Yes, you can potentially become an Italian citizen if your spouse’s ancestors were Italian through the process of Italian citizenship by marriage. If your spouse has obtained or can claim Italian citizenship jure sanguinis (by right of blood), and you meet the necessary marriage duration requirements set by Italian law (typically 2 years of marriage if residing in Italy, or 3 years if residing abroad, with reductions possible for couples with children), you may be eligible to apply for Italian citizenship yourself. The process involves a series of legal steps and documentation, including proving the Italian ancestry, the marriage’s validity, and your spouse’s citizenship status.

As you trace your Italian ancestry back to the person born in Italy (e.g parents >>  grandparents >> great grandparents, etc.) is one of your ancestors a woman? If so, you should still be eligible to be recognized as an Italian Citizen, but you need to contact us to discuss the details of the process.

Prior to 1948, Italian women did not have the right to pass on citizenship to their children. There are special procedures that must be followed to have you recognized as an Italian citizen. Contact us for details.

The Italian Consulates in the U.S. are authorized to process citizenship applications. Typically there is around a 3 year wait to get your first appointment and plan on an additional couple of years for the Consulate to process your paperwork. So, expect the Consulate process to take 5-7 years.

Note that you can not process a 1948 case via the Consulate. These cases can only be processed via the Italian Court System in Italy.

There are better options than using the Consulate. Contact us to learn more.

Yes, your spouse can become an Italian citizen once you complete the Italian citizenship process. After obtaining Italian citizenship through descent, marriage, or naturalization, you can apply for your spouse to gain citizenship as well. This process involves meeting certain requirements, including a period of legal marriage and, in most cases, a language proficiency test.

The length of time varies, but this will typically be a several year process. The process changed in July of 2022 to include local jurisdictions, which may speed up the process. Plan on the document acquisition phase taking about a year, then the court process taking an additional 1-3 years.

We are not able to speak for the Italian government, but we guarantee that we will not stop working on your case until you are successful. In addition, we perform careful research at the start of the process to ensure your success.
