Legalities for Your Italian Wedding
One of the key concerns regarding a destination wedding is the legal paperwork involved. Getting married in Italy does involve some paperwork and the requirements are dependent on your nationalities.
Putting together the paperwork can be confusing however I will guide you through any that you need to complete in your home country and assist you with all legally required paperwork in Italy.
My personal knowledge and experience in processing your documentation you can rest assured that, when it comes to your wedding in Italy, everything is going to be perfect.
Atto Notorio is only required for US and Australian Citizens.
An Atto Notorio (Sworn Affidavit) is an affidavit to be done prior the wedding in an Italian Consulates in Australia or in the US. You can also opt to do your Atto Notorio in Italy. We will be happy to book an appointment for you.
In order to get your Atto Notorio you must do a declaration relative to the civil status in front of the Italian Consulate with two witnesses (provided by you): set an appointment with the nearest Italian Consulate to where you live.
In case you would opt to do your Atto Notorio in Italy we will also provide you the witnesses and we will handle all legalities, appointments and interpreter.
In order to get your Atto Notorio you should be able to provide the following documents:
- Birth certificate (it has to be translated into Italian and apostilled)
- Divorce decree or death certificate (If previously divorced/widowed): they have to be translated and apostilled.
- Italian translations of all of the above
- Please note that at the top of the page of the Atto Notorio the detail " Repubblica Italiana" and "Consolato Generale D'Italia" are specifically written, otherwise the Atto Notorio is not valid.
- TRANSLATIONS have to be authenticated by the Italian Consulate.
