The Nationality Act is a federal law and thus applies to all states. One of the main conditions is that you have an unrestricted residence permit which is generally issued after 5 years the full time as a student does not count to recieve this since the student residence permit is not issued with the intention of a long term residence only 50% of this time ...

No, this is not the case. Germany will not consider you stateless. In certain circumstances, Germany will tolerate dual citizenship upon nationalization. Some countries don't allow a renunciation at all. Some countries make it very difficult. For 2nd, 3rd generation Turks, court rulings have allowed such exceptions (Military service deemed unreasonable): ...

As @phoog stated, a change in format does not matter as long as the certificate contains the required information, and is genuine. The only exception I've heard of is Puerto Rico birth certificates issued before July 1, 2010; Puerto Rico has required replacement of these due to security lapses with the older certificate. Over the years states have offered ...

And If I understand correctly, my German permenet residence card's maximum validity is the same as my passport. Note: the card will become invalid, your permanent residence status continues. Should I inform the Auslanderbehörde beforehand? You should definitely inform the responsible Ausländerbehörde before the passport expires. That is because males can'...

The passport that you give to them to issue the visa on does not have to be the same passport number as on the petition. (In fact, I don't think you are even required to have a passport at the time of the petition.) The visa cannot be issued on an expired passport. It can only be issued on a valid passport. However, a visa that is issued on a valid passport ...

I don't think there is any easy way to look that up online. All online forms require you to specify where you are registered and provide your consular registration number (NUMIC). If you don't have one, you have to contact the consulate where you might be registered to recover it. But if you never got one, you probably never registered. If you decide to ...

You can apply as soon as you qualify, you do not have to wait for anybody. Your wife wouldn't automatically qualify because you do and consequently wouldn't become French immediately. She will have to wait to qualify herself. By contrast, your children could become French as soon as you do (that's called effect collectif). It's not necessary for them to wait ...

The requirement is that the passport needs to be valid until 6 months after the date of departure (or, for passports from countries in the 6-month club, the passport needs to be valid until the date of departure). The actual effect of this requirement is that: If your passport is not from a country in the 6-month club, your passport must be valid for at ...

If you were really British citizen "by naturalization", then you are a British citizen otherwise than by descent, which means that (since you are the father and your daughter was born in wedlock) your child born abroad was automatically British citizen at birth (technically, at the time it was called Citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonnies (...

Birth certificate format is determined by state (or territory) law, so there are more than 50 formats at any one time. If any state or territory changes its format every ten years, or on any other schedule, it is to combat fraud. The important factor is whether the format is correct given the purported date of issue, not whether it is the same format that ...

We've just went through a name-change (before acquiring British citizenship) with the help of the Hungarian Consulate in Edinburgh. (It's a much smaller establishment than the London one so you might get a better more personalized support) You need a deed poll, and a couple documents showing your new name. We have provided a driving licence, a debit card ...
