As so many people have said already Survive France is an excellent source of information as so many people are willing to share their knowledge and experiences. So I am very grateful for the help I’ve received so far. I am in the process of applying for a titre de séjour and I am sure there must be many others who have an EU spouse who will need to go through the same process.
I did come across a posting on survive France from an Englishman with a wife from Luxembourg. He went to the prefecture with his documents and apart from a complaint that he had no visa he had no problems. I have not been able to find this posting again to recheck it so maybe it was just my imagination or maybe it’s been deleted.
So I hope this posting will be helpful to others and to myself if any problems arise.
We did live in France three years ago and went to the local CPAM and tax offices and had no problems so I thought I’d do the same with the prefecture.
So I went last Wednesday with all my docs. Very disappointed to find that I had to have an appointment. I asked if I could make an appointment but no I could not except by sending an email. This is the address I was given
So I sent my request in on Wednesday evening. So far I haven’t had a reply or acknowledgement. The only question in my mind at the moment is how long do I wait before I send another email.
