My South African husband has obtained an free Type C Visa as a spouse of an EU citizen for the duration of 90 days.
As soon as I obtain my residency status (Residenza) in Italy on the grounds of being a citizen we will then apply for an extension of his Visa or for a 'Carta di soggiorno'.
Am I right to assume that our financial status is irrilevant and that at least a two year Carta di soggiorno will be issued to him regardless of our employment status.
We did not register our marriage at the consulate in Jhb because I had been married previously and consequently got divorced in 2004 and did not register that marriage with the Consulate so now the Consulate asked me to do that marriage and divorce transcription first before I can register this marriage but because of a difficulty in obtaining my previous unabridged marriage certificate and divorce papers (I have the divorce decree) we decided to try and do it in baby steps while in Italy.
I please need advise regarding the difficulty of the application of a 'Carta di soggiorno' for my husband while only in possession of our unabridged marriage certificate but lacking the Apostille which I am awaiting a friend to send for me from South Africa.
