Hi, It depends on what purpose of your stay - a short visit (less than 90 days) or a long one that will result in getting a residence in France. Since you want a quickest way - then Schengen visa is the way. You should apply as soon as possible. It takes about 15 days max but in many cases it takes hardly a week. They may decide to give you a long term one or a short term but if you want a long term one, say 2 to 5 years, supplement your application with a cover letter specifically for longer visa term consideration.
You first must register on France visa web
and once you have finished there depending on your location of application you might be be directed to use tlscontact or some other third party companies or visit the French consulate directly.
For a short visit you will need:
1)A travel document, issued less than 10 years ago, containing at least two blank pages, with a period of validity at least 3 months longer than the date on which you intend to leave the Schengen Area or, in the case of a long stay, at least three months longer than the expiry date of the visa requested.
2)CERFA form n°14076*01 or 14571*05, duly completed, dated and signed
2)ID photographs (2)
3) If you are not a national of your country of residence: proof that you are legally resident in that country (e.g. residence permit)
B: Purpose of travel/stay
1) Complete recent copy of the French marriage certificate or copy of the transcript of the marriage certificate in the consular civil registries
2) Proof of French nationality of the spouse
C: Travel health insurance
Travel health insurance certificate valid for all Shengen States.
This is a free visa. No payment at all.
Wishing you a good luck!
