Professional Services You Can Trust!
We guarantee professional services to help you prepare your Italian citizenship application according to the published guidelines of the Italian government sources. All of your documents are kept strictly confidential.
Many people are concerned with the high fees associated with hiring a private accompany to assist with their applications. Our professional fees are fair and reasonable and services are provided by highly skilled team members. It is our custom to charge a flat fee rather than an hourly rate so that clients are aware of the total cost in advance.
We provide a 30 minute phone consultation designed to answer all of your questions regarding eligibility requirements and documents needed for Italian citizenship by descent or through marriage in a clear, succinct manner. The helpful information that you will receive will enable you to move forward in the Italian citizenship application process with clarity and confidence. A summary of the consultation is provided for you after your consultation.

Naturalization Record Search of Italian Ancestor
In adherence to the guidelines outlined by the Italian Consulate, our search for your ancestor’s Naturalization Records is submitted to US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) – Homeland Security to obtain Official Reproductions of the Naturalization Records, or Official Statement of Non-Existence of Records from USCIS in Washington, D.C., the National Archives, and State and County Courts. A search and review of the 1910, 1920, and 1930 U.S. Census Reports and a search for Alien Files are conducted in order to verify your ancestor’s non-naturalization status in the event that he/she never became a US citizen.
