Specifics re. docs for Carte de Sejour
Hi all - I did try to search for this. Pls point me there if I'm missing it...
I am wondering if there is a list of the docs I'll need to apply for a carte de sejour (I'm the Canadian/US spouse of a UK citizen. Kids all have UK citizenship also).
I believe I need the following: Proof of residence - (lease, utility bill); Certified copy of marriage certificate (married in Hawaii). ? is this a translation certified by ? who? Or is it a translation DONE by a 'certified translator'? In either case am I better off getting this done by someone in France? Any suggestions on where I could find such a person? We'll be moving to Paris.
Do I need the hubby and kids' passports translated? Will I need something that says that the UK recognises our marriage, and if so how does one get such a thing and from where? Does it need to be translated as well?
I think I also need proof of 'means'. Will a bank statment w significant savings do the trick? Anything I'm missing?
Thanks all for your extremely helpful advice!!
