Yup, I shouldn't have told The CAF, Someone from the CAF said that herself. However, my children are still French and I think this is wrong and the situation is not going to change for the forseeable. Does anyone know an Avocat with a hatered for the CAF?

If you spend more than 6 month out of France you loose everything...unless your work require you to be out of france.Before anything you should see with your consulate or ambassy your legal time out of france. Good Luck

I'm so sorry for the plight you find yourselves in. My daughter has been locked in a battle with the CAF since December so I can sympathise.

Good luck

We live in the Var. I have done all the above. If I don't have a CAF number I can't have the MDPH or ask for legal aid. We left France for 10mnths, I told the CAF before we left to not cheat them. I am now in the position of a newcomer in France and I am being investigated for frauding The French and English goverments. My life style and children do not permit such adventures!

Correction from the above post...... if your children are recognized as having the statute handicappé through MDPH, the CAF has no legal right to ignore this statute.

Contact the assistant social for your village. He/she will come to your home and evaluate your situation, and point you in the right direction regarding your children. Being that you have lived in France 25 years, and your children are French, one would assume the language wouldn't be a barrier.

You mentioned not having money for food, and the assistant social can also make an emergency request where you can receive a one-time allocation in for an urgency situation. We live in a socialist society, and if your children are French, they will not be allowed to go hungry if you make the proper requests.

Regarding your CAF and Handicap situation, if your children are recognized as handicapped through MDPH, the CAF has legal right to ignore this fact. You can get free legal assistance by going to your closest Antenne de Justice and making a request.

I have tried everything possible. I need legal advice, my daughters are French and the state is refusing them their rights. I cannot even register my daughter as handicapped without having the CAF. They are playing a waiting game and hope I will give up and go. Nowhere to go so thats not an option. thanks for your reply.

Our Mairie has an employee who works and assists specifically with social issues and helps sort paperwork and rights. Maybe you could see if there is someone at your Mairie who could assist with this? Good luck.
