Is there a possibility to get married without a passport (as a stateless person)? submitted by Monir in Legal advice

Hello sir/madam, I am sorry that, my English is not good. I need some information from you. I am an asylum seeker in Germany. And I don’t have any nationality. Because I am a state less. So I don’t have pessport any others country. My asylum application is not granted and I appeal it. My question is my girlfriend is a student in Germany. Her nationality is Bangladeshi. Now we want to marry here. Without passport can I marry her????

Thanks
Monir

Based on my personal experience, No.
Passport is your identity. Standesamt will require a birth certificate as well in addition to your passport.

Do you have any good soliution that, I can marry her which one will be accepted here? If possible please please help me. Thanks
Monir
What do you mean stateless? Everyone has an origin. You were born somewhere I believe. There is always a possibility to get an Identity document. It can be from your embassy or from Ausländerbehörde. A passport is a form of Identity.

There is no shortcut when it comes to marriage. You need to provide valid document. It‘s issually a long and complicated process. An easier solution (for residence matters) is to get a baby ! Talk to your partner.

I born in Bangladesh. But my origin is Pakistan (Bihari). Only for this region Bangladeshi government don’t give the passport. If you know about bihari of Bangladesh you will be clear. My girl friend is not European citizen. She is Bangladeshi. She came to Germany for study purpose. So baby is the solution???
Monir
Absolutely ! When a child us born here your stay can be atleast tolerated. You, your child and your girlfriend will be considered as a family. So you cannot be returned anywhere.

Hello, you told me if I take baby then I am safe. But my lawyer said that if you take baby it’s not consider for your asylum. Because your girlfriend is not a europian citizen. Now I am totally confuse. Which one is right!!!! Please tell me what can I do now. Thanks

Hello @Monir - it makes a difference whether you have a child with a European woman or a non-European. If you have a baby with a EU-citizen and you prove authorities that you want to take care of it, then you will be issued a residence permit (see here for example: wefugees.de/k/questions/2240). Having a baby with a non-EU citizen won’t grant you asylum automatically and it’s not going to be taken into consideration during your asylum procedure at BAMF. Your lawyer is right about that.

If a child is born in Germany, however, while at least one of the parents is still in the asylum procedure, then BAMF will start a separate asylum procedure for the newborn. Parents and children won’t be separated in this case. For example if the child receives a residence permit, while the parents get a negative result on their application, the parents will be allowed to stay in Germany and probably can apply for family reunion to get a residence permit. However, that would require to have a child before receiving a decision on your cases by BAMF. Best regards, Thorgen
