Hello I am a refugee from Gambia and I am right now on the process of getting married with my girlfriend, and 2 days ago we submitted all our required documents to the Standestamt including my home passport. And they made a copy and return it back to me and said that I have to take the passport with my ausweis to my Auslanderberhold to check the passport and to change something from my ausweis so I have been there today and they collected my passport and give me a certified copy of it and said let me wait them until when they finish checking it all and after they would send me the letter. So my question is what else should I do from the Standesamt?And what does that means by the Auslanderberhold?
welcome to our community!
First of all, you have to be patient. German bureaucracy usually takes some time to get its work done. Since you just handed in the documents a few days ago, it is totally normal that you have not received an answer yet.
If the Standesamt did not tell you to do anything else besides bringing your documents to the Ausländerbehörde, then you just have to wait. The Ausländerbehörde will refer back to you as soon as there is news concerning your case. Beyond that, I can only speculate since I don't know what exactly the Ausländerbehörde needs to check/change.
As far as I can see everything should be fine. Or am I missing the point here? Feel free to ask further questions if anything remained unclear or if I misunderstood the question.
