What puzzles me is why you don't go to Urzad Miasta (Town Hall) and ask - would that not be simpler? Or am I mising something?

I will go, but i just want to have a pre-idea about the procedure of getting the residence, and get ready for it mentally.
Thats how i do things in my life, i ask different people, and i asked this question here hoping that somebody will have the same situation like mine.

Im a perfectionist, i would like to do things right without wasting time.

If I recall correctly, they give you a form in the Foreigners' Office, and you show them your passport, marriage certificate, proof of funds, proof of health insurance, and sometimes have to supply some photos where one of your ears is visible (along with your face). You are then asked to sing the national anthem in Polish to a member of staff which is simultaneously recorded via webcam on to the Polish national computer. This clip has the words and audio and may help you with the last bit (remember to practice holding up your left hand as you sing)

Sometimes they say the person can just hum it.

You mean the way Poles do it?

Yes, like when they get their laminated plastic ID card - they have to hum the anthem and hit that difficult note towards the end of each verse and only when the machine "hears" that does it actually start to print and encode the card. I know of some Poles taking singing lessons and classes to make sure they're not stuck in the office there singing it again and again or having to hum it again and again until the card office's laser printer finally detects the right semi-quaver.

Are you giving those lessons?

Yes, on Skype, just 99zł for 45 minutes. (Most students need about 10 lessons to be word-perfect.) Of course, the best and most spirited rendition of the anthem each month gets entered into the vovoidship prize draw to win a year's supply of potatoes.

I don't think you need to sing the national anthem to get the residence card. I have a residence card but never had to sing it.

Here's the link in English about the residence card. You can click to download the files from "Text Attachments" at the lower part of the page.

Firstly you have to get a "Residence permit for a defined period of time", and when this card expires(in 3 years I believe) you're eligible to obtain "Permission to settle".

I think you must go to the immigration office immediately and tell them your situation. The longer you wait the more trouble you get into as your stay here now has become illegal.
