Re: Unemployment benefit for L permit holders

.... Then I got 2 months extension and we got another L permit for 2 months! Last time Gemeinde told me they did not ask me to renew the permit as they thought I would leave.
I don't know why you are surprised at this.
You were here on a 2 year contract, which your company extended by 2 months. The permit matched the contract perfectly.
The gemeinde takes the reasonable assumption that now your company relocates you to your next place of employment, or back home.
That's what responsible employers do.

Re: Unemployment benefit for L permit holders

Have a similar case ....subject is UK citizen and has been here 2-3 years for work and now unemployed(2020 ---prior to brexit)...with RAV but only given 6 months by migration though framework is till next year.

How does this work ? Are you given extension to your resident permit after 6 months ...not claiming any other benefit. Thanks

What exactly do you mean? The person had a permit? Which permit as he would have got a b permit.

If your questions is : Once the b permit expires and you are on the rav do you get the permit extended I believe the answer is yes for the length of the rav entitlement. Maybe brexit has changed things but this is how it was always understood. Someone more knowledgable might be able to help

Wife and Child got residence permit without husband

Husband, wife and child applied for residence permit together. But wife and child only got residence permit to search for jobs. This is really shocking. Wife and Child are from EU, husband is non EU. Is there anything the husband can do? Never heard of anything like this before.

Re: Wife and Child got residence permit without husband

In another thread you said your family in EU whilst you are not... That pretty much exains it. Have you gotten the legal advice you have been suggested multiple times over?

Re: Unemployment benefit for L permit holders

papuu - I've merged your threads to try and keep relevant information in one place.

Unfortunately, your story isn't making sense so we're trying to clarify your situation in order to offer advice. Here's what I have gathered so far:
  • Your spouse is an EU citizen. She has worked 9 months of the last two years
  • You are not an EU citizen.
  • You are here on a dependent L permit, i.e. your permit is based on that of your EU spouse
  • You have worked here for 26 months, have lost your job, and wish to apply for unemployment benefits
Now you're saying that you don't have a permit at all? Is this because your spouse is not working any more and has been given a job seeker permit? You should still have some sort of permit otherwise the authorities would have asked you to leave.

If you've worked here for two years and still have a valid permit, normally I think you should be eligible for unemployment benefits. However, my understanding of family reunification is that the EU spouse needs to be the one that proves he/she can provide for the family. Maybe there's an issue with using your non-EU unemployment benefits to stay here.

I know you don't want to tell your life story here, but your very brief posts are not adding up to a coherent story. If you can provide a bit more information we might be able to point you to some more resources.

Thanks. This is mostly right except the fact that my family was on dependent L permit. We applied for residence permit together around a month ago for job search. My wife and child recently got it but I did not get anything yet. So I contacted the migrationsamt. They are saying that they don't know how long it will take to process the application. Now the question is what I can do now?

My current status is someone who is waiting for a residence permit approval. Not sure if I can do anything from legal perspective if I am not a resident here anymore.

Re: Unemployment benefit for L permit holders

So you've not been denied a permit, but you've not had approval yet. It is normal for Non-EU to take longer.

You can still look for a job during this time, but you have an issue..... if you want to take a job without going through the Non-EU hiring process, your wife needs to get a job and support you for a dependant permit first. Without that, you're pretty stuck I'm afraid.

The permit was L as the contracts were always less than a year. So the query is as per L permit
