Applying jure sanguinis via my GF and F. Went to my appointment in the blizzard! The official had responded to my email the night before and said to come in as early as possible. Took the bus from Seacoast New Hampshire to South Station. Arrived at Consulate across the street just before they opened at 9:00am. (My original appointment was at 11:15 am). He met with me soon after. I took the 11:00 bus back (last bus was at noon.). He said it would take "months" to process and I would have time to get the additional documents. Can communicate by email now.

2. Divorce decree (translated) and statement of final/no appeal divorce, even through my ex-husband is deceased.

4. Applicable forms filled out from Consulate website.
1. I used the spreadsheet tracking form, modified for my situation. Posted on this forum under forms. Thanks for posting.
My children will be applying after me, so I will request 3 copies of each form from Italy, since they each live in U.S. states covered by Italian consulates. Next to follow-up ...
