Hello to everyone. I used to post here back when my wife and I were still in the process of getting her here. Now we are happily married with a 2 year old boy and one on the way in 9 months hehehe. God has been so good. She took her Naturalization Interview/Test last year on December 8, 2011 and upto now we are waiting for the oath letter. During her interview, she requested to have her name changed because the name that they were going to use will not match with her married name and everything else that she currently has (license, green card..etc..). We live in Georgia so everything is done in Atlanta. Can anyone help us, especially those who went through in Atlanta to give us a good estimate on when she will receive her oath appointment letter? By the way, here is a help for those who are also zoned in Atlanta.. I have the link to where it shows the dates for the oath ceremony: http://www.gand.usco...naturalization/

We are hoping that she will be in either Feb or March according to the schedule but we are not sure since she did a name change. I hope that it will not take longer than 2 months. Thank you.

I am also waiting for the oath ceremony.
I finished my interview and test on Nov. 7th 2011.
I asked an INS officer how long this will take if I correct my name,
and she said a month. I believed it.... and I shouldn't have changed my name....
I hope I also take it in Feb. ceremony.
I've heard it might take 3-6 months in Atlanta.

Check this website too....

As far as I know unless there is a large group with name changes all Oath Ceremonies with a name change have to be done under a US District Court judge which take longer so they are usually scheduled on a case by case basis but you never know if the judge doesn't have much to do you are good to go and then you can officially become a US Citizen. Now I don't know how Atlanta operates but that is the way they do it down here in Tampa but you can always call the 1-800 number and ask them if you feel you need specific information.

I had my interview in ATL on dec 6 and also requested my name changed but i just received my oath letter 2 days ago and I am scheduled for the feb 10th ceremony at the federal court in downtown. After the interview the IO gives you a recommended for approval letter and on that letter there's the IO's name so i would send him/her a letter asking the status of ur case. I sent my IO a letter last week and 2 days later my online status changed to "oath ceremony" and received my scheduled date 3 days later.
Try that and maybe she still has time for the feb 10th oath ceremony.
All the luck to both of you!

I also went through Atlanta, changing my name last October. Unfortunately mine probably won't help your case because I got my interview letter after the interview (waited about 30 min). The oath was exactly 2 weeks after the interview date, and there were about 300 participants.

I know another guy who had almost identical timeline as mine without the name change. He also got the letter on the same day, but the oath was 4 days after the interview.

My friend, who went through the N-400 process 3 years ago in Atlanta without the name change but was taking modified oath, waited for the interview letter for 6 weeks. I think he said that the oath was 3 weeks after the issuance date of the invitation letter.

Hope you get one soon.
