Apparently I read some info that says the visa should be free but is wasn't for me, I had to pay twice as the first app was refused. Is France visa free for non eea national whose spouse is French?
And finally my visa is type C where do I queue(with my spouse?) and do I get my passport stamped?

passport with residence card stamp inside
Hotel reservation/lodging attestation
3 months payslips
There required I sumitted all these or visa will be refused
The visa is type C and it doesn't have family member of ... On it.
And we're traveling together

Pay slips are mine.
isn't it also illegal to require such amount of documents and refuse me visa because I can provide an original lodging attestation?

Schengen visa processing handbook wrote:3.2. Service fee in case of outsourcing of the collection of applications
As family members should not pay any fee when submitting the application, they cannot be
obliged to obtain an appointment via a premium call line or via an external provider whose
services are charged to the applicant. Family members must be allowed to lodge their
application directly at the consulate without any costs. However, if family members decide
not to make use of their right to lodge their application directly at the consulate but to use the
extra services, they should pay for these services.
If an appointment system is nevertheless in place, separate call lines (at ordinary local tariff)
to the consulate should be put at the disposal of family members respecting comparable
standards to those of "premium lines", i.e. the availability of such lines should be of standards
comparable to those in place for other categories of applicants and an appointment must be
allocated without delay.
