Re: Family Reunification

4. Yes, my family is in such a situation. No, having one permit depend on another is strictly worse that two independent ones. An independent L/B permit can be converted to a dependent one should one of you lose a job, but not vice versa; also a dependent permit cannot be made primary in case the primary holder loses it.
Thank you for your reply. And in your case, both were married and then each one got their own permit?

5. Yes, sure, it's always better to have more options than less.
Not sure, but probably you have a different case, but from the law point of view, is it legal to be married and apply for another primary permit? Is there a chance that the authorities will decline it because one can get the right of residence and work from the spouse?
