The My Italian Family Story
Our Roots start in Italy; in the year 2000. My Italian Family® was launched offering genealogy research services as well as assistance with documentation required to apply for Italian citizenship. With a strong understanding of the history of both Italy and the U.S. as well as knowledge of where documents are stored and how to navigate Italian and U.S. public offices, we have developed the resources to get results. Our team has a proven track record of successfully assisting clients in obtaining dual citizenship and is always available to help those in need, regardless of where they are in their citizenship journey.
How My Italian Family Works
We begin by performing free preliminary research to determine whether there is a qualifiable path to Italian citizenship by descent. This is done with the applicant through a FREE Consultation where we research various databases to find their ancestor's exact town of origin and determine if and when the Italian-born ancestor became a U.S. citizen. This crucial first step will help us determine if there is a path to citizenship for you.
Once we have established that you have a path to Italian citizenship, we can move forward with the process! Our range of professional assistance services includes full-service options that take all the stress out the process for you as well as advisory services for the do-it-yourselfers. Based on our preliminary research, we can help you determine which service would be the best for your unique situation!
What My Italian Family Can Do For You
For applicants who may not have the time or desire to go through the lengthy and complex legal process, we can complete the entire process for you. We call ourselves the “Real Italian Citizenship Assistance” because we are the ONLY company to offer a complete "Start-to-Finish" program to prepare your entire application including:
- Purchasing all the documents from both Italy and the U.S. following the requirements of the Italian Consulate that has jurisdiction over the State where you reside here in the U.S., the Italian Town Hall where you are taking permanent residency, or the Italian Courts
- Reviewing and auditing your document portfolio to identify all the inconsistencies in names, dates, and locations
- Addressing potential discrepancies with either amendments or additional documents
- Affixing the apostilles
- Translating US vital records to Italian
But that's not all! Our complete "Start-to-Finish" program also includes:
- Assistance with completion of all the Consular Application Forms
- Reviewing how to successfully conduct your appointment with the Italian Consulate
What If I've Already Started The Process?
For applicants who have already started to collect some of the vital records (from either Italy or the US) on their own but are stalled or do not have time to continue the process, we also offer our “Collaborative” Italian Citizenship program known as the “Take me to the Finish Line” program.
This hybrid program includes auditing all the records you have already procured to determine if the documents (Italian Vital Records, Naturalization Proof Documents, and US Vital Records) are complete, issued in the right format, and properly certified if there are any missing documents, and if there are discrepancies in names, dates of birth and place of birth that need to be corrected.
Based on the findings we provide you with a plan to "take to you the finish line" which includes:
- Acquiring the additional required documents from both Italy and the U.S.,
- Processing the suggested corrections and amendments of U.S. vital records (if necessary).
- Affixing all the Apostilles to all the required U. S. documents
- Translating all the required US documents to Italian.
For applicants who are do-it-yourselfers (or planning to be) and may have questions related to the Italian Citizenship qualification requirements and/or documentation needed to be presented to the Italian Consulate, to the town hall in Italy, or to the Italian Courts for 1948 Cases, My Italian Family offers several paid Zoom/Phone Telephone Consultations to assist you throughout the process.
When choosing the service that is right for you, please remember that to be successful you must fulfill all the qualification requirements and present a complete and consistent (no discrepancies) document portfolio. This is the rule with no exceptions.
There is only one professional Italian dual citizenship assistance company that has a proven track record, an expert team, and two decades of experience, and we are very proud to say that it is My Italian Family®.
