changing the surname does not deny the fact that you are married and it has no implication on your divorce proceedings.

All you have to mention before the court about change of name and make necessary amendments in complaints and in divorce proceedings,.

Agree with the reply above. Right to use any name is solely yours. You may change your first name, middle name, last name, whatever at any time for any reason or no reason (read "some concocted reason"). Marriage or divorce have nothing to do with such matters. That said... the husband can seek a permanent injunction against you from using his surname or name in your name after your divorce if he can show that there is a possibility of misuse or abuse of his name by you.  Looks like you are saving him some trouble. Nice of you...
