Clarification regarding name and religion change for marriage

Hi, I'm a muslim want to marry my girlfriend who is hindu. She will become a Muslim and change her name too. I need advice on when she should change her name and convert because it is necessary to give documents to court before marriage. If we marry first then her old name will be there in our marriage certificate and if she change her name she needs to apply for all the required documents for name change. Please suggest.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

You can get the marriage registered under the Special Marriages Act without any need for conversion.
Alternatively, since the girl is willing to convert, she should do the same before the marriage. However, be informed that conversion is not necessary as per law, but non-conversion is usually an issue under Muslim personal law.
