The answer depends on the local requirements of the agencies you wish to change your name. For DMV and SSA, they may change it without the need of a court order as the prior common practice was to permit the name changes
by your continual use of his surname. Again the key word is they may
change it without a court order, you will need to ask them as each jurisdiction has their own preferences. However if the goal is to change the marriage
certificate, then you will require a court order name change.
