Travailleur Temporaire to Vie Privée et Familiale

I love that I just now received my travailleur temporaire carte de séjour for being an assistant when I have five weeks of work left. Really, what was the point??

Anyway, I got the list of documents that I need to provide for my first vie privée et familiale card due to being PACSed. For the Annecy prefecture, this is the list:

Demande de Carte de Séjour
Premiere Carte Vie Privée et Familiale – PACS
Photocopies et Originaux

Important: Lors du dépôt du dossier les deux partenaries doivent être présents. SAUF CAS PARTICULIER (régularisation exceptionelle…) CETTE CARTE EST DELIVREE AU RENOUVELLEMENT DE LA CST VISITEUR précédemment obtenue avec un visa D.

- Passeport: pages d’identité, numéro, dates de validité et entrée régulière en France
- Carte nationale d’identité ou passeport du partenaire FRANCAIS
- Extrait d’acte de naissance datant de moins de 3 mois, avec filiation traduit en français (traducteur assermenté)
- Déclaration de communauté de vie (à remplir en mairie)
- Déclaration de non polygamie (à remplir en mairie)
- Justificatif de domicile aux deux noms : contrat de location ou quittance de loyer ou d’électricité de moins de trois mois. Si vous êtes hébergé par un particulier, attestation d’hébergement du logeur + piece d’identité + quittance. Si vous êtes hébergé dans une résidence, attestation d’hébergement.
- 3 photos d’identité (45mm x 35mm)
- Justificatifs de revenu du partenaire
- Justificatifs de communauté de vie antérieurs au PACS

LE CAS ECHEANT:
Imprime visite médicale ANAEM à renseigner en MAIRIE
Désistement recours contentieux en cours

UPDATE April 14: You also need to bring a copy of your current carte de séjour, a récépissé de PACS that is less than 3 months old, the actual PACS contract, and a déclaration des impôts !!!

So I’m not sure what some of those documents are, especially the last one about communauté de vie antérieurs au PACS. I guess we’ll have to go to the mairie and figure this stuff out. I’m annoyed that I have to get another birth certificate from Michigan and then have it translated (for 35 €), when I’ve already done that for my previous CDS and to get PACSed.

And I need to renew my passport soon, but first I have to find a photo shop around here that will do American passport photos. Luckily I can renew by mail and pay with my American credit card too: http://www.amb-usa.fr/consul/acs/passports/renewal.htm

Paperwork fun never ends. I can’t wait for May when I can start filling out unemployment forms!

    why can’t you just do one of those photomatons in your nearest supermarche?? They are the same size as American passport photos and also include a white backdrop. Plus, you can keep taking pictures until you’re satisfied and you can adjust your face/shoulders exactly as they need to be according to US standards.Also, this is probably the best thing I’ve read all day: Déclaration de non polygamie. haha, good luck!

    They won’t accept photos from the Photomatons here. They claim the quality is not good enough or something.

    Actually, they’re not the same size – the American ones are square and bigger, and the French ones are smaller and rectangular (5×5 vs 3×4.5). Plus, there are extremely specific instructions, like your head has to be X% of the photo, and X distance from all of the borders. Any photographer should be able to do it for you though Jennie, and on the plus side, it’s actually cheaper than it is back home!! I paid 6€, and most studios back home will charge you $16. The embassy processed it really fast too, I think I got it back within 5 days. Just a tip – if you pay with a mandat cash from the post office instead of your credit card, it comes out cheaper as well because of the exchange rate (they have the official exchange rate posted on the embassy website).PS. Don’t know if you saw, but I replied back to you on the assistant site re: the justificatifs.

    Does the embassy offer any such photo services? I know I had my passport photos done at the post office at home since I think they were the only place that could do them right… CVS just could not get it right.

    I’m new to France, just going through the motions of getting an apartment in Northern Annecy right now and I’ve never experienced anything like it for paperwork and required documents. I’m sure that buying a house in my home town was far easier than renting something over here (and not just simply because people knew me!).. I don’t know what I would do without my workplace helping me with it all! Anyway, good luck – and the IE languages site is great too, by the way…

Why is Jennie no longer in France?

I created this blog in September 2006 when I moved to France from Michigan to teach English. Many of the earlier posts are about my personal life in France, dealing with culture shock, traveling in Europe and becoming fluent in French. In January 2010, I started focusing more on teaching and learning languages in general. In July 2011, I relocated to Australia to start my PhD in Applied Linguistics. Although I am no longer living in France, my research is on foreign language pedagogy and I teach French at the university so these themes appear most often on the blog. I also continue to post about traveling (though now my trips are usually in Australia) and being an American abroad.
