dual citizenship question re 1948

Postby stacyann98 » 08 Feb 2016, 18:20

Hi, I am looking for some answers to help me with my Italian citizenship through Jus Sanguines.

GGF-->GM-->F-->me

GGF, born in Italy, arrives in USA 1904, naturalized 1938
GM, born in USA 1921, (17 when GGF naturalized), gives birth to son 1949
F born 1949
me

I have a company telling me I need a court order to re-establish GM citizenship since she was born before 1948 (in 1921). But I think they may be wrong , as she was born before GGF naturalized? Is a court order necessary?

I saw this in another thread on here "A person born before 01/01/1948 can claim Italian citizenship only from his/her father (who was not a naturalized citizen of another country before his/her child’s birth), and a woman can transfer citizenship only to her children born after 01/01/1948 (if she was not a naturalized citizen of another country before her child’s birth)."

based on that I would think she is automatically an italian citizen, never renounced it, and passed it rightlfully to her son(my father).

You are absolutely correct. Your gm obtained Italian citizenship from her Italian father and passed on to her son, born after 1948. Yours is a straightforward application; no need to reestablish citizenship.
