Can I exclude my spouse in my I-829 Petition due to divorce?

I am the primary applicant for an EB-5 visa and prepared for the EB-5 visa unmarried. But I got married and invited my spouse. Now, I am considering divorce. Can I apply for the I-829 without including my spouse?

You are not required to include your former spouse in your I-829 petition. However, your former spouse can file I-829 petition on their own even if you get a divorce.

You don’t have to include your spouse/ex. But they can file on their own.

Though you can exclude your ex-spouse from the I-829 form, she/he may file the I-829 independently.
