Dear Mr Giambrone aren't you asking for three separate documents? if so, you can do this thru a form letter located at and make 3 separate requests since this is an end of day duty for the clerks for all written requests. Further I believe there is a charge for the Certificato di Stato di familgia and they write and let you know what you have to pay so you can send all three together but separately will make it easier for them to separate the free service form the patying service, if any. =Peter=
