Start to Finish Program

We have been helping people with their Italian Dual Citizenship Applications for over 15 years. We now offer a "Start to Finish" program that will take you right up to your appointment with the Italian Consulate. We tailor the program to your specific needs; determine if you qualify, research and order all the required Italian and US vital records, acquire certified Naturalization proof documents, translate vital records to Italian, and put together your application portfolio ahead of your Italian Consulate appointment.


This is Stage 1 of our "Start to Finish program" designed for people who are seeking support with their Italian Dual Citizenship Application.


A 60-minute telephone consultation will be conducted by our Italian Dual Citizenship Team.   For over 15 years, senior members of the team have been helping applicants prepare for their Consulate appointments.  For complex situations, we will also turn to our Legal Team who specializes in Italian Dual Citizenship law.


The Analysis & Planning Consultation fee is $200.  Once you submit your order, we will email you directions on preparing and submitting family information prior to the telephone consultation.  We will set up a mutually agreeable time for the 60 minute call to take place.  During the call we will review your entire family tree, determine if you do in fact qualify, establish a pursuit path, and build a personalized list of all required documentation you will need to apply for Italian Dual Citizenship.  We will also answer all your questions and discuss how to overcome any issues or pitfalls that you may encounter.  Each individual case is different and may or may not lead to dual citizenship. You will be charged regardless of the conclusions drawn after evaluating your situation. 

If, after we determine you qualify, and you authorize My Italian Family to continue the "Start to Finish Program", the $200 consultation fee will be credited toward the entire cost of putting together your application


Before we can evaluate whether or not you qualify for Italian dual citizenship jure sanguinis, you must provide:

  • The names of every family member in a direct line between you and your Italy-born Ancestor
  • The dates and locations of birth, marriage, divorce and death events for every family member in a direct line between you and your Italy-born Ancestor
  • Information regarding if and when your Italy-born Ancestor naturalized

We will send you special forms to complete prior to the call so you can provide this information to us.   


The intent is to review your family history against the multitude of criteria set forth by both the Italian Government and the Italian Consulates.

We will identify all required Italian and US documents, pitfalls and missing information will also be discussed.

Outcome:  A personalized plan to pursue Italian Dual Citizenship. You can then make the decision to move to the next stage of the program.

If you already know exactly what you need, you can skip Stage 1 and move on to STAGE 2.
