Thanks to all in this forum who have helped me during the last two years. I decided to renew my Carte de Sejour, and contacted the local agency in Nice that helped me last year. They were excellent, reasonably priced and probably the o ly reason I was able to deal successfully with the prefecture. This year, after my initial meeting with them, they unexpectedly closed their business and left France due to illness in the family. I don't know of a return date, and my request for a backup contact has not been answered. I must visit the prefecture in September to meet my Carte deadline. Does anyone know of a source to find a similar agency or person? I've tried Facebook and searching the Internet with no results. Thanks for any ideas.
