The recognition of binational couples between Italian and foreigner and the issue of the residence permit for family reunification to the foreign partner
Damiani & Damiani Law Firm is among the few in Italy to have achieved important legal results by obtaining the recognition of de facto couples between Italian and foreign and the issuance of the residence permit to the foreign partner. Damiani & Damiani Law Firm has won several cases in judicial courts such as that of the Court of Milan in collegial composition. In fact, the non-EU foreign cohabitant can obtain a residence card for family reasons, if they have a durable relationship with an Italian or EU citizen. In other, even more recent cases, the DAMIANI & DAMIANI Law Firm managed to obtain regularization without recourse to the Judge, precisely by virtue and by virtue of the jurisprudence obtained in the previous months.
The Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 07.09.2020 recognizes the issue of the entry visa for 90 days for reunification with the non-EU cohabitant
The work of the Damiani & Damiani Law Firm on immigration and entry into Italy for de facto couples between an Italian citizen and a non-EU cohabitant is confirmed in the DPCM of 07.09.2020. The Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers for the extension of the anti Covid measures in September overcomes the bureaucratic impasse that prevented the cohabiting foreigner from reuniting with their Italian partner due to the COVID-19 restrictions. In fact, the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of September recognizes – among others – “the stable relationship” as a primary reason for entering the Italian territory with a visa. However, the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers has given the green light to cohabitate for couple with foreigners to reunite after months of being away due to the pandemic but only for 90 days which is the maximum limit within which the foreign partner can legally remain in Italy.
Only with the intervention of the DAMIANI & DAMIANI Law Firm can the non-EU cohabitant begin a process of regularization of their stay in Italy.
Thanks to the intervention of the lawyers of the Damiani & Damiani Law Firm, the non-EU cohabitant of an Italian citizen will be able, within a few months, to be recognized in all respects “family” of the Italian citizen without resorting to marriage and obtain a residence permit for family reasons renewable for one year or five years.
It should be remembered that the residence card for family reasons allows the foreign cohabitant to access the national health service, study, work and travel within the Italian territory and abroad, finally being able to live peacefully their relationship with their partner, without the onerous limits imposed by immigration laws.
Obviously, obtaining a residence card is a goal that – at the moment – can only be achieved with the support of a team of expert lawyers who have specialized in immigration and citizenship law. DAMIANI & DAMIANI Law Firm has been working on the reunification of the foreign partner of an Italian citizen for years and has finally resolved the bureaucratic impasse that prevented the reunification of the non-EU family member.
In fact, the Public Administration still today tends to reject requests for reunification, fearing “alternative” hypotheses that can no longer be accepted and tolerated. The law that recognizes family reunification between couples made up of an Italian and a non-EU citizen exists and does not only provide for marriage as an emotional bond.
The legal process followed for the recognition of Italian and foreign de facto couples
The legal process of the DAMIANI & DAMIANI Firm is to ask the Public Administration and – possibly – the Judge to apply a law that is systematically illegitimately disapplied in Italy. The assistance of an immigration lawyer to obtain the right to family reunification continues to be indispensable and decisive. Without the appropriate intervention for the recognition of the right to reunification between cohabitants, it is not possible to enter Italy and obtain a residence permit. Our firm, having now consolidated the process for accessing non-EU non-resident cohabitants to Italy, can help international couples to fulfill their desire for a family by overcoming the bureaucratic impasse and guaranteeing the protection of primary right to family unity.
