PACS in France

In France, a PACS (Pacte Civil de Solidarité) is a contractual form of civil union between two adults for organising their joint life.

The Embassy does not deliver a CNI (Certificat de Coutume) for Australians wishing to enter into a PACS.

The following attestation is accepted by the French Authorities instead of a CNI.

The French authorities may request that your birth certificate and single status certificate be apostilled (Please check with the local authorities if the document has to be less than six months old).  For more information, visit Notarial Services.

For any further information, please email us your request to: [email protected]
