HOW SHOULD YOU GET READY FOR THE PHONE CALL?

Before we can evaluate whether or not you qualify for Italian dual citizenship jure sanguinis, you must know:

  • The birth dates of every family member in a direct line between you and your Ancestor from Italy (you should at least know the year)
  • The location of birth, marriage and death events for every family member in a direct line between you and your Ancestor from Italy
  • Information regarding your Ancestor's naturalization

Please have as much of this information as possible ready before we contact you.

,
PLEASE NOTE

The intent is to review your family history against the multitude of criteria set forth by both the Italian Government and the Italian Consulates.

We will identify all required Italian and US documents, pitfalls and missing information will also be discussed.

Outcome:  A personalized plan to pursue Italian Dual Citizenship. You can then make the decision to move to the next stage of the program.

If you already know exactly what you need, you can skip Stage 1 and move on to STAGE 2.

This option is designed for people who have questions related to their situation, i.e. eligibility requirements, advice on how to gather documents, managing misspellings, etc.
