We had the pleasure of using the expertise and services of Admin-Ace to put together our Visa Application for our planned move to France.  As you can imagine, a move in itself is stressful.  A move to another country is in another category.  However, Lorna ensured the whole process went smoothly.  She was on the end of the phone so many times reassuring us.  Her care and professionalism goes beyond the call of duty.  I can not recommend Admin-Ace highly enough!

We would like to say big “thank you” to Justine who helped us in very difficult and very awkward situation to retreive our deposit back from French Builder. It was very challenging but Justine managed to stay determined to sort it out. With positive result. We are very greatful for Justine’s help and would recommend her to anyone.

Dolly and Steve Hopkins

An excellent supportive service
We couldn’t have coped with the French paperwork without your help! Thankyou Justine

Lynda Fisher

Lorna was recommended to us by a friend after we were let down badly by another helping hand.  Lorna has been a professional and reassuring person from the very beginning and has always been honest and upfront with regards to timelines. I really don’t know where we would be right now without Lorna, just to know she is at the end of the phone/email with her calming personality goes a very long way.

I would not hesitate to recommend this wonderful lady to anyone, which I have already done many times over.

Wendy and Neil Feather 

We found Lorna through a business friend on the internet and asked for help and advice over several matters including applying for our Carte De Sejours for us when we made the permanent move from Uk to France in 2021.  Lorna was incredibly helpful, friendly, understanding and so so easy to deal with.  Her charges are very fair indeed, affordable and manageable,  and she completely took away all the hassle and worry of dealing with the very bureaucratic French system, which of course involves tons of paperwork, and is not always the easiest to understand, especially when you don’t speak the language and you’re only taking lessons, so are at a pretty basic level.  Lorna was quick, efficient, incredibly helpful and very straight forward to understand and work with.  She was a breath of fresh air for us, not only with actually  undertaking legal matters for us, but also explaining and taking the time to talk us through some general questions we had about the French system.  Her patience is second to none and we would have been incredibly lost without her help.  I would highly highly recommend her services for help for Brits in France making the move or just for general questions that need honest answers about all things France.  I myself continue to use her services and I would definitely recommend her to all.   No question too silly and she never made us feel incompetent.  All in all a wonderful service of the highest calibre with that personal touch for individual care and patience.  5* all the way.


I would like to thank you for all your help in securing my VISA. Due to the information, you gave me and the list of documents I needed to take with me, I was able to go through the whole process without any problems. This took all the stress out of dealing with everything.

You have been supportive and professional throughout and your knowledge has been invaluable, guiding me through the process, what I needed to do and when.

I will be using your services for the next part of residency and for registering my vehicles.

Many thanks

Nikki and Tim Kennett

Myself and my husband have been using Lorna’s services for the last year or so to help with a variety of translations and sorting out several issues we had with our house bills and correspondence which with our French speaking skills were not able to manage ourselves. She has contacted companies on our behalf and resolved problems that were causing us a great deal of stress. She has always responded promptly and dealt with all the work we have sent her diligently. Her services have been invaluable, I just wish we had found her sooner! I have no hesitation to recommend her.

Ross and Sue Mckinlay

It wont come as a surprise to anyone that dealing with bureaucracy in a foreign country can be very daunting and frustrating! What is a surprise is when you find someone who can resolve the problems for you! Lorna is that person. She is knowledgeable, efficient, tenacious and honest and we couldn’t have done it without her. Merci Beacoup!

Highly recommended and Great people. Lorna cannot do enough for you.

Dee and Nick Franks

Both Nick and I would like to thank you (Justine) for the professional and bespoke services you have provided in enabling us to gain residency, our carte Vitale, tax return and many other government documentation that we required in a very short space of time.
Moving from the UK during very strict lockdown rules, battling the Brexit deadline and starting our young girls in school in a foreign country was a huge headache in itself but trying to get all the paperwork sorted was a breeze with your assistance.
You were fantastic and we can’t thank you enough.
Warmest regards,
Dee and Nick Franks

Stevie Tease

I would just like to give a massive thank you for your all your support over the past 3 years.

In particular, to name but a few, many thanks for your arrangement and organization of our various carte vitale’s, sejours, domicile’s and artisan professionals.

Without your expert help with fighting our corner for new electric and water installations we would still be living in the 15th century!

Also a big thank you, again, for being so understanding, helpful and professional with regards to our various vehicle legal registration requirements.

I look forward to collaborating with you again in the very near future.

Your quality and professionalism have, and will always be, very much appreciated.

I found Lorna through an enquiry I made for help on Facebook ..I needed information on registration for siret, carte vitale , carte gris, residency plus numerous other enquiries which she has always helped with..we have never met but she is a friend, professional, approachable , confident and explains so clearly and is always helpful and if she felt I could tackle things on my own she said so! Her advice has been amazing, I have passed her details onto friends who have struggled for years , her knowledge and help has been second to none…I have no hesitation in saying how helpful she has been..and wish her even more success.


We were introduced to Lorna when we first moved to France, trying to battle through the red tape of purchasing a house in France and applying for residency before the Brexit, plus Covid lockdowns and travel restrictions.

