We spoke to a law firm, they said that the pacsing visa does not allow me to work, so it would be kind of useless thing, I would like to work and not rely solely on my beauty. I tried to go today to Rue Cambrai at the Paris District Court, it seems that they have changed the procedure so that you cannot personally apply for the certificate of non-pacs, but that you will have to refer to the office of The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs in nantes…! Once a couple has entered into a PACS, they are treated as if they held their assets in undivided, i.e. they keep separately the assets they held when they were registered in the PACS and all assets acquired over the life of the PACS are held separately in 50 per cent of shares separately divided separately. Therefore, when the PACS is closed, it is easy to determine who owns what and neither partner is entitled to the other`s assets. Hello emily! Thanks for your blog posts, they are extremely helpful! I am currently on a long student visa stay that started last September! my friend and I plan to go over the next few months, but I`m curious when after I can apply for the visa? I intend to apply this summer, and it will be a year of living together. Will this affect my student visa? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!! Hello Emily, thank you for your reply! 🙂 We plan to do what you proposed at the time. I have two final questions to ask you: (1) I am coming home by chance for a short period of time, and I wanted to confirm that it is not necessary for Cotume`s certificate to be authenticated in a notarized message. I`d like to do it with a notary when I`m home, if possible. (2) I have received a certificate of non-Pacs which also says that I am not “registered in the civil replica.” Basically, a two-for-one certificate. Do you know if I need to have two separate certificates, or if they should work to prove both? Thank you so much for your excellent contribution! We used it to prepare for our PACS🙂 but I have a question – not about the CDS or the private and family life visa that you could get after a while from PACs.
My question is to take the PACS contract that we will get from City Hall and use it in my long-term visitor visa application at the French Consulate in Sydney. DId you will receive a long-term visitor visa with your PACS? I am happy not to work in France for the duration of my visa, and I can sign a Stat Dec on this subject and show the means sufficient to support me during the duration of the visa. I`m just wondering what kind of information was needed to get the Long Stay Visitor Visa, so I can be prepared to the best, because it`s an expensive and tedious exercise that goes back especially to Australia and SYdney to make the appointment – and there are no clear rules on the site. THanks so much, and congratulations!! A PACS is not synonymous with marriage under French law and the United States does not recognize it as a marriage. For more information on PACS, visit all French consular websites in the United States or on the following websites: vosdroits.service-public.fr/particuliers/N144.xhtml and ambafrance-us.org/spip.php?article331. We were incredibly lucky – I went to court in the 11th arrondissement of Paris on Thursday, September 1st. When the woman went through our papers, she said we had to bring another birth certificate for D. I asked why, because I thought they were valid for 3 months. She said the next appointments were not until December. As my visa expires in November, she returned the file, and when I packed my bags, I disparagingly told her that we had to do it through a notary for 390 euros, but it was better than going back to the United States.
