Additional Citizenship Questions (3 replies)

I read through the great writeup that MarcosM did on a previous thread about citizenship. I too will do the JS useing my GF, F, ME line. I do have two additional questions- I thought that only if you DO NOT fly directly into Italy that you need to make your presence at the Police station and tell them why you are there for JS and you may need to stay longer than the 90day allowed OR do you have to go to Police station regardless if you fly into Italy direct? I know if you fly into Italy they stamp your American passport but even if I fly direct to Italy I must go to Police Station? Which one is it? Before Residence is allowed you need your Permit to stay? - Permesso de Soggiorno?

Italian Citizenship (2 replies)

Out of curiosity...why has no one on this site used a lawyer to sue for their JS? We have used one for several reasons, the largest being my husband's family "ducks" were difficult to put in their row. We also had to sue under his Mom's side, also for those "ducks" not getting into line. Yes, it was expensive, it has taken about 5 years but we also have people on the ground in Italy, that are Native Speakers and are experienced Citizenship. We are able to ask questions and track the case on the Italian Court website. It seems as if this would eliminate all the uncertainty most people have seeking their citizenship.

US SSDI (4 replies)

When we move to Italy we will already have obtained our (the Royal OUR) citizenship and passports, we have been looking at property and, hopefully, will have all of our ducks in the proverbial row. The one sticking point is that I am on SSDI and have been for several years, are there any tips for how to have that designation continue once we have relocated? Thanks!
