Can I file in Italian court using English?

I received a letter from my comune in Bologna saying that my children's names have been changed to conform with Italian law. The letter says I have 30 days to contest this decision in court. It seems kind of harsh, since even though I can understand some Italian, I don't know enough to defend myself...

I believe I misunderstood your original posting. I thought you were referring to a wait AFTER the application is approved in SF (i.e., you receive a letter from the consulate saying your application is complete). In my case, there was a wait AFTER that, so it took a few months my documents to reach ...

my documents went out to my comune in Italy 3-4 months AFTER I received the letter saying my application had been completed. My comune recommended me start applying for an Italian passport. According them, there is no requirement for the documents to be in Italy. They thought this would make the SF ...

Minor children with mother's family name

For personal reasons (my wife's side has no descendents bearing their last name), all my two children have my wife's family name. My citizenship was already recognized, and all papers sent to Italy. However, the comune says they cannot register my children because they bear my wife's family name. Ho...

Tiffany, you are saying it takes 3 months to 2 years to apply for a passport *after* someone receives the approval letter from the consulate?

I was not trying to be unnecessarily negative, just trying to be the "devil's advocate". :twisted: About the processing time, you probably should inquiry the NYC consulate on how they will process your wife's brazilian documents. All this processing may not be transparent to the applicant....

By the way, I just forgot one thing. If you are foreigner living in the US, you will need to provide to the consulate a copy of your "green card" or naturalization certificate. At least, this was a requirement in the SF consulate. The waiting times you see around are based on the assumptio...

I believe it is likely to be 20 years either in NYC or in Brazil. :cry: :cry: The reason is straightforward, as the NYC consulate accepts your wife's papers, they need to send the Brazilian documents back to an Italian consulate in Brazil. Since your wife can only get citizenship after her ancestor ...

Actually, this is the tricky part... The consulate called last November saying that my applicaiton was approved and that as soon as I receive the letter from them, I could start the application for a passport. However, I did not get any letter, and when I contacted again in January they told me &quo...

The consulate in SF told me it would take 10 business days for the documents to reach my family's comune. I am not sure whether this is standard or not.

Naturalized but still a citizen?

I have a simple question. I have a daughter born in 1999. For certain she has both Italian and American citizenship. However, I naturalized US citizen in 2004. I never renounced my Italian citizenship since I was informed it was OK since 2001 to keep the Italian citizenship. (art. 24 of Law n.91 of ...

I would send a fax to the consulate. After doing a web search, this is the fax number for the consulate in SF: Fax 415 931 7205 i am not sure about italian bureaucracy, but it appears to me they must answer in writing any reasonable inquire they receive in writing. If I were you, I would send copies...

I am not a lawyer and this can be a little bit of stretch, but Italian law has a provision for name change if the name indicates "origine naturale" (art. 84 del d.P.R. n. 396/2000) . I am not sure about Davide's family, but if his father or mother was American, he could declare that "...

I don't know about other states, but if someone was born in the state of Washigton and had a legal name change, this person can request a new birth certificate with absolutely no notation whatsoever about the past name. This really makes a compelling case to rectify the record in Italy. Maybe very f...
