A name change can happen if you present proof that you have already legally changed your name as required by the laws of the state you reside in. Such proof can include a marriage certificate, divorce decree or a court order establishing your name change. If none of this applies to you, you can request your Oath of Allegiance for your Naturalization Ceremony be held in a court or request that a judge preside over the ceremony and request that the court change your name. If your request is granted, your new name will appear on your Certificate of Naturalization. Selecting this option will undoubtedly cause delays with the processing of your application
If you were born in the U.S. or any of its territories, you are generally a U.S. citizen by birth. 2. If you were born aboard and both of your parents are U.S. citizens and can demonstrate that at least one of your parents lived in the U.S. at some point, in most cases you will be considered a U.S. Citizen. 3. If you were born abroad and at least one of your parents is a U.S. Citizen, you might be a U.S. Citizen if you can demonstrate that your citizen parent lived at least 5 years in the U.S. prior to your birth and at least 2 of those 5 years in the U.S. were after your parent’s 14th birthday. Record of your birth abroad registered with a U.S. consulate or embassy will also serve as proof of your citizenship.
If you believe your application was denied in error, you can request a hearing with an immigration officer. Your denial letter will explain the process of filing this request. Information on form N-336 will be detailed in this letter. If your denial was because your failed the English or civics portion of the exam, you can reapply as soon as you feel prepared to do so.
If your card is already expired or will expire soon, you can still apply for citizenship as an expired card will not bar your for applying. However, you will encounter problems if you travel internationally, apply for a job, or apply for certain benefits.
