Good day, I'm a asylum seeker in Berlin Germany and my asylum procedure is still on going and at the moment I have not been rejected.

which means I am still with a normal six month renewable document. and I have been also working for 4 years now

and I just got married to a German citizen, please how can I apply for my visa without stoping from working

because I'm afraid to loss my employment in the case of changing my resident status. because people said I need to close my asylum procedure before applying for a new visa and if I have to close my asylum procedure that means I will have the permission to work anymore.

please in this situation what advice can I get?

Dear @Taku,

thank you for sharing your question with the Wefugees Community.

Before closing your asylum process, please consult about it a lawyer or an asylum procedure counseling office, such as Flüchtlingsrat, Caritas or Proasy in the city, where you live. Because when you want to change your purpose of residence in Germany from asylum to a residence permit based on your marriage, the Foreigners Office (Ausländerbehörde) usually asks you to leave Germany and then apply for the German visa from your home country. They actually ask you to go to your country of origin, then apply for family reunification visa. If you do this with the help of a lawyer or an asylum procedure counseling office, you have a better chance to change it without leaving Germany. Maybe they can also help you not lose your job, while changing your purpose of stay and your residence status in Germany.

I hope, you have got your answer. I am a MBEON consultant. If you wish to contact me directly, you can see my profile and follow the instructions there.

Best wishes
