Re: Italian War Bride 1945

My observation is that your case is most probable of success if your birth (and thus your mother's naturalization too) came on or after 1 January 1948.

For situations where the petitioner's birth to an Italian mother was before this date, outcomes in court have varied.

Re: Italian War Bride 1945

Your mother was not automatically an American citizen by marrying in 1945. Your mother could not lose Italian citizenship by any of her preparations to naturalize. Only the oath could alter her Italian citizenship status. Here is where you might be better off with the expertise of an Italian lawyer:...

Re: My mother has dual citizenship do I?

There could be a case of dual citizenship for the OP if the mother naturalized, and later married the father, who naturalized after the marriage. A foreign woman marrying an Italian citizen acquired Italian citizenship automatically. The citizenship of an Italian wife did not terminate automatically...

Re: Born Out of Wedlock / Still eligible?

Receiving your acknowledgment of Italian citizenship is typically a difficult thing to do, but it is possible to do. It involves much diligence and patience, and sometimes a large commitment of money to purchase the vital records. I would start by contacting Italy for your grandparents' birth certif...

Re: Born Out of Wedlock / Still eligible?

It looks as if you qualify for the Italian-American dual citizenship. Your father must have been born in the United States. Then, your father must not have altered his citizenship before you were born. If your father altered his citizenship after you were born, then there are more things to consider...

Re: Father has dual citizenship

You could possibly have a proper claim to Italian citizenship if your mother naturalized before she married your father, and your father naturalized after they were married. In that case, your mother's Italian citizenship would have been renewed by the fact of their marriage. Your mother's Italian c...

Re: Question From South Africa Do Illegitimate Children Qualify

It seems to me that the Italian consulates are charged with maintaining vital records on all children of Italian citizens born outside Italy, who are reported to them. The consulate also transmits these vital records to municipalities in Italy. There may be an Italian city with her birth certificate...

Re: Mother born in Italy/Italian mother and U.S. citizen father

First, I'll asume that your mother's father was not a dual citizen of the U.S. and Italy. In that case, you could only qualify if your mother was born after the year 1947, and if her mother was an Italian citizen at the time of your mother's birth. Now, if your grandfather was a dual citizen of Ital...

Re: Dichiarazione Sostitutiva Dell'Atto Di Notorieta; What?

Hello. I think that the phrase "dichiarazione sostitutiva dell'atto di notorietà" basically translates as "declaration which substitutes a public document". In other words, a document on which a person states something for legal purposes but which is neither notarized nor certifi...

Re: Name discrepancies

I suggest that you keep doing what you can by collecting the papers and the information. You never know what will happen when you push for Italian citizenship by documenting four generations. Name discrepancies are infamously common in this field, and the consulates have a certain level of acceptanc...

Re: Do I Qualify?

You could qualify if your father married your mother while he had Italian citizenship, provided that the wedding was before 1983, your birth was later than 1947, and your mother did not naturalize anywhere in the world between her wedding date and your date of birth.

Re: Carta d'identità

I believe that every citizen newly recognized through a consulate is given a codice fiscale in the process. My stato civile registration at my comune includes my codice fiscale. I can view my registration using the comune's web portal. Either the comune or the consulate should be able to let you kno...

Re: Experts, Your Opinion Please

It looks like it works, but remember: Your grandmother's citizenship must not have been altered by your grandfather's naturalization, or any other event until after your mother's birth. In the United States, such a scenario would usually imply that you can have Italian citizenship. That is because a...