From the very first chat with Lorna, she calmed me down, and took away all the stress that my muddled mind was experiencing. I felt quite relaxed after I had spoken to her, I nicknamed her Mrs G&T!

She got us through a difficult Carte Vitale application, as I am divorced, and my birth certificate and marriage certificate were handwritten, so we had to use a translation service and she kept us updated at all times.

She explained everything that we needed to do, and where she could, she did it for us, not only for the Carte Vitale and Titre de Sejour, but anything in general that we did not understand – we must have drove her mad, but she was always happy to speak to us and was helpful where she could be, additionally she is  available, kind and considerate, Her rates are very reasonable, and from the onset she let us know what to expect in the way of costs.

Now that we have our Carte Vitale and Titre de Seour, we will very soon be approaching her for the vehicle registrations.

We found it very confusing and stressful with the move, however having someone like Lorna on your side, who you can trust is a tremendous weight lifted.

Justine was fantastic. she turned a massive headache of a situation into a calm solution so quickly we are so grateful.
Professional, efficiently and with a sense of humour. our headache went away as if it had never been there.
We are currently overseas and she help by sorting through paperwork, translation and authorities like a charm!
Thankyou Admin Ace we are very grateful and highly recommend

Neil Rose

Little did I know, on a bleak December evening,  leaving my house in The U.K. forever, the French dream I was embarking on, would also include a goodly amount of nightmares, predominantly in the form of French paperwork and Bureaucracy, prior to leaving, and after my arrival, I enlisted the help of a number of different ‘hand holders’, unfortunately, when things got very difficult they simply let go, and I stumbled and fell.
I was,  by chance, very fortunate to have been put in touch with Lorna, within a very short period my fortunes changed dramatically and the various ‘mountains’ I had to climb had been reduced to small hills by Lorna’s professionalism, knowledge and tenacity.
Two processes, which are generally, relatively simple were at times looking impossible, however, Lorna found different approaches to tackle these issues and they were successfully resolved, it cannot be overstated, but I firmly believe, had it not been for Lorna and her outstanding commitment to the job that needs to be done, I would not, still be enjoying my French dream.

Elizabeth Nash

Lorna was recommended to me by my Notaire to assist with several important and private matters including resolving issues with our solar panel installers, advising on our funeral insurance policies and liaising with medical establishments to settle ongoing billing issues to name just a few.  She has attended legal meetings with me to act as a translator on my behalf.   I have found Lorna to be efficient, discreet and supportive throughout our relationship.  She is always prompt to respond and tackles each new challenge with enthusiasm and professionalism.  Highly recommended.

Margaret Clayton

Dear Justine and team, thank you for all your support this year. You certainly took a lot of the pressure off our shoulders in a very stressful year. Who on earth would consider moving from the UK to France in the midst of a pandemic and the major changes due to brexit, lol

Maria and Andrew Babbington

Moving to France can be so daunting, particularly with a young family. Lorna has provided help and support to us from the beginning, with every aspect of our transition from starting a business, applying for our carte de sejour and even attending appointments with us to translate. I couldn’t recommend her services enough. On top of her expertise Lorna always has time for you, and is both professional, and friendly. We wouldn’t use anyone else

John and Poppy

“My wife and I had many sleepless night when we first came to France reading through the legal processes for the documentation needed to reside here, and are so happy we chose Lorna to take on fully the task for all of our needs, including Residency, Health / CPAM, Tax Registration, plus a few other things such as Vehicle Registration.
She has a very in-depth knowledge of the legal system in France and knows the correct route to take regarding any enquiries we had, plus when talking to the authorities, they all acknowledge Lorna’s applications for her clients are always completed correctly and on-time.
We put 100% assurance in Lorna’s abilities and her work is strictly confidential, we still use her for many other on-going matters as there is always some new developments which needs someone with Lorna’s skills to deal with these for us, we certainly highly recommend her to anyone who needs legal / advice help for all matters for working / living in France, we now sleep much easier knowing our enquiries are being handling in confidence and in a professional manner by her”.

My name is Shan Roberts.. I was thankfully given Lorna’s contact details last year, what a lucky day that was for me….

I went to meet up with Lorna with 5 different “French admin” problems, one of which had been going on for nearly 5 years… I was very much pulling my hair out trying to get things sorted..

My admin problems that needed sorting were….

*Cpam health care carte vitel, the 5 year problem.

* Registration of an English car with no proof of entry to France before Brexit

* 2 separate applications for Carte De Séjour (with missing health care cover)

* New addition to a “siret number”

I had already been to 2 other “helping hand” services with not much luck…

I had only been sitting with Lorna for around 30 minutes when she had already started to get to the bottom of my long term problem…

Within a matter of a few short weeks all my issues were sorted (hallelujah).. all boxs ticked at last ..

A couple of main things that you get from Lorna is, speedy full communication at all times, total calmness, in turn giving you full confidence that things “will get sorted” and very much “peace of mind”….


I can’t recommend Lorna enough if you have things that need sorting….


A massive “thank you” from both of us….
