Re: I'm adopted ... does that make a difference?

Dear Em, I have a certified copy of the document on record in the Archives of the City of NY. It has the same number as the number of my birth certificate with my adoptie parents' name. It was Apostilled, and the consulate has it. They are writing Italy to determine if I can qualify through my natur...

Re: I'm adopted ... does that make a difference?

I just wanted to add new information to this thread. The "adoption" thing is not so simple. Unfortunately for me, using my birth certificate with my adoptive parents' names resulted in them translating small print which indicated an adoptive situation. It is true that the new law passed in...

Re: Amending Vital Records of Deceased in NYC

Records in the Municipal Archives cannot be changed. I tried this route. Court Orders may help. It is not so difficult, but since they are so old, it probably will not work. I did change names on both my parents' death certificates. However, they were relatively new, one in l998 and one in 2005. The...

It does make a difference, depending upon when you were adopted.

Re: Before I go to the embassy... some questions

Believe me, before you go through the trouble to get Italian citizenship for adopted children, do some real checking. The things that you are reading on the Internet are not all true.

Re: Italian Greatgrandfather married American

Just wanted to clarify this "adoption" thing. First, the Washington Consolate site says that if the adopted person is no longer a minor, they can elect to become citizens after 5 years of living in Italy. This is positively false. The New Law for Citizenship l992 does talk about adult adop...

Re: I'm adopted ... does that make a difference?

This whole thing about adoption is not so simple. In April of 2008, I was told that as an adopted child (I'm now 62), adopted by Italiani per Nascita (both my adopted parents), I could apply through my grandfather Michele Rubino. However, they told me I would have to obtain my original birth certifi...

Just to remind you. Check the birth certificate to see if there is anything in it that relates to adoption. By this I mean even some obscure small print.

adoption

Hi, Believe me guys, this is not an easy process. Back in 2005 when I first went to the consolate in NY and asked one of the officials about doing this, they discouraged me. However, the then consul general Badini told me that it can be done. It is an unbelievable bureaucratic hassle that they reall...

adoption

Hi, You need to get all the usual documents apostilled, plus you will need a copy of your stepson's birth certificate before he was adopted apostilled and a copy of the order of adoption apostilled. Both these documents need to have a certified translation into Italian, and they need to be apostille...

a little paragraph

Hi, On the NY Birth Certificate of Adopted Children, even though it doesn't say, "adpoted," there is a little paragraph that refers to administrative code which indicates that you are adopted. When they translated this paragraph, they looked it up in the NYCP code and found it. Thus,the ne...

adoption

Hi, My situation is a little different, but I could have applied using your method. My natural mother was an Italian citizen at the time of my birth. However, my Italian-American parents, actually my father, never renounced his right to Italian citizenship through my grandfather. I have one document...

Court Order

Hi Peggy, I also got my certificate of no appeal myself. I've been to the NY Supreme Court office for pro se actions, and I've got all the forms. I just thought that someone in our group would have done one of these things. Actually, I need my original birth certificate (I was adopted). I've gotten ...
