  1. Today
  2. Hi ya Rose You sound like me…whoever you are. 2007 was well before my time on forums. Threads don’t change though in all this time.
  3. Hi Rose, lovely to see you here. Say bonjour to Greyman from me🙂
  4. Poor old boy and poor old Wooly.... Nothing more to say because I am sure that all of us who have lost pets know only too well the grief that can follow and anything like your news makes us grieve all over again remembering......
  5. What a sweet old face. Heartbreaking.
  6. Oh, so sorry Wooly, it's awful to lose a beloved pet. 😢
  7. Welcome back Rose, The forum is a bit quieter than it was but I think you'll find some of the old faces still around.
  8. Hello boys and girls... its been a long long time since I dropped by but for some reason I thought of you all. How is everyone? We're still in our little corner of France, but currently travelling as much as we can. What's new with you guys 🙂
  9. Yesterday
  10. The last photo of the Tadpole; it was his last walk and he had slipped in a pile of mud. And he was looking less than happy at the thought of a shower. I had to take him to the vet on a one way trip last week.He was one month short of 17. The hole in my life is deep. RIP Tadpole, I hope that you are chasing them all in Hedgehogland!

  12. Last week
  13. It's all a bit fluid at the moment but there is a way where you can get a spousal visa by having savings rather than income. There are conditions on how long you need to keep the money sitting in a bank account and it's not cheap. I think the current mininum is 67,000. That no doubt will go up as well.
  14. I remember a year or so back meeting a couple on the BF boat who told me they got their CdS in France by pretending they had a main residence….which was actually their mates gite in Brittany. They provided other documentation to support their application such as a French mobile contract they took out at said residence. They do not live in France…pay tax in France just like going to France for a jolly at French tax payers expense…..with their CDS in hand. Moreover, one of them was a recently elected politician in the green party in the UK. Sometimes you can’t make life up. That is a true story folks. Anyway, I can’t find out how an French anglo family can ‘retire’ to the UK. I have been through all the websites but can’t find an answer.
  15. But the UK doesn't issue a CDS, it's a tatty bit of paper called a "right to remain".
  16. I am certain that having applied for, and been approved, for the issue of a CDS, having declared your income when you origially applied for it, there is no requirement to establish your income level upon the occasion of your CDS renewal. In other words, having been issued with a CDS you are entitled to renew it for the rest of your life. That's true for most CdS but we were talking about the situation in the UK.
  17. Same with me but what if, when you came to renew it, they said you don't earn enough I am certain that having applied for, and been approved, for the issue of a CDS, having declared your income when you origially applied for it, there is no requirement to establish your income level upon the occasion of your CDS renewal. In other words, having been issued with a CDS you are entitled to renew it for the rest of your life.
  18. If a couple are paxed are they treated as married if and when they apply for CDS and more; I think there is a financial requirement for married couples and single people?
  19. Thanks for this. I can't do it this way as I don't have a French passport/carte d'identite. Thanks anyway.
  20. Apparently the UK accepts civil partnerships from overseas so I would assume the treatment would be the same.
  21. Same with me but what if, when you came to renew it, they said you don't earn enough ( not that you're claiming any state aid just that your salary isn't good enough for them )? And because of that you had to leave. You haven't broken the law, you've paid your taxes, your children are French and ( perhaps ) you are the main provider. How would you feel? If they were there before Brexit they would have applied to remain under the EU Settlement scheme. Post that it'll be one of the various visa schemes. If you've married a UK citizen or someone who has indefinite leave to remain the new income limits apply.
  22. That is a very good point…but in the good old days of the EU you did not need French nationality. But when I moved in the 90’s…you did need to have a CDS to exist. Which were a longer bigger in size Norman…lol. That was fair enough. I don’t want or need French nationality. I’m not French, will never be and we are all happy to coexist on that level. I have a CdS. If I break the law then withdraw it and send me packing. I’m happy with that. How do the thousands of French exist in the UK ? They all don’t have British nationality.
  23. I have read both the above articles and neither cover the scenario I have given. The partner of a French National, living legally in the country, applying for a renewal of their visa and having it refused for no other reason than that the family income isn't the same or above that of the top 25% of the country. And the intention for that partner to then be deported. You've said in the past ALBF that you don't have French Nationality. I wonder, by what right, you are allowed to live in the country.
  24. And that is the point. Those of us who have got mixed up in this shît are left in limbo. We pay our taxes, pay our way, don’t break the law, live out our lives peacefully and integrate in society. We get left out in the cold. We can’t move anywhere. It makes me soo mad.
