Re: Referrals for Assistance with JS Application

You can use VitalCheck to get most of your US documents. I think they are also expensive, but they make life easier. Definitely, get apostilles yourself. A service is much more costly.

I used avepally at fiverr for translations. Great translations, reasonably priced, and fast turnaround.

Re: New 1912 Rule Controversy

Someone posted this experience on Facebook and on Tapatalk.

Keep in mind, though, that no one has yet been rejected outright, and 1948 lawyers seem to still be accepting cases with these date issues. Also, no negative reports from comuni.

This issue has yet to be resolved.

Re: New 1912 Rule Controversy

I’ve heard about this as well. We saw something similar happen several years ago when SF began turning down applicants whose ancestors had naturalized before 1912. Soon that interpretation was accepted at all the consulates. This new interpretation seems to be in the early stages, and there is no ce...

Re: 1948 Rule. Am I disqualified?

OR, you are absolutely correct. If the father is applying, however, he would have no choice but to use the 1948 approach, and his child could certainly apply with him without demonstrating alternative approaches. I hesitate to mention this because it may cause some anxiety, but perhaps someone here ...

Re: 1948 Rule. Am I disqualified?

If, your gf was still an Italian citizen when Lillian was born and your father was born before 1948, you have a 1948 case. You don’t have enough information about your mother’s line at this point to determine qualification. Since your parents married before 1983, if your father’s citizenship is reco...

Re: Eligibility: Being Born a Dual IT-US Citizen via Derivative US Citizenship

The only problem I see is that your gf obtained his citizenship jure sanguinis, not jus soli. I don’t know how this affects your eligibility, but since his father never naturalized, it may be ok. The Certificate of Citizenship may raise questions at the consulate because it is further evidence that ...

Re: Interesting JS case- Do we have a shot?

From what I’ve read, before the 1907 Expatriation Act, a US-born woman did not lose US citizenship when she married a foreigner. That was US law. Italian law at the time said the wife acquired the citizenship of the husband (so, in a sense, both countries considered her to be a citizen). She then lo...

Re: Interesting JS case- Do we have a shot?

That's why you should take the time to contact several of the 1948 attorneys with specifics of your case. They will let you know if they have had success with similar cases and, if so, what documents would be required. If I recall correctly, there have been several successful cases of this nature. O...

Re: Interesting JS case- Do we have a shot?

That’s true, but in any of the three scenarios, her Italian citizenship was the only citizenship she held on the date she married since her husband was an Italian citizen at the time. When he naturalized, she lost that citizenship automatically.

Re: Interesting JS case- Do we have a shot?

Since she married an Italian man, she acquired Italian citizenship at that time. (Or she may have even had Italian citizenship earlier through her father.) In any case, she lost Italian citizenship automatically when her husband naturalized. Since she did not herself renounce or naturalize (she coul...

With the informant provided by Biff, you can contact NARA to obtain all the pre-naturalization documents.

Re: Looking for Great Grandfather's birth certificate

Not necessarily. The Declaration of Intent was then followed by the Petition, then naturalization. You need to check further. Generally several years elapsed before the petition and ultimate naturalization, or he may never have completed the process. If he did naturalize before 1912 but after the bi...
