Completing the form
Namely: the form, downloadable, comprising the following documents: a questionnaire, a power of attorney and a proxy form.
It is not necessary to produce proofs of the spoliation to support the claim; the various CIVS departments will carry out the necessary archive searches.
CIVS processes one file per family only, the claimant must complete the form(s) of proxy or have it/them completed:
if he is representing a member of his family or if he is being represented.
if he wishes to be represented by an organization or an association.
For the sake of processing files rapidly, please include the maximum number of heirs and successors in the claim (brothers, sisters, cousins, etc.).
The proxy form must be accompanied by a photocopy of the identity papers of the person represented and of the parents’ Livret de Famille (family record book).
Example: you have a sister and the person who was spoliated (your father or mother) is deceased. If you assume responsibility for filing the claim, you become the principal claimant and your sister needs to give you a signed proxy form appointing you.
It may be useful to enclose other documents with your questionnaire that could assist the investigation of your claim:
