Hi. Firstly, what visa are you applying for?

You should never lie to immigration, no matter what reason. Without knowing what visa you are applying for, immigration would want to know whether you are married or not because you might want your partner to be a second applicant for the visa, they would want to know if you wanted your spouse to migrate too.

Say that you are divorced, it's nothing to worry about really, and there's no need to put "never married".
