Re: Separation/Divorce

Hmmm...judging from what you just told me, then my permit will be rejected too, since I have only lived in Switzerland for about 2 years, though married for 3 years.

Perhaps the best solution is to find a job elsewhere and leave the country.

Not necessarily. All situations are treated on a case-by-case basis. If your job pays enough then it should not be a problem.

Re: Separation/Divorce

Thanks Shorrick MK2,

I consulted a (expensive and useless) lawyer who stated too that chances are close to nil if the stay in Switzerland is less than 3 years.

And I do not know how high is considered as having a high salary here in Switzerland, to be deemed as having the capability to 'support' oneself here...I presume, they have two separate salary levels - one for Swiss, and one (which I presume is much much higher) for foreigners....

No offense to the lawyers, but they do not make the decision. You need to go to the immigration office and talk to them. You say you have a job in IT and you speak French & German. I'm assuming that you have an apartment/place to live that you can afford. So I think you should go make your case to them. Tell them you like your job and you are sad you marriage didn't work out but you want to stay at your job and live here. They will tell you what you chances are and/or what to do.

Good luck!
