Does the Texas department of public safety recognize informal marriage?

Does the Texas department of public safety recognize informal marriage? My husband and I just filed for decleration of informal marriage the other day and I want to change my last name to his. We are now legally married.

    Because the state of Texas recognizes informal marriage, the Texas Dept. of Public Safety should recognize your informal marriage. Go to your local county court house and fill out a name change form. You will have to pay a small fee.
