Surely some of you, British or American, have gotten married here to a French citizen.  Perhaps you could explain to me what on earth is a "Certificate de Coutume"  (sur les lois regissant les mariages dans les etat americains).    It is something  different, apparently from the Certificate de celibate, which testifies that I may legally marry without constraints.  And finally, an "Apostille" delivered by my state of birth.  This is not my birth certificate.    I speak fluent French and asked the officer at the Marie to explain these things, but he said "Ecoutez Madame,"   It is all explained here, as he underlined various paragraphs, "J'ai une marriage qui m'attend!" .     Can anyone enlighten me?    Thanks, Beebe

A colleague of mine is looking for a junior Marketing/Communication English native speaker and was complaining of getting nothing but CVs from experienced people, no young, junior profiles.This prompted a conversation about what the "expat" or dual nationality kids do after school and uni.   Do you find that your older kids have a tendency to move away after school or not move back after university, especially if they attended a uni abroad?  If so, is it because they don't like the area itself, or the culture, or because they find there aren't enough career prospects here?Really curious about this, especially since I have 3 kids who will be in this position soon/within a few years, so would be interested to find out what happens in other families :)

Hi we are traveling and homeschooling with our 8 and 10 year old children.  We will be in Antibes from mid Aug through end of September.   Is there any portal for parents looking to get kids together to play--meet?  Any classes for kids in Antibes that may work for children who don't speak French?  Thanks so much!

We are moving to the French Riviera from Canada sometime in August/September. We have 3 kids under the age of 4. Any suggestions on places to live near Cannes/Nice? I've looked at many of the suggested places like Mougins, Valbonne, Biot, Opio, Vence, Antibes but many of these areas look very hilly and not great for kids to run free or ride their bike. I'm almost thinking there is no such place unless we move an hour away into the countryside or farther south along the Riviera. We need to be close to the international airport and international schools, preferably 30-45min drive. I would love to find a kid friendly town where it's safe for kids to walk, run and play without me having to hold their hands or confine them to a stroller. A place with playgrounds, athletic/swimming centers, aqua parks, etc. Any suggestions?

Good evening, we are a bit different than all of you because we are a french family, just came back in France after 4 years in Malta. So, strangely we are looking to find expats in France haha ! Like English expats , we need to find a school for our 6 years old daughter who is absolutely bilingual ! Idealy in nice ... she did the test for the publics bilinguals school and she failed ... Yes yes failed ! Unbelievable, really, money money probably there ... very bad to know that from public school ... ( she got more point in English , I tell you ... there is something wrong ... ) So you check about bilingual school. We wanted to register her to abc school, this is our choice about price location etc ... But, the salary are not what we expected in France ... And we ask ourself if 7000€/ year will be not to much ... But for sure the best will be for her to have a bilingual " cp ". Then I checked about private school with some English ( not the level of our daughter , That is the problem ... ) and most of them are full up. The price is only 700€/year, a big big difference .So , I asked myself, which school  English people Choose for there children ? Thank you you ReAly much for you attention . And we are open to meet you and yours kids , to speak English or French
