Thanks for your question. The UKBA will not automatically be informed of the divorce. If your wife has now obtained her UK passport then citizenship can only be revoked in certain circumstances. This is most commonly where it has been obtained by deception.
Given that you appear to have been in consultation on the genuineness of the marraige and it seems that the UKBA, having considered the issue, decided that the marraige was genuine and therefore issue her indefinite leave to remain.
Here stats in this country will most likely continue.
In divorce the matrimonial assets of each party are all included and there is a presumpstion that each party has a 50% share of the assets, but this can be rebutted by amongst other things, if the marriage is a short one.

Hi, Thanks for your accept.
If your marriage is only 5 years then it is just about a "short"marriage for the purpose of matrionial settlement. In short marriages the assets which each party acquired pre--marriage are generally retained by the person who owned them prior to marriage unless there are reasons why this should not be the case (eg. if you had children and she was to look after them).
Assets acquired during marraige would probably be shared 50% unless there were other reasons for departing (eg. her health), your assets acquired before marraige I would expect to remain yours. This is not to say that you cannot negotiate yourself a better deal with her informally.
