Pardon me for opening a new thread for an already existing topic. I have read many related questions and answers, but I still feel that my case could be slightly different. Please refer me, if possible, to where I can get answers to my question. I am aware that nationality also plays a vital role in legal issues and paper works.
So, I became a father 7 months ago and together with my German girlfriend, we have obtained the following papers:
1. German Birth certificate and passport for our son
2. Joint custody (Garde partagé)
3. Paternity recognition
I am in possession of a French temporal resident permit. With this paper, I can enter and stay in Germany for not more than 90 days. However, I CAN’T work or conduct any income generating activities on the territory to carter for our needs since the social benefits is insufficient. I would like to fully participate in bringing up our son on daily basis. we are not married yet.
What are the odds that my family reunion visa and work permit request could be granted at the immigration office in Cologne, without me going to France, to apply for from there? Because I am here now.
Besides, I have checked already with the German embassy in Paris. There are no free appointment dates until next year. Time is passing and as he grows older, so too are his needs.
I welcome your suggestions, tips and any relevant information that could help me navigate through this as soon as possible.
