Do I qualify?

Postby estee7301 » Tue Jul 21, 2009 6:53 pm

I am wondering if I qualify for Italian citizenship. Here is the story...

GGF- born in Italy in 1890s, never naturalized

GM- born in Argentina in 1930s

M- born in Argentina in 1955, became a US citizen through marriage in the late 1970s.

me- born in the US in 1985

My mother says she is a dual citizen within the USA and Argentina still. She has not "renounced" her citizenship to Argentina.

Will I still qualified?

I don't believe it was possible for your mother to obtain US citizenship automatically through marriage. She would have had to naturalize. If she did naturalize, it is possible that she didn't lose her Argentinean citizenship (if Argentine permitted dual citizenship) but she certainly would have lost Italian citizenship.
