swiss partner and child, I am EU passport, what help/rights

Hello

Thank you for taking the time to read my post, my partner and I live in Australia, he is Swiss, we have a 1 year old daughter, who has been recongised and is now a swiss national.
We are talking about moving to Switzerland as my partner has been unable to find work here in his profession. In order to go, i would have to leave my permanent job and all the stability that goes with it. The moving costs alone would take most of our savings and I would be left solely dependent on my partner.. I do not know German or French. Does anyone know what help if any i would receive in terms of learning the language, job search and not being swiss myself, i assume i would not be entitled to any benefits whilst unemployed. I have always worked and been financially independent.. I have dual nationality so will travel in on my EU passport.

Emlite

Re: swiss partner and child, I am EU passport, what help/rights

Are you married? This will make a difference in how the permits are handled...unless you are a same-sex couple, in which case you need recognition for a civil partnership.

Does your partner have a really good job lined up?

Re: swiss partner and child, I am EU passport, what help/rights

Really? So why were you enquiring about buying some items back in 2012?

BASEL 4058. FOR SALE: womens clothes, vacuume & bath mat

Presumably you were in the country then. For work/study?

To answer your questions, you will receive no help whatsoever. It's up to you to pay for language lessons, find a job, etc. It's also down to your Swiss partner to prove he can support you both when you move here so I hope he has a job lined up.

If you're not married/registered partnership then you should read this:

Note that the law on child custody has now changed and joint custody is the rule.

Presumably they were in or near Basel at that time (over three years ago), though I am not sure what that has to do with the questions today!

Thank you for posting the informative link regarding cohabiting.

Re: swiss partner and child, I am EU passport, what help/rights

Then your partner should apply for a concubine permit for you if you decide to make the move, assuming you don't plan to marry soon. Whether it will allow you to work or not I don't know. You need to contact the canton migration office where you will be moving to, to find out what documentation they'll require.

Or you can come independently, but you will need to prove that you can support yourself financially while you're job hunting.
