Joe,

As far as I know, you need to send the letter of non-existence that you received to the USCIS Record Services Branch with a request for certification. The process takes approximately three to twelve months.

Write a follow-up letter (not e-mail) to the comune outlining your initial request. If that doesn’t work, write a letter to the sindaco of the comune explaining that your previous requests have gone unanswered. I hope this helps some. Good luck.

Best,

WOW!!! Why all of the hostility? Please let’s keep this civil. And for God’s sake, please, please no profanity. My children read this board too. I guess the new policy being proposed can be interpreted differently by different people; however, there is no need for personal attacks and profanity. If ...

Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe that you need to get an apostille for the naturalization documents, so you are even closer than you thought. Good luck with the process.

Angela, How long have you been living in Italy now? My family and I are planning on moving there after receiving our citizenship as well. Which area are you living in, and what is the cost of living? Also, you mentioned children. How was the transition into the Italian school system for your childre...

That is simply incredible news! The reason that San Francisco is so backlogged in the first place is that Ms. Stone went to Italy for some time and was not replaced at the consulate. How can this be?

It’s nothing specific. I guess that all of the recent discussions/arguments here regarding the possibility of the Italian government adding a language requirement, coupled with the high number of people applying, has me concerned. I pray that nothing changes in the near future. As much as I want thi...

She responded by e-mail, and she also wrote that she would give me a telephone call a month or so prior to my appointment as a reminder. If you are close to having all of your papers together, I would request the appointment now. That’s what I wish I had done. The end of 2007 is a long time away. I ...

I e-mailed my request to: cittadinanza1.losangeles@esteri.it I received a response about a week later. Keep in mind that they (the consulate staff) go on vacation for most of July and August, so they may be a bit backlogged. Also, you might want to provide an outline to them of how you are eligible ...

Angiolo, Thanks for the clarification. When I was waiting for my documents to arrive I also called the office in Washington. The lady I spoke with was very candid in regards to the problems the agency is facing following its transfer to Homeland Security. From what she told me, chaos abounds. I’m gu...

I’m going through Los Angeles as well and as far as I can tell the translator does not need to be certified. Have you received an appointment with the consulate yet? I requested my appointment several months ago and mine is not until late 2007.

It should be free. You don’t need to send in anything. For more complex cases they may charge you. However, if you provide them with as much information as you have, it shouldn’t be a problem. Also, you should check with your consulate to see if they require the naturalization certificate to be cert...

Again, it depends on the consulate you are applying through. The consulate I am applying through, Los Angeles, DOES require a certified copy from USCIS. Also, people are free to send their requests wherever they wish. I sent mine to Washington, DC, and received the records in about six months. Have ...

I truly wish that had been the case with the consulate in Los Angeles. I was sweating not knowing when or if I would ever receive the certified copy from USCIS. Although it only took them three months, it seemed like an eternity. > FOIA requests are now done in Missouri at Lees Summit. < To be on th...
