  1. How do I go about registering my marriage in Italy? We were married in New York and my husband is from Mola di Bari, Italia. I was told that I would be entitled to a percentage of his pension if he predeceases me.


    • Dear Debbie, to register you marriage in Italy you need to provide a marriage certificate in long form that must be apostilled, translated and brought to the Italian Consulate. Where do you live? And where did you get married?
      As a widow you will be eligible of 60% of your husband’s pension.
