It is not uncommon for many people to discover inconsistencies when gathering family documents for jure sanguinis. There may be many types of discrepancies including date and place differences or misspellings and Americanizations of names in birth, marriage, death and even naturalization documents.
Italian consulates in the U.S. require that your American documentation line up with your original Italian documents. If you discover inconsistencies in your documents, we advise you to take care of them as quickly as possible before your jure sanguinis appointment.
Getting your documents amended
If you find you are unable to amend any documents, it is advisable to contact your local Italian consulate immediately to see what they will accept. We have had clients successfully pursue Italian citizenship with notarized statements in lieu of document amendments.
Once your documents have been amended, obtain apostilles, Italian translations and submit them at your appointment.

Since 2005, we've been helping people achieve their dream of obtaining their Italian passport or living, working and studying in Italy.
