I'm a US citizen. My spouse has Hungarian citizenship (as well as US).
As such, I know I can apply for permanent residence in Germany.
Here's the hitch:
I want to go over first, to find us a place to live. Then I'd bring her and the kids over afterwards.
But all the information I find about applying calls it "family reunification" and reads as though the EU spouse has to already live in Germany before I apply.
Can I go over first and apply for permanent residence in Germany on the basis of my EU spouse, or does she actually have to be physically present in Germany first?
