Naturalization cert name error

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok, here I am. On my interview day I went through the name change with the IO. We both looked at it and I signed it and it was correct. On oath ceremony day. I think I never paid attention even on the name change decree from USCIS there was an error where there was supposed to be E, they had A. Because my name is long, and it just seems like they were right to me. I think I missed this due to so many things going on that day, celebrating with friends and all that. Imagine I never realized they had my name spelled wrong with one letter until I went to update my drivers license, and applied for my US passport. To cut story short. Should I reapply for a new naturalization certificate which is $345 and I do not have that money or should I just go to the Court house and petition for a name change to correct the error? I either have a new certificate with the correct spelling on how I want it to be or get a court order to correct the name on my US passport according department of state. Anybody had experience like this before? Thanks.
