Re: German student marrige to swiss

Sharing my experience in ZG canton, can't really say it will be the same for you because it depends on your canton and other elements such as your nationality and your present situation etc..

1.If we get married how long it take to register our marriage?

If you want to register in switzerland then it will take around 2 to 3 months.

My experience below,

1. Submitted all documents at civil office on 27-Jan and got confirmation letter in exactly one month
2. Applied marriage visa on 3-March and received it in 1 week from ZG canton
3. Got marriage visa stamped from Swiss embassy (in my country of residence) in exactly a week after that (same day stamping)
4. Married first week April

2:Marriage office also need any kind of verification as im living here in Germany since last 4 years?

Yes they need it, you must show Germany permit , utility bills in Germany etc... You can find the required document list from official website.

or this link

3:After marriage registration how long it take to get family reunion visa?

one week to get D visa and another week for B permit (after you arrive). total 2 weeks. (in my case) can't say it will be same for you.

4: What in case if I get job in Germany during this time slot also possible to work in Germany?

Then better take up the job and Work in Germany and make some money instead of living in switzerland without a job. ;-) . Your job in Germany has nothing to do with your marriage. however problem may arise when applying for Swiss residence permit after marriage . you can't have Swiss residence permit and Germany permit at the same time (meaning you can take up active residence only in one country), so decide where you want to live and focus accordingly.

Re: German student marrige to swiss

Hello there! I had a similar case, non-EU living in CZ, swiss Husband.

Treat my answer as info only It varies case-by-case. Now, go search for CH consulate in Germany and ask them your questions. If you don't speak German enough, ask your fiancee. My husband talked to them via e-mail and they explained what docs they need and timing quite thoroughly. But all consulates are different. I must say we were told and expected to wait for at least half a year. It was all together about 3,5. But waiting for 6 months is possible. The process is lengthy!

1.Registering marriage itself is not a big deal. What takes a lot of time is gathering paperwork for that, you will need to provide copy of your birth certificate, not older than 6 months, and you will most probably have to get it in your home country. It took me 1.5 month to get all docs and have them legalized (apostile) and translated. Then you go to consulate (i guess for your it is somewhere in DE, i had to go to Vienna - they process stuff for Central Europe), bring your docs, fill in the forms, pay and wait. They will review docs and send your fiancee a mail. It took us a month to receive good news that we are allowed to marry.You have to wait 10 days then go to Civil standesamt in CH and pick a date. Depends on where you want to marry, you can pick closest available date that can be "tomorrow". SO, 1,5 month collecting paperwork + 1 month waiting for the decision. Anything else depends where you register marriage.

2.Definitely, otherwise you need to apply in your home country. They need a confirmation that you legally reside in Germany at some address and your German residency permit. They don't care how long you are in DE. What they care is that you legally reside in the country where you will go to consulate in.

3. It took me a month

4. I don't get this question. As long as you are not legally married to your swiss fiancee, you need to follow the rules in Germany for non-EU. If you apply for marriage tomorrow and get a job offer two weeks after, I am sure you will need a work permit in DE.
I am not sure Germany will give you some sort of exception or work permit because you are in the process of getting married to a citizen of another country. However, i am not an expert here, you should ask the authorities.

Re: German student marrige to swiss

If I understand correctly, you and your Swiss girlfriend are living in Germany, and want to know what happens if you get married with your German permit while continuing to live in Germany.

Your question has little to do with Swiss laws... It's largely what the German rules say about your situation. I imagine if you get married in Germany, the 'effect' of the marriage is immediate, so can benefit for all the EU/EEA living+employment right away.

PS: As other people have said, your girlfriend will have to tell the Swiss that she got married too, that takes months as said, but in your case doesn't affect anything as you are not Swiss and seem to have no intention to move to Switzerland.

OP said "my girlfriend is living in Swiss". Then i am not sure how they can marry in DE. She will have to gather all paperwork for German authorities. I think it is easier to marry in CH.
