You will be illegal unless you have a valid visa or residence permit. You have had several months to plan the birth of your child, so you can only blame it on poor planning if you give birth in Denmark while in the country illegally.

Thank you for the reply.Its just I went to FOA Au Pair and the one who is in charge there said that I have automatic two months extension I can stay without any papers thats what the lawyer said. I am just scared to follow there advice and what they said to me cause they also said I can apply for a Zambrano case after my baby is born.

If you have applied for an extension of your current residence permit or if you have applied for a different kind of residence permit, you may get a processual stay, meaning you are allowed to wait in the country while your papers are processed. You should get this in writing from the authorities! If, however, the outcome of your application is negative, and the authorities deem that your application is groundless and that you ought to know that, you will be entered into the SIS database and unable to return to the Schengen area in a foreseeable future and your stay will have been illegal for the duration of your processual stay.

In any case, at this late hour you are probably unable to travel anywhere, so what can you do?

If your stay has been illegal, you may find that the authorities will ask you to pay the cost of medical help too. This can be quite expensive, giving birth may cost 25000 kr. in hospital bills.

Would it be okay if we will get married with bf and apply for family reunification even if we know already the outcome will be negative just so I can stay while its still processing and waiting for the result?

No. If you know the outcome is going to be negative because you obviously don't fulfil the requirements, the authorities will deem that you ought to know it beforehand and consider your stay illegal.

As I think I have advised you previously, the alternative would be to use EU law, moving to another EU/EEA country for a period of at least 3 months before returning to Denmark. And to do that you would need to be married, and your spouse would need to be able to provide for you financially or be working or studying or receive a pension.

The SIRI said I should apply for an extension for my current residence permit (au pair ). And I told them that my host dont want to sign at it anymore cause we already reach the 24 month maximum of au pair stay and SIRI said ill just fill up the form creat a case id and fee the pee and scan and submit the application to them and then they will decide when I need to leave denmark..Is this okay? I just want to hear from someone about this.

You have been advised already that you cannot stay legally after the expiry of your current permit. Nothing can change that. You MUST leave Denmark. And if you don't do so, you risk being entered in the SIS database and being unable to come visit again or any other Schengen country within the next 2 or 5 years and being deported. You also risk to have to pay for medical help during your pregnancy which can be a huge amount of money.

Good day, my first reply on the this forum. This thread has been very useful thus far. I am going to be embarking on this family reunification process soon once i have gathered all my documents and that of my wife. For now i have one question that i hope you can assist with.

When in the process does does the collateral deposit need to be made? how much time do i have to make it? I ask as the funds which i plan on using need a 10-15 day notice till they are available for me to use.

Thanks in advance

You do not need to make the deposit until you get a positive answer.

When you are asked for the deposit you have 3 weeks to make the arrangement with the bank and get the signed papers (signed in the bank) send to the kommunen.
