I plan to get a civil partnership (PACS/Pacte Civil de Solidarité) either this winter, or early next year. All the paperwork just has me down. Some of these certificates, I'm sure do not even exist in my home country (certificat de coutume)
I understand why they are strict on this, (imagine, I married someone here, and took half their worth home to a husband i had hidden away in another country), but, do they REALLY ask for all these? I heard people say that they were "let off without all the papers".
i'm not saying I want to dodge doing the work, it's just, In my home country, (Ireland), we don't have civil partnership, you're either married, or not, and therefore I'm not sure that my embassy can provide that. It's bad enough I have to go home to get a brith cert.
anyone been through this process?? anyone know how it works..
aslo, what happens then, we give all this to a lawyer, and they process it for us? Or we have to go to the courthouse?
any help would be greatly appreciated.
