Citizenship by Marriage
With citizenship by marriage there are two categories - before 1983 and after 1983. After 1983 is more complex and requires FBI background checks as well as background checks from all the states the petitioner has lived in since the age of 14 - we request these. Once all the documents are collected, we navigate with the petitioner an on-line registration (in Italian) that must be completed and followed by the scanning of all necessary documents to the Italian Ministry.
Re-acquisition of Italian Citizenship
We collect all necessary documents from the client, and send those with a letter (written in Italian) to the Consulate of Jurisdiction before the appointment at the Consulate. We prepare the client for the appointment by packaging the documents necessary for the Consulate.
Translations & Notary Services
We translate Italian documents to English and English documents to Italian.
