike
