My divorce will be finalized in a month, and I also have overseas travel plans in two months. I'd like to get my passport in advance and I know it'll probably take about a month expedited to get to me, and there are other arrangements that need to be made.
My current issue is TECHNICALLY I will be married once I submit the information in the time period that makes sense for me, but by the time I get my passport I will be fully divorced. Would It be wise to file as married (to avoid punishment for lying) or to file as single, as that will be my status by the time I am travelling? Thanks!
