Living in Italy

My husband and I have rented apartments in Italy and have shopped, prepared food and eaten in hundreds of restaurants. Living in Italy is not expensive if you avoid top sites. For instance, in Matera, an excellent meal with wine is about $45.00 a couple. Buying food is not expensive. Buying paper pr...

NY may be moving along!

Hi all who applied in NY, Today a consular official called me to tell me that my January appointment can be moved up to November. This may mean that they have more personnel, and that they are processing things a little faster. I told her that I had already submitted my documents and had made the ap...

Coppia di fatto

The situation may change in Italy for domestic partnerships and "coppie di fatto", couples who live together and declare they are living exclusively in a "partnership" environment. But for now, they are not entitled to other benefits like health insurance, etc.

Translations

HI, I think he probably means that he wants to review the documents to see that everything is in order. In NY in June, I didn't have to have all my documents translated myself. I guess if everything is in order, they may tell you to have the material translated or if there needs to be some changes m...

Boston

I guess they are really fussy there. Some of the consulates will take an obvious misspelling and won't make a big deal about it. I think San Francisco seems to have a great understanding group of people handling Stato Civile.

Delayed Birth Certificate

Hi Peggy, During my first visit back in 2005 to a Mr. Azzara at NYC, I presented birth and baptismal certificates. Believe or not my father's birth from Our Lady of Mt. Carmel was in Italian and the official title was "Certificato di Battesimo e Nascita'." Mr. Azzara told me that they woul...

missing document

Discepolo, I spoke to my cousins in Italy, one of whom works in the Ufficio Anagrafe. The consensus was that it may be hard to prove lineage without some type of marriage document. She did say that if their names are listed on other documents, perhaps an understanding official would consider it. In ...

StupidYank's problem

Lisotta, This is really a tough one. On the NY consulate sight, it says that you really do not need to get INS documents apostilled. However, when you go to the consulate, itself, you get conflicting opinions. Here is an address that I wrote to when I had to send back an illegible Naturalization Cer...

certified copy

Lisotta, You are correct. As backup to the copy of the Naturalization certificate and letter with the raised seal from Michael Quinn, I went to the Courthouse in Brooklyn and got a certified copy of the petition and further had it exemplified by a judge of the Court. I didn't need to submit it, but ...

approved translators

Hi Peggy, Yes, they handed me a list of approved translators for my divorce info. When I submitted my documents in June of this year, they did not ask me to have all the other documents translated too. This may have changed. Actually, when I first read the change on their website in April of this ye...

Status of Application

Dear Roberto, NYC has stated not to call for status of application, only to notify them in writing of any change of phone number or address. I am dying to find out what they are doing with my application and whether or not they have translated and sent the documents to my comune. Before I went to th...

Exemplification

Hi Peggy, You could be right on that. It wasn't exemplified, but I wasn't even up to that point yet with the consulate. Their directions, however, indicate that Albany was the recognized office outside NYC. Anyway, I got my2nd marriage certificate sent from Albany, and the NYC Clerk certified it, an...

marriage certificates

I guess you were lucky. I brought this Suffolk Cty. document the lst time I went to the consulate, and they wouldn't take it. But I will tell you that I think things might be changing there. Hopefully, they are getting a little less severe. Good luck!!

Italain Health Care

Hi wwheeler, In which consulate did you apply? As far as health care in Italy, it is not exactly free, but available to all Italian Citizens and, I think, legal residents. If you are working in Italy, you pay into it, just like you do for SS here. And your employer contributes also. I'm pretty sure ...
