Re: C Permit in case of separation/divorce

I would like to kick off the process to get citizenship, but not sure how a separation or divorce would impact that. Iím assuming that the fact that they gave me my own c permit, without my husband getting one first and him remaining on b means that I can maintain the c permit regardless.
If you received the C permit on your own and he's still on B then I *think* the authorities are not considering it to be based on him. You've also been here 10 years, not 5, which would be VINTA route or the route via family reunification. Does your C permit say something like "familienachzug" on it?

I'm fairly certain you can apply for citizenship on your own as well. You have a C permit, have been here 10 years, and speak the language. If he's not a citizen, then your naturalization application would be regular, not facilitated anyway. I don't even think you need to mention that you'd be interested in divorce at some point. Just that you want naturalization, he doesn't qualify, so you're doing on your own.
