    You were divorced. If you were still married you'd now be a widow. But you aren't married. You are a divorcee who's ex husband has died. You could put divorced or single.

    If you divorced him before he died you're divorced.

    You tell us you got a divorce. That doesn't change with the passing of your ex-spouse. You get to put down whatever you want on the form but what you are is divorced. And single. So, in your shoes, I'd likely put down Single. It can be a good thing to be!

    You are divorced. Widowed means he died WHILE you were married. Single means you have NEVER been married.

    Divorced. If you're given the choice of single, technically that's not wrong, but by definition a divorced person is single, so it's the most accurate way to put it.

    A widow is a person whose husband has passed away, not a women whose ex passed away. you were parted by divorce not by death you are not his widow
