Your rights if you have married a Swiss
If the authorities are able to prove that you have entered into marriage with a Swiss for the purposes of circumventing entry and residency requirements (marriage of convenience), you will no longer be entitled to authorization for residence.
If you are prohibited from entering Switzerland, this prohibition will not necessarily be lifted through marriage. The Aliens Police make decisions on a case-by-case basis.
Your entitlement to residence and permanent establishment may even be revoked subsequent to marriage if there is a basis for deportation.
You have the possibility of being joined in Switzerland by your minor children (born out of wedlock or from a previous marriage). You must acquire authorization from the Aliens Police prior to their entry into Switzerland. Adoption by the Swiss spouse is possible following two years of marriage, insofar as the child has lived with the new family during this time.
