Gender Marker Change
Can I change my gender marker during the N-400 naturalization process?
Yes. You can request that your gender marker be changed by presenting one of the following forms of evidence:
- A court order granting change of sex or gender
- A government-issued document reflecting the requested gender designation, such as:
- Amended birth certificate
- Driver’s license
- Other official document showing identity issued by U.S. government, state or local government, a foreign government
- A letter from a licensed health care professional certifying that the requested gender designation is consistent with your gender identity. A licensed health care professional includes licensed counselors, nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, psychologists, social workers, and therapists. This letter must include the following information:
- Health care professional’s full name, address, and telephone number;
- Health care professional’s license number and the issuing state, country, or other jurisdiction of the professional license;
- Language stating that the health care professional has treated or evaluated the individual in relation to the individual’s gender identity; and
- Health care professional’s assessment of the individual’s gender identity.
