Q: I have completed over 24 months of employment as a live in caregiver. I am about to file for permanent residence. The application asks if I am married. I am separated and do not want to include my husband. How do I exclude him from the application?
A: Depending on when the deadline is to file the application and the length of separation, you may wish to investigate whether you are eligible file for a divorce. Divorce will exclude him. If there is insufficient time, it may be best to still file the application now in order to get an open work permit faster. I suggest to consult an immigration lawyer for strategy.
