Judicial Oath Ceremony

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm assuming its down to location, but I was wondering how often Judicial Oath Ceremonies occur.


I got told I'd need one as my current legal name (on my Green Card...) isn't recognized so I need to have a name change with my oath.

I'm curious. How is your current legal name not recognized? 

It's really odd I thought too! He said they go off the last legal document, which would be my marriage certificate. Now, the marriage certificate in NC doesn't state what the married woman's name will be, it only has her unmarried name. So the assumption is made by them that I will take his last name. What I did, (legally as instructed in NC) was a name update via Social Security. So my social security has my full new name, as does my Green card, drivers license etc. That's why I'm surprised, because it was allowed for my Green card.
