Default legally separted

Dear All,

I am separated from my wife for years now and have been filling my tax as separated. I am now going to apply for citizenship and noticed that the application form says "legally separated" which is not my case. Should I tick married? or legally separated.

Many thanks,

Fady

Hi
If it was me...I would put legally separated, which although you do not have paperwork to prove it, you said it was for years. I would include a letter explaining the circumstances and say that you have been separated for X years. That way you have not lied to them. If you tick married, could it affect your tax standing?

If you have been separated for years...did you make a will after the separation so that the ex could not get anything from you if you died before divorce? That is a legal document which could help prove, if you need to?

Hope this helps
Stef
