Our client, originally from Mexico, lost the right to use her mother’s surname after obtaining the Italian citizenship since, at the time, our legal system did not allow the use of a maternal surname.

Having analysed all the documents provided by our office, we prepared a request to the competent bodies to add the maternal surname.

After thirty days of the decision on the Municipality’s public registry, the addition of the maternal surname was authorised and promptly registered in the Civil Registry.

Below is an extract from the client’s grateful message, which gave us great pleasure:
“This is wonderful news. I am so happy and very grateful for your dedication and efficiency in this case that has taken so long due to so many vicissitudes, including the pandemic. We finally managed to get it thanks to you and your tenacity, I am enormously grateful.”
