I am a non EU citizen and would like to apply for citizenship for me and my family in Germany. Do the requirements like B1 language level for naturalization also apply to your spouse and children? If the main applicant can apply citizenship in 6 years due to being able to speak the language fluently (C1 Level), does that mean the spouse and children can apply in 6 years as well together with the main applicant, even without the same language level (not even B1)?
I read this on the government website:
Section 10, para. 2 of the Nationality Act Spouses who are not yet eligible for naturalization and minor children may apply for naturalization along with their eligible spouse or parent, which gives families of foreigners the possibility of acquiring German citizenship together.
