Re: French inheritence

Hi. You dont say what Nationality they are . If British and they have a British will registered in France then they can disinherit. If under French law then the grandson inherits the part of his parent who died

I would recommend getting in touch with a cat association in your area. Adult cats are very hard to place , your old cat may well accept her in the end. It takes time for adult cats to get along, as long as they are not fighting then it means they are ok. Often 1 will back down in the end and accept...

Might be a good idea to put what budget you have on here just in case someone has something available .
Good luck

For the question of the department for Brits it is always 99.
For the driving licence you have to make an appointment at the Prefecture and go in with all your paperwork. They will check everything there.

Would it not be a good idea to try and get one company to fly to the UK from Perpignan all year round rather than trying to find more compagnies to fly here in the summer? Flights are very limited from the end of October. We basically have the choice of Carcassonne or going to Toulouse or Barcelona.

Unless you can prove that you have only just received it then you have no hope . Best to pay now before it goes up anymore as they will never forget you and will at some point freeze your account and get it that way. Even if you can prove it you still have to pay first and then contest it. Otherwise...
