A non-EU citizen even if it doesn’t live together with an Italian citizen may file for and obtain a residence permit for family reunification under Italian
Damiani&Damiani Law Firm is pleased to announce that on 03.02.2020, after almost two years of battles perpetrated by this firm in the interest of our clients and beneficiaries, lawyers Irene Damiani and Anna Sagone were able to do justice.
In fact, on 3 February the first order was finally issued, which fully accepts the precautionary appeal for the protection of the non-EU cohabitant of an Italian citizen.
The Italian Court of has expressed a positive opinion on the “official” nature of the cohabitation contract, pursuant to Legislative Decree 30/2007, when signed before a lawyer as provided for by Law 76/2016 (until now the Police Headquarters have always denied the residence permit and residence to the non-EU cohabitant of an Italian citizen).
The interpretation was necessarily oriented by our references to Directive 38/2004/EC, a European norm that until 3 February remained a dead letter after 12 years from the transposition of the EU Directive into our legislation and after an infringement procedure against Italy issued by the EU in 2013.
