Thanks for your question.
You can switch to another category of Visa from your Spouse Visa. You will need to make an application as soon as you can. Once you have divorced, you will bebreaching the conditions of your Spouse Visa as the marriage would have irretrievably broken down.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
