Re: German Citizenship under Article 116 #germany

Melody Schloss

My husband, my son, and two of my grandchildren received German citizenship under this Article.  My father-in-law was the individual through whom they qualified.  They applied in December of 2014 and received it in February of 2015.  This may, however, been expedited by the fact that my brother-in-law had already gone through the process and received his citizenship, and my husband, etc. could reference his file.  
As I recall they did have to have proof of my father-in-law's German birth (we have his birth certificate) and of course, the birth certificates of those applying. They did not have to prove knowledge of the German language.
My husband also succeeded in obtaining a German passport.
