I am completing my Express Entry profile. Under the "Creating your Profile" page, I have answered "Married" for Marital Status. Following this is the question: "Is your spouse/common-law partner included in this application?" I would like to answer "No" for the sole reason that we are already separated.
Regardless of the points, education, language etc, my husband and I are already separated. It is, however, a very unfortunate case that as having married in the Philippines, we can't file a divorce. Divorce is not legal in the Philippines. However, my ex-husband and I have decided to simply part ways.
In my case, it will be fraudulent to say "YES", because my husband is NEITHER included in my application, NOR would he want to be included in this application. But as I have read several feedbacks saying that the applicant should include the spouse, now I am utterly confused. I am not lying regarding my marital status. I am married by law. I am not lying about my application either.
He is not coming with me to Canada, or anywhere else for that matter. Why ask a question that states "Is your spouse included..." if the only answer for couples is "YES"?
