I wanted to ask some advise on the main differences between getting PACSed and getting married? Are there any tax differences? How does it affect children of the relationship, inheritance etc?
My situation is that my partner and I have been together for 20 years but we are not married. We also have a 9 year old daughter together. We are thinking that it may be sensible to either get PACSed or married as we do own a house and other assets so it would be sensible and easier if there was a legal contract between us, aside from the fact that after 20 years it's probably about time we did one or the other!
In the UK before coming to France we did go to the Magistrates court and applied for parental responsibility for my partner as even though he is my daughters father and on her birth certificate he had no legal rights at all in the UK, even down to decisions on medical treatment. I think that this would be invalid in France so it is best to do something here to protect our family.
Does anyone have any advise from either side? Thanks!
