I have been working in Germany for the past 3 years. My wife is not working but she has a residence permit in Germany and a Blue card just like me. We are expecting a baby in January 2019. We are planing to go to India for delivery and she will come back along with the baby when the baby turns 6 months. I have the following questions.
- Will I get any parental leave (paid or unpaid) even if my wife is not working? If yes, how long?
- Will I get Elterngeld as everyone gets in Germany or is there any difference if the baby is born outside the EU?
