Will adopting my swiss orphaned nephews let me get a B residence Permit?

Hi everybody, 3 years ago my 2 nephews lost both of their parents (my sister and her husband) after a long cancer battle. My sister, before her death, asked me to adopt them, so i kept them with me for the last three years but i didnt legally adopt them (no any papers thing). They are still under the states protection but they live with me.

Now my wife and I have F permit (temporary residence permit for refugees) and I'm thinking to legally adopt my nephews. Will that help me get a B residence permit?

What you've done is commendable, but I'm sorry to say that as a stand-alone thread title, it reads a bit mercenary, in my opinion.

Yeah - but still sounds way better than "Will I lose my permit if my Swiss husband suddenly dies of an accident?"
;-)

Could be? Depends on the nationality of the nephews and how important the local authorities believe in family ties

I know of cases where a parent with B certificate got a C permit for a daughter who had never visited here.
