Question: I came on a tourist visa to visit my husband who lives and works in Italy. My husband has a Permit of Stay for work. I’ve been here for two months and should leave within a month’s time. But I’ve just discovered that we are expecting a baby. Can I remain in Italy with my husband?

After marriage with an Italian citizen, the foreign spouse is entitled to the Permit of Stay for family reasons even if he/she was in the country illegally.
If the spouse holds any other type of permit, he/she can convert it into the Permit of Stay for family reasons. The application is submitted using the application kit available at the post office.

Marriage between a foreigner and an Italian citizen, or between two foreigners if only one fulfils the residence qualification
Those who marry in Italy including foreigners are subject to Italian family law.
In order to marry either an Italian citizen or a non-EU citizen resident in the country, it’s not necessary to have the Permit of Stay. One is however expected to have a valid identity document such as a passport.

We hardly think of it but most of the things we do daily are regulated by contracts. Our work is regulated by a contract (work contract); the things we buy are regulated by contracts (sales contracts); electricity, water, telephone and many other services we use are regulated by contracts (supply contracts), etc. It is not easy to be fully aware of the conditions regulating all the contracts we sign.
It’s very important to read before signing any contract
The first and most essential advice is to carefully read any contract before you sign it. This may seem obvious but it’s not. By reading a contract before we sign it, we get to know in advance our rights and duties once we sign it.
