No I didn't. However, I can't tolerate arrogance from anyone.
....and that's fine , however I have seen no arrogance here. Just an ongoing discussion. I feel the same way about un-necessary uncomplimentary personal comments . It does any discussion no good at all & kinda loses the point the instigator was trying to make.

If your children aren't actually resident in France, then I don't see how they can take French citizenship.
It's true that the Administration only accepts EdF, landline, Taxe d'Habitation, etc... as proof of residence, not mobile phone bills. When our DDs needed proof of residence for other reasons (since they are French), I believe we wrote the formula letter and produced our Déclaration de Revenus when they were both still declared as being in our fiscal household. Maybe the Mairie would accept your Déclaration? (since your daughter was minor on 1st January 2016, she would be mentioned on it?).
I'm sorry you've got such unfriendly staff at your Mairie. Let us know what your Maire replies (do you mean you sent your letter LRAR?). He/she might not even be aware of the issue if he wasn't present. There again I'm not defending your 1er Magistrat, but acting as the Devil's Advocate.
Do post again on the France forum, I don't look in the Europe section every day!
P.S. On second thoughts, I'm not sure about EU students outside of France, but with their family settled in France. Some one on the France forum will surely know....
Your children are french citizens - they got it by default when they fulfilled the requirements
https://www.service-public.fr/partic...vosdroits/F295
Tout enfant né en France de parents étrangers acquiert la nationalité française ses 18 ans si, cette date :

il réside en France,
et s'il a eu sa résidence effective et habituelle en France pendant une période continue ou discontinue d'au moins 5 ans, depuis l'âge de 11 ans .)

Being a student doesn't change your home residency.

What you are requesting is a certificate proving french nationality. A bank statement in your kid's name should suffice for proof of address. So, if they don't have a local bank, then I suggest going along to LaPoste and opening one.
