I have a question to those who knows the "article 30-3" well, Do you wether the law applies to every French citizens or just for the former colonies? And do you know if death of one of the French parents who was the "source" of the french nationality stops the counting of the 50 years?
The case is about my grandmother (still alive) She was born in 1946 in Tunisia to two French parents (the mother was born in Tunisia and naturalised when she was 8 years old with her family in 1928, and the father was part of the Jewish community in Algeria which naturalised collectively in 1870 by Cremieux Decree.)
They left north-africa in 1951 and they were living in Israel continuously since then, my grand-mother's father passed away in 1983 and her mother passed away in 1998, they have never done anything regarding their French nationality since they came to Israel in 1951, her father was serving in the French army and was POW in WW2.
From what I understood is that the law says that it start's counting 50 years backwards from the date of the death of the father which is 1983 which means 1933. Am I right?
P.S. we've already applied for CNF in the name of my grandmother in the end of 2018 and still waiting for an answer.
