Below you will find the dif­fer­ent cit­i­zen­ship ser­vices Lo Schi­a­vo Genealog­i­ca offers to clients when prepar­ing their appli­ca­tions for for Ital­ian cit­i­zen­ship via jure san­gui­nis. The own­er of Lo Schi­a­vo Genealog­i­ca is the only board-cer­ti­fied geneal­o­gist offer­ing these ser­vices and has assem­bled a team of high­ly qual­i­fied cit­i­zen­ship spe­cial­ists to make sure all goes smooth­ly dur­ing your cit­i­zen­ship quest.  How does board cer­ti­fi­ca­tion ben­e­fit you? It means that we have proven exper­tise in the field of geneal­o­gy, which can be very use­ful when acquir­ing and locat­ing hard-to-find doc­u­ments. It also means that we abide by a Code of Ethics.



If you already have your doc­u­ments ready and sim­ply need expe­ri­enced eyes to make sure every­thing con­forms to what is required by Ital­ian nation­al­i­ty law and your con­sulate, Lo Schi­a­vo Genealog­i­ca would be hap­py to help you.

Fee: $95 per hour



To help you acquire the doc­u­ments you will need to reac­quire your Ital­ian cit­i­zen­ship, we work on an hourly plus expens­es basis. The fee is $95 per hour and a 10 hour retain­er is required to begin ($950). If the retain­er is exhaust­ed before we are done prepar­ing your doc­u­men­ta­tion, you would be asked for an addi­tion­al retain­er. If you would like to man­age costs by work­ing with us in gath­er­ing your doc­u­men­ta­tion, we can do that.



The doc­u­ment prepa­ra­tion pack­age enables you to sit back and relax while we han­dle every­thing nec­es­sary to get your doc­u­men­ta­tion ready. This is a pop­u­lar option for the busy pro­fes­sion­al who has lit­tle time to work on their doc­u­men­ta­tion!

The fee for the doc­u­ment prepa­ra­tion pack­age does not include out-of-pock­et fees, which can include, but is not lim­it­ed to, doc­u­ment fees and apos­tille fees. Clients will be invoiced for any out-of-pock­et fees once per month. Client agrees to pay such fees with­in 15 days of the receipt of the invoice. In the ini­tial stages of the doc­u­ment prepa­ra­tion, please be aware that month­ly expens­es are nor­mal­ly high­er. Depend­ing on the juris­dic­tion which issues your doc­u­ments, your sig­na­ture may be need­ed on doc­u­ment appli­ca­tions or on a lim­it­ed pow­er of attor­ney, autho­riz­ing us to order doc­u­ments on your behalf.

If it is deter­mined that a doc­u­ment needs to be amend­ed so that your cit­i­zen­ship appli­ca­tion is suc­cess­ful (and legal assis­tance is required), then any legal and court fees are the Client’s respon­si­bil­i­ty.

If a doc­u­ment is need­ed from a coun­try oth­er than Italy or the U.S., it may be nec­es­sary to sub­con­tract a local researcher to acquire the doc­u­ment. The fees for said sub­con­tract­ing would be the Client’s respon­si­bil­i­ty. If this is nec­es­sary, the Client shall be informed ahead of time.

The base fee for doc­u­ment prepa­ra­tion is due upfront. If, dur­ing the course of gath­er­ing your doc­u­men­ta­tion, it is deter­mined that you are not eli­gi­ble for Ital­ian dual cit­i­zen­ship then the fol­low­ing would apply. The time incurred (at $95 per hour) would be cal­cu­lat­ed and any remain­ing amount would be refund­ed to the Client with­in 90 days.

FEE: $4,000  (up to 4 gen­er­a­tions of doc­u­men­ta­tion)      



$50 per hour. We would be hap­py to pro­vide a free esti­mate of the time need­ed to trans­late your doc­u­ments. Our trans­la­tors are native-born Ital­ians with cer­ti­fi­ca­tions that allow them to trans­late doc­u­ments for the Ital­ian court sys­tem (for legal means, like cit­i­zen­ship).
