Do I have to pay for a first consultation with you?
MY LAWYER IN ITALY® provides a first free consultation with an English-speaking expert in Rome or Orvieto, with no obligation. The consultation will be a video call, or phone call if you prefer.
Which documents do I need?
Dual Citizenship: To apply for Italian dual citizenship you will need: birth and marriage certificates of your Italian-born ancestors from the Italian comune (city hall); death certificates of your Italian-born ancestors, if deceased; naturalization certificates; vital records (birth, marriage, and death certificates) of your family members.
Inheritance: To start inheritance proceedings, My Lawyer in Italy will need your contact details and an official ID document to confirm your identity. In the case of a probate succession, the last will and testament of the deceased will also be required.
How long will my case take?
The length of time a case will take to complete successfully, whether an Italian dual citizenship or inheritance case, depends on the complexity of the matter. Despite the slowness of the Italian legal system, the team at My Lawyer in Italy will use its expertise and experience to help your case move as quickly as possible.

Do I have to travel to Italy?
