You should also provide a list of burning questions that you would like to discuss during the call.
If you would like to order the Document Review Consultation, you will need to scan and email to us all the documents you have already acquired (we prefer to set up a dropbox.com folder for you to privately upload copies of your docs for us to read), including a list of all your specific questions along with a Family Chart ahead of the Telephone Consultation call. We will ask you to fill out a form with your family information and return it to us ahead of your Telephone Consultation along with a day and time that works for you.

Things to know before you buy
The consultation fee will be charged regardless of the conclusions drawn after evaluating your situation. Each individual case is different and may or may not lead to Italian dual citizenship. If you have ordered the $200 Analysis & Planning Consultation PLUS and we discover you don't qualify for Italian Dual Citizenship based on the current requirements, you will only be charged for the $100 Q&A Consultation. If you have ordered the $500 Ongoing Support Consultation, you are pre-paying six (6) 30-minute phone sessions; should you choose to drop out for any reason, we will refund the unused session fees.
The application must be submitted PERSONALLY to the Italian consulate having territorial jurisdiction for the State in which you reside -- not the one where you were born. It is not possible to delegate a lawyer to process your application with any Italian Consulate.
