B Permit:Divorce and changing Address to a new Canton

Hello everyone,
I came in Switzerland 2 years ago and I got married with a swiss woman. Now we are getting divorced. I came form a country which is not EU part. I work in canton Glarus but live in canton Schwyz. Now I want to change the canton and to move in canton Glarus because the rent there is cheaper.
I would like to know how complicated is changing the canton and finding a rent house during divorce procedure since I have the B permit and my wife does not want to help me about that.
Also what are my chances to remain in Switzerland after divorce?
We did not yet started the procedure for divorce because I do not want to sign it. As i know, if I sign, the proces will take 2 months and then they will ask me to live Switzerland after divorce and thats why I want to use my right of not signin.
I left my job and everything in my country just because of her and now I dont have where to go back, thats why I want to stay in Switzerland. Can you please advice me what to do.

Sounds very much like you trying to game the system, tough, almost certainly you'll be out very soon, with or without signature.

Re: B Permit:Divorce and changing Address to a new Canton

Welcome to the Forum. Like it or not, as a non-EU your permit and right to be here are fully dependent upon your spouse.

If you want to move, you'll need to register in the new municipality. You can't do that on your own since part of the requirement of a family reunification permit is that you and your spouse live together.

In reading threads here on EF, it seems most of the time you can still stay here during divorce proceedings. However, after the divorce is final most of the time you'd have to leave unless your employer files for an independent permit and fulfills the non-EU hiring criteria. In limited cases, I've seen spouses that were able to stay, but only because they had been here a long time and were well-integrated, and because they were specialized enough that the employer could secure the permit.

How's your German? How integrated are you? How specialized is your job?

Even if you don't sign divorce papers now, the next time your permit renewal comes up your spouse will have to sign that you're still married, still living together, and have no plans to divorce. At that point you're out of luck.

Re: B Permit:Divorce and changing Address to a new Canton

Pretty much what 3Wishes said. Atm the marriage hasn't lasted long enough for you to do anything other than leave once the divorce is finalised.

https://www.ch.ch/en/right-to-reside...th-or-divorce/

Any employer will have to apply for a new independent permit for following the non-EU hiring criteria.

https://www.sem.admin.ch/sem/en/home...zulassung.html

If they decide they don't want to apply on your behalf then you're out of luck as you can't do it yourself.

As for moving cantons, nope.

Re: B Permit:Divorce and changing Address to a new Canton

hey everyone, thank you for your help.

As I said I left everything in my country just for her, I left my job, sold my car and invested everything here. So if I go back I will have nothing and I have to start form the begining. So what do you suggest me to do if you were in my situation.

As per above, you do not have much chances of staying here. Try to find a job, here or in your home country, on your own merits.

As 3wishes asked: how good is your German, how specialized your job?

I have finished B1 and since 1 year I work as seller in Tankshtelle Shop (Marche shop part of Coop). My chef said that he can try to do everything for me just to keep me here.
I cant say that I am fluent in German but its not bad.

I´m afraid that will not be sufficient to get a permit on your own here, not for non EU persons.

He will just waste his time and money if you're not a highly specialised niche market chef.

From the second link:

"Admissions are limited to managers, specialists and other qualified workers. ‘Qualified workers’ primarily means individuals with a degree from a university or university of applied sciences who also have several years of professional experience. Depending on the profession or the field of specialisation, individuals with special training and several years of professional experience can also be admitted.

In addition to professional qualifications, certain integration criteria must be taken into account when granting residence permits: a person’s professional and social adaptability, language skills and age must suggest that they can become sustainably integrated into the Swiss labour market and Swiss society."
