    There is a section that explains all fees and procedures. Marriage Records Free site suggests that you have as much information as possible including name or names of parties involved, which court the case was heard in and other information that you may have. This will make your search go more quickly.

    What you describe sounds pretty weird. I did a name change as well, and the name change certificate was given to me together with the naturalization certificate during the oath ceremony. From reading the other posts in this forum I have the impression that this is standard practice (that name change and naturalization certificates are given together).
    I guess you could try to get in touch directly with the court which conducted the naturalization ceremony and ask them directly; presumably it is this court that has to approve the name change request.
