Death of EU Spouse
There are some conditions, though:
- the marriage must have lasted for at least 3 years; AND
- You must have spent at least 1 of those 3 years in Bulgaria.
If you have had children under the age of 18, the principle remains the same. In such a case, the nationality of the child would be a factor and whether it has residency rights in Bulgaria.
Because this solution is based on the outcome of a judicial case from the EU Courts, it is not entirely straightforward. The engagement of an Immigration partner is recommended.
