It's time to continue the paper battles!
My situation: I am born in the Philippines, had a destination wedding with my German national partner
There are 3 offices that I need to visit:
(1) the Local Civil Office or the ''Ortsamt''
(2) the Foreigner Registration Office or the ''Ausländerbehörde''
(3) Civil Registry Office or the Standesamt.
The good news is that all the said offices are compact in one building,
If you are anything like me who only got an A1 certificate and cannot speak the German language well -- I believe it is best that you have your partner or the very least, a German speaking friend to accompany you on this trip. This will save you the worries regarding language barriers.
For the other details such as what documents to bring or what are my personal experiences on each of the said offices, just click on their name/link.
