(2) The court may order a legal change of sex and enter the judgment in the same manner as that provided for change of name of a person under ORS 33.410 (Jurisdiction) and 33.420 (Notice of application and judgment).

(3) If a person applies for a change of name under ORS 33.410 (Jurisdiction) and 33.420 (Notice of application and judgment) at the time the person applies for a legal change of sex under this section, the court may order change of name and legal change of sex at the same time and in the same proceeding.
