Can my British partner move to Switzerland

Hi everyone!

I am new to the Forum and looking for some advice if possible.

I moved to Zurich from the UK on a temporary contract from July 2020 prior to Brexit. I am currently on an EU/EFTA L Permit and currently in a process to extend this. My Partner of 12 years is currently still in the UK, at the time I had a 1 year contract and we were hoping to travel between each country however with Corona this made this impossible.

Now I have been offered an extension to my contract (and also interviewing for another permanent role here) I wanted to know if we get married now with Brexit is it possible to apply for family reunification or is family reunification only possible if we were married before Brexit?

Any help or advice would be helpful

Family reunification is always possible no matter when you got/get married.

Not sure which you'd fall under since Brexit as I don't know what's in the agreement Switzerland and the UK signed regarding UK residents here before the start of 2021. If the latter of the two the main problem may be the L permit since that's down to the authorities to decide whether to allow family reunification or not.
