Tolly, my grandmother's birth certificate is not fraudulent. She was delivered by a doctor, not a midwife, and I received the certified birth certificate in person from the state registrar in Albany. I also had to sue them for this supposedly fake document, and the apostilled court order is in the h...

Hi, I had to get a lawyer, if only because I didn't know how to legally initiate the process for pursuing a court order. I'll look over my paperwork to find out for you what you specifically have to do to get a court order. It starts with some sort of court index number to initiate a proceeding for ...

Hi tolly, My great-grandfather arrived in 1903. My grandmother was definitely born in my hometown in New York in 1911, I was able to get the birth certificate and provided it to the consulate. She was the youngest and the only one born in America, the rest were born in Italy before 1903 and were lis...

You certainly have a point there. If I were her, though, I wouldn't mention it unless they asked. I would let them elicit all information from me instead of providing what I think they may need. I'm only saying this because the official only took notice of the cover photo page of my passport, and I ...

Yes, moot if he/she's applying in Spain. But this person gives the impression that they have an appointment coming up in New York, according to their post. Why on earth would this person mention to the NY Consulate that they live in Spain if they have a permanent address in New York? There are many ...

You might have to sue them via a court order. I did. I'll get back to you as soon as I get a chance.

Re: I live abroad.. can I still apply in NYC?

I have a strange question... I am a resident of NY State (I can vote there, my Driver's License is there), however I have been residing with a temporary residence visa in Spain for the past year and a half. I pay taxes there, not in the US. I have a strange paranoia that when I go to my appointment...

Thanks Em. I think I'll wait six months until the end of January, and then I'll give them a call with the guise of asking them if they need anything else from me before processing my application, because I'm moving to Japan in March.

I know, Em. I feel bad about that; I see you post a lot. He definitely deserves better, having to wait so long. They should at least call you if they needed anything more for his application.

Upsetting paradox dealing with qualification

Hi. Some of you have heard my story before, but I'm still looking for a definitive answer to get some closure. I applied for citizenship at the NY consulate in July. I went through my great grandfather (my father's mother's father). My grandfather (my father's father) was born in Italy, but naturali...

I was at the NYC Consulate in July. I didn't bother translating the exemplification letter, the apostilles, or any other little signatory notes attached to any of the documents. They didn't mind at all. I did have the translator write a statement at the bottom of each translation confirming she tran...

Get a court order. I had to do it. I had to practically shove it down their throats at the Albany Office; they almost refused to certify the documents I needed and I told them they'd be in contempt of court. Your lawyer needs to initiate an Article 78 proceeding in the Supreme Court of the State of ...

I had to wait six months for an appointment, I made the appointment in late January. I do fit into that category, although it seems to be at odds with this law I found, stating that the wives of Italian citizens lose their Italian citizenship if their spouses naturalize as Americans before 1975. I'm...

Jure Sanguinis Paradox

Hi, I'm active on other forums, but I joined this one too to get my situation out to as many posters as possible who may have a definitive answer. I went to the NYC Consulate this week. I am claiming citizenship jure sanguinis through my great grandfather, here's a tree for simplicity's sake. Great ...
