Endorsement of Name Change During Naturalization Process
Form G-24, Certification of Documents
We have recently seen a few cases wherein a female U.S. Citizen of Indian origin has applied to the Indian Consulate in the U.S. for an Overseas Citizenship of India (OCI) card. If the female U.S. Citizen changed her maiden name to her married name during the naturalization process, as part of the OCI application process, the Indian Consulate will request endorsement of name change done during the naturalization process.
In such a situation, the female U.S. Citizen should make an Info Pass appointment with the local USCIS Field Office and request certified copy of name change made during naturalization. During the Info Pass appointment, the female U.S. Citizen should let the Immigration Officer know that she requires the certified copy of name change made during naturalization. The Immigration Officer will issue the female U.S. Citizen original Form G-24, Certification of Documents, which will list her maiden name, married name, Alien Number and Naturalization Certificate Number. The Indian Consulate should accept the Form G-24, Certification of Documents as evidence of endorsement of name change done during the naturalization process. Please find attached a sample of Form G-24, Certification of Documents.
