German Citizenship Lawyers

Germany has always been one of the most popular immigration destinations in the world due to its stable political situation, strong economy, and central location in the heart of Europe. It is an ideal location for working, starting a family, and realising personal goals and ambitions. German citizenship law is being modernised to facilitate deeper integration and, thus, a greater sense of belonging, political participation, and identification with Germany. Over the next few years, several million foreigners are expected to fulfil the requirements to become German citizens for the first time through naturalisation and residency.

The acquisition of German citizenship is generally based on the principle of descent or place of birth. According to this principle, people acquire German citizenship at birth or through their family roots. However, for people who are resident in Germany, there is the possibility of acquiring German citizenship through residence, based on the length of time a person has lived in Germany.

In this context, the German law firm Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte offers skilled and committed legal advice. Whether you are applying for German citizenship, dual citizenship or a retention permit, our legal team will handle your matter with the necessary expertise and commitment.
