The father’s asylum procedure is still pending

If both parents’ asylum procedures are still pending, the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees demands that an asylum procedure for the child who is born in Germany shall also be initiated. If the parents neglect to do this, the Federal Office will initiate the procedure. The parents will be notified and asked if and on which grounds they wish to claim asylum for their child.

In case the parents choose to initiate the asylum procedure, the child will, just like its parents, receive a residence permit for the duration of the procedure. If the parents waive the procedure, the child will only be granted a temporary suspension of deportation that will be valid until the parents’ asylum procedure is concluded. Depending on the outcome of the parents’ or the father’s asylum request, the abovementioned details will then apply.
