I am at my wits end and cannot get an answer from the Italian Consulate in NY nor from my representative's office.
My husband is applying for dual Italian citizenship in category one.
His mother's papers show five different names: Josie, Josepine, Josephine with her maiden name, Josephine with her first husband's surname, and Josephine with her second husband's surname. The NY Italian Consulate insists that the names be identical. It insists that the papers be amended. The city and state Vital Records Departments and the local Probate Judge will not amend them.
Also, one birth date is off by one day and one death date is off by one year.
Also on one of the birth certificates the birth surname was originally misspelled but the father's incorrect surname spelling was not corrected.
I have asked the Italian Consulate several times who or what office can amend the certificates but have yet to receive an answer. I cannot go any further with this until I know how to proceed.
Does anyone know who can amend incorrect certificates?
Thanks for a reply.
