Passing citizenship to wife and stepkids

Postby blinko1 » Wed Feb 22, 2012 2:44 pm

I am an Italian citizen through Jure Sanguinis and got married two years ago in the US. I am wondering how long I must wait before I can apply for citizenship for my wife. I know that if you have children it is half the normal time but does that apply to her having children that are not mine? If not then I can apply next year. My step daughter will be turning 17 3 months after our third anniversary and 18 15 months after. Does my wife's application date count as my daughter's or do we have to apply for her after my wife's citizenship goes through. I am hoping that there is some strategy to ensure that both my children gain citizenship through my marriage to my wife since we will be living in Italy full time in a few years.
