    Default Name Change After Naturalization

    Prior to their naturalization ceremony, at their naturalization interview, an immigrant was asked about a possible name change. At the time the immigrant said "no". They now have naturalized and have received a naturalization certificate under their current name.

    Since then, they have given more thought to a name change. Many people misspell the person's name, or stumble over pronunciation. Is there a process to now effect a name change, and would it result in a change of the name on the naturalization certificate? The person lives in Florida.

    Default Re: Name Change After Naturalization

    The process of name change is now the same as it is for any other person -- they follow the name change process as defined by Florida law. They can find instructions and forms here.

    The name change will not result in a change of the name reflected on the Naturalization/Citizenship Certificate.
