Re: I'd really like to Jur Sangunis

You have your work cut out for you. Obtaining citizenship Jure Sanguinis is a labor-intensive process. When you also need to document “no-naturalization” and correct major discrepancies, it becomes considerably more difficult. That being said, some of the problems may not be so major. For example, t...

Re: Thinking about Jure Sanguinis

Hard to tell; depends on the consulate.

Re: Thinking about Jure Sanguinis

Most consulates require death records. They can also recommend translators.

Re: Thinking about Jure Sanguinis

Also, all US-issued documents must be in long form, apostilled and translated. From NY:

Re: Thinking about Jure Sanguinis

Yes you qualify, and this process can be completed at the Italian consulate serving your area of residency. You will need considerably more documentation than you currently possess and will likely need to reorder some documents to obtain the necessary apostilles. Check your consulate’s website for a...

Re: No clear advise from Luigi Paiano

Luigi Paiano specializes in court cases regarding 1948 issues. The courts will not hear cases that can be handled at the consulate level. If yours is not a lawsuit situation, but you choose to apply in Italy, there are several services that can assist you.

Re: Jure Sanguinis Eligibility through great grandparents

BTW, your son would qualify even if he were over 18. That he is still a minor means that he is able to piggyback off your application, and one application means one fee. The documents needed are the same.

Re: what translations needed at Miami Consulate

It does seem confusing, but the first paragraph should be your guide. Ascendent documents should also be translated; the apostilles do NOT require translations.

Re: Trying to get Citizenship, Can wife and child acquire through me?

When you apply, you add your minor child to your application, and she obtains citizenship when you do. You register at the consulate the birth of any children born after your recognition, and they become citizens as well. Your wife can apply for citizenship through marriage after you are recognized....

Re: Re-acquisition of citizenship & dual citizenship questions

To explain further, the reason you can begin with your father is that his naturalization documents specify exactly the citizenship he formerly held and the date he lost it. That’s exactly what you need. The consulate doesn’t really care HOW he obtained Italian citizenship; the fact that he held it i...

Re: Re-acquisition of citizenship & dual citizenship questions

Generally, you begin with the ancestor who naturalized. That would be your father. This simplifies the process for you, and your father can also easily reacquire. As OR has explained, the process begins with the consulate and requires a residency of considerably less than one year. 😀

Re: Jure Sanguinis - Ancestor Born Before Unification

If your ggf was born in what later became Italy, he became an Italian citizen at the time of reunification. That’s not a problem.

None of the consulates are particularly helpful. You’re pretty much in your own.

Re: Multiple variations of a name...what to do?

Joe and Joseph are translations of Giuseppe so that should not be a problem at most consulates. The vowel discrepancies on the various documents are minor and, especially on the naturalization records, the date and other pertinent data should make up for the lack of vowel consistency. No guarantees,...
