Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
just print out the version of Directive 2004/38 in French and point to Article 3(2)(b) of the Directive. They won't deny you entry, I am almost 100% as any senior border guard will be clued up when they see your partner's RC and take your baby's birth certificate showing your names on it (whether you are taking the baby with you or not) which is the ultimate proof of the durable relationship. I wouldn't worry about the appeal bundle but the judgement letter should suffice, if needed at all. The French are better accustomed to the RC now and I heard many of them even let people through without their partners/spouses simply on the basis of the RC card.Schengener wrote:thanks for your reply. that website made me very unsure, its nt german though. i felt a bit discouraged, but your reply is lifting my spirits again. yes he's got the brit RC as eea family member, we fought for it in an appeal. partnership nearly6 years, and we are now expecting a baby.
as evidence, we could just take our extensive appeal bundle and the judges determination attesting our durable relationship. topped up with whats new, council tax etc.
its quite confusing, i read a few times that unmarried partnerships are at discretion of national legislation, but then also the validity of art. 10 type res. cards.
but recital 8 in eu directive 2004 seems to imply that the rc as eea family member supersedes national legislation.... i hope
