Residency In Belgium


My kids and their mum are from the Nederland's and they now resides in Belgium.I have been illegal in Belgium for years now and I will like to know if I can apply for residence permit based on the fact that I have European kids now residing in Belgium.?????


It's unclear whether you're illegal in Europe
Or only here what's your language skills employment etc this could
All affect your case

If the mother of your children doesn't have sufficient income of her own, her presence in Belgium could also be illegal. Are she and the children registered as Belgian residents?

Go back to your home country and apply for an appropriate Belgian visa from there.
