My partner (we have a domestic partnership registered in our home country) is a UN employee and we have lived in Geneva for the past 4 years. We have CdLs as our permits, and I am identified on mine as the 'concubin' of my hardworking partner.
We have a car registered in her name that we wish to transfer to registration under my name (we have different family names). We also wish to keep the same plates on the vehicle.
I am clear on the procedure for registering a vehicle and we have the form for transferring the plates. My question is about the process for advising the current insurance company about this transfer. My partner has a policy that I regard as exorbitant, and also the company insists that my partner cannot transfer the existing insurance policy to me as we do not have a marriage certificate. So I plan to take out insurance with another company.
What do we need to send to my partner's insurance company to terminate her policy following transfer of the registration? The company concerned is being very vague about the process, and simply suggests that I might like to take out a new policy with them.
Is a simple email to the company enough? Do we need an attestation from the cantonal authorities?
Any other thoughts on this matter in general?
Thanks in advance.
