Visas when you separate or divorce

Last updated: 13 March 2017

You must tell the Home Office if you separate or divorce from your partner and you:

  • are sponsoring someone for a visa
  • are a dependent on your partner's UK visa
  • have a 'family of a settled person' visa as a spouse or partner
  • have limited leave in the UK because you're the partner of a British citizen, a 'settled person' or someone who has refugee status or humanitarian protection
