Default CRA-separated or divorced? tax question

Is there any differences between a divorced tax payer who select SEPARATED instead of DIVORCED in the Martial Status when submitting taxes?

If an ex-husband were to be paying money since the day of separation , for all expenses of the ex-wife in lieu of Spousal Support amount agreed by lawyers and the ex-wife, and the ex-husband keeps requesting the ex-wife to sign the consent letter ( drafted by lawyer) in order for the ex-husband to declare all the money paid as Spousal support, but the ex-wife refuses to do so with assumption that the ex-wife does not want to 'pay taxes" on these benefits received from the ex-husband, is the ex-wife being non-compliance to CRA and if this is true, is the ex-wife trying to cheat the government's financially ?
