Long term residence card, which one to choose?
Please advise me if you have experience /knowledge:
January 2014 - I came to Belgium for work with a local contract, as a single, non-EU citizen
March 2015 - I started cohabiting with my partner who was non-EU citizen
April 2016 - I married in Belgium to my partner who was non-EU citizen
March 2018 - My husband became a Belgian citizen.
Option 1 :
--> I apply for a long residence permit in January 2019 (legal right due to working 5 years)
--> I get the long permit in 6 months, and I apply for a citizenship with it
-->I become Belgian citizen earliest in January 2020.
--> I apply for a long residence card (Card F) now (because my husband is now EU citizen and we legally reside together since 3 years.
--> I apply for a citizenship in January 2019 (Because thats the time I will legally reside in Belgium for 5 years)
--> I become citizen in around Mid 2019
Question 1: Is Option 2 valid? Can I apply to F card even though my husband is not born Belgian but became a Belgian?
Question 2: Is there a difference in the citizenship application, if I apply with F card, or with the first type of Card?
Question 3: What would you do?
Thanks a million!
