Re: Residence permit status after divorce

Just as the subject says. I'd like to know what becomes of my residence permit after a divorce; for example, how long I'll have before the government throws me back to my home country. I have no job or studies (other than Finnish courses) that I could re-apply for, and no other family. I don't have...

tax is heavily influenced by having kids?
It’s not. There are perks though like the monthly child benefit from Kela.
It's 200€ for two kids. I believe I use more money than that on my kids, but it's something of course.

I know Finns from there who don't speak Finnish at all. So yes?

Life is fine for me with English alone and I can't think of any reason to learn aside from citizenship.
How many friends do you have?

Re: How to find a power outlet for my engine block heater?

not all places have the power sockets, the car will survive without but with worse fuel consumption and icy windows in the morning. You can always add a fuel powered heater to the car. Many cars in Germany have this fuel powered system (standheizung) https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standheizung In my...

Have you resolved the issue or was there a mistake in your application?
This is the best question here. If you don't have available funds then appealing it's a waste of time. If you do have them then maybe you need to provide more concise proves.
