Hi all,

I need your suggestions on the PCC matter.

I live in Bangalore, & have stayed at present address for over 3 years now. It was 3 years back when I got married & had registered the marriage in Delhi. Due to certain issues, my wife & I separated within a few months thereafter. She is not Indian, lives in her country now & we have gone our own ways. No contact, nothing.

Separation was a difficult period, & I didn't think of getting a divorce anytime soon, mainly due to dirty lawyers, their exorbitant fees & to avoid any possibility of getting back in touch. Also, considering that laws in India favor women blindly, getting divorce looks very risky.

When I renewed my passport last year, I didn't mention of my marital status as married, & got my passport as single. I've traveled since then on that.

Now, for a work related opportunity outside India, I am required to get a PCC now.

I understand I must get my passport updated to 'separated' or better, get a divorce first. But getting any of those done will take time, and more importantly, I just don't wish to bring this topic of separation at this point & instead focus on work & development.

For the police guys, it's probably going to be a means to get their chai-paani.

Has anyone in a similar situation (separated) gone through PCC? Can someone pls advice.? Thanks.

All I can say is make sure you have documentary evidence she is alive and well, the last thing you need is a missing persons investigation.
Lord, Grant me the Serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to hide the bodies of those people I had to kill because they pissed me off.

Ouch, you may very likely find that in the long run it will be better to bite the bullet and go through with divorce, even though it involves unpleasantness.
