Please, this is important. I'd appreciate answers from experts in the immigration field.
I got divorced in 2013. I have since started over or am atleast trying to start over. However, one of the things I wanted to initiate was application for a passport.
When I called up the passport customer support, they said that my marital status will be 'divorced'. That scares me a little. That it will follow me around all my life. (it was an extremely violent marriage which included broken bones) I'd like to start over, and it would be terrible if one human being can still keep affecting me for the rest of my life.
It is a traumatizing thought. I don't see why I have to advertise it to everyone, except my future partner.
I'm applying with my maiden name as my name was not officially changed when I got married (we separated after two very violent weeks).
However, My ex had forced me to apply for my aadhar card with my maiden name and then a.k.a with his surname. But because aadhar process was started over so many times, they asked me to re-apply, but by that time, I was divorced so i did not need to use my ex-husband's surname. So now they have duplicates and it is being sorted. But they always have delays.
Meantime, my question is, Can I apply for my passport without 'divorced' as my status and while my aadhar issue is still being sorted out (again, not my fault).
Please, I'm afraid to apply. With my luck, it'll run into trouble, if anything. whih I want to avoid at all costs. Re-applying is difficult, I heard.
Please please help me.
