Poland Residency, Marriage, Divorce, Kids

Hi All,

I have a complicated situation.

In February of next year I will have been living in Poland 5 years.

I started on a temporary residence, then I moved to permanent residence. Then I married a polish girl.

I then divorced with the girl, and then we stated I no longer lived at the residence. Therefore, I'm imagining that
I lost my permanent residence.

Since this time, I have continued to live in Poland and now would like to create roots to be closer to my polish son.

I would like to apply for citizenship purely as small things such as credit or mortgages just are too much hassle as
a foreign person. So my questions are...

1. Can I apply?
2. Will I be applying for permanent residency? or for citizenship outright due to previous perm resi or due to having been married and have child here. (I read it's 5 temp + 3 perm)

3. Will having it help me with making roots here. (Banks, opening a company etc.)

Regards

Mick

Once you've got permanent residency, it can't be withdrawn. Even if you stated that you no longer live there, you would need to de-register - but that still wouldn't change your permanent residency status.

1. Can I apply?

The law has changed, and you now need to pass one of the State examinations in Polish. That's the first thing.

? or for citizenship outright due to previous perm resi

Citizenship now, but the criteria has changed. Best to go to the relevant Foreigners Office and talk to them to see where you're at.

3. Will having it help me with making roots here. (Banks, opening a company etc.)

There is absolutely no difference between having permanent residency and citizenship - except for one thing - voting.

Heck - I haven't encountered any trouble at all with the temporary EU residence certificate.
