As a Dually Citizenship Lawyer in NYC, I receive inquiries by citizens of Italian ancestry that wish to obtain Italian American Dual Citizenship.
USA law does not formally recognize dual citizenship, but it does not prohibit it either.
According to the U.S. State Department website, federal law “does not mention dual nationality or require a person to choose one citizenship or another.”
To find out whether you qualify or not for Dual Italian Citizenship, it is often necessary to conduct a comprehensive Genealogy Search.
An Italian passport holder can enjoy the advantages of travelling, working, and retiring in Italy as well as any State of the European Union without all the complicated bureaucracy that would be otherwise required to an American citizen.

Under the jus sanguinis principle, anyone of Italian descent can claim his or her citizenship. It will be considered citizenship at birth, and no pledge of allegiance will be required. The process consists in claiming the right of Italian citizenship.
One crucial step of the process is the documents procurement.
Also, when there are discrepancies in the documents, a One and the Same Court Order is often required by Italian Consulates.
Getting all your ancestors’ records is something that you might be able to do on your own. If you are not ready to pay attorneys’ fee, please refrain from contacting my firm. You can find all the instructions on the Italian Consulate’s website.
