I am Bettina, your Italian Citizenship Consultant. I was born and raised in Bologna, Italy. Today I live between the States and Italy. I came to the United States in 2008 for my husband’s job. Like so many families, we found opportunity, stayed, and became American citizens by 2015. I nevertheless wanted to retain my Italian citizenship, as many would, and began to discover the laws that govern Italian and American dual citizenship.
Soon, I also began working in this field by assisting many American clients with Italian Ancestry in successfully claiming back their Italian Citizenship, or helping their children become dual citizens. The process is complicated. The specialist knowledge of both American and Italian government, administration and laws is essential to ensure a timely and successful outcome. In these years, I have developed a broad understanding of the dual citizenship process. The different laws regulating eligibility, collecting Italian and U.S. vital records, and submission of applications at the Italian consulates, in Italy and the court in Italy are my daily doing.
In our first telephone call, I will go over your family history with you, determine your potential eligibility, and answer any questions you may have about the process (including costs and process times). I provide a preliminary free telephone consultation aimed at determining if you qualify for Italian citizenship. Find out if your case has a good chance of success!
