C-permit for married couples

I wonder how it works when family with B-permit is eligible for C-permit after 5 years. For example, I read that when parents get C-permit, young children will get C-permit as well.

However, if only one of them speaks official language and the other parent doesn't have any language certificate (e.g. B1 Deutsch), can they have different permit status? (e.g. Dad is C-permit but Mom is B-permit) Will children stay in B-permit or C-permit in this situation? Or couples have to apply for C-permit at the same time?

Thanks!

Re: C-permit for married couples

This Zurich Migrationsamt document at the below link covers the requirements for an early issuance of a C permit based on successful integration. Among other requirements, Canton Zurich requires a B1 level of German. See section 5 "VORZEITIGE ERTEILUNG DER NIEDERLASSUNGS- BEWILLIGUNG AUF GRUND ERFOLGREICHER INTEGRATION".

It is possible for a spouse to not apply for an early C permit when the applying spouse does. However, the non-applying spouse needs to demonstrate an A1 level of German in order for the applying spouse to be considered. See 5.2, bullet 7 for more information:

Does your wife also have a A1 as Mullhollander mentioned in the thread?

In this case of EU/non-EU married couple, the non-EU has three ways to get C permit, whichever comes first.
1. The non-EU has automatic right to get C permit, 5 years after the EU gets C permit (note: NOT 5 years after marriage but 5 years from the moment when the EU gets C permit). This is according to LEtr article 43
2. The non-EU can apply for a C permit after 10 years in Switzerland. This is according to LEtr article 34, letter 2
3. The non-EU can apply for a C permit after 5 years in Switzerland in B permit, if he/she is well integrated. This is according to LEtr article 34, letter 4
