I had my naturalization interview today and passed. My oath ceremony is scheduled for next week Tuesday. However, I do not wish to have my name changed anymore because of travel issues. I told my officer today that I didn't want to change it, but she was kind of in a bad mood and said it didn't matter when I travel, all I had to do was show the document that I changed my name. However, I would feel more assured if I did not change my name. Is it possible that during my oath ceremony, I have my old name even though during interview I said I did and signed it?
If your Oath of Allegiance is at a naturalization ceremony before a judge, you can make this request before the judge. The judge may or may not grant your request.
If your swearing in ceremony is not before a judge, you will have to have your name changed through the prescribed method of your state.
