Thanks for your quesiton.
How long ago did they obtain ILR?
Were you living together at the time she got ILR?
Were you still in a relationship when you made your applicatoin?
Do you now hold ILR?
You had split up at the time at which you supported his application?
Thanks for your reply.
Though I'm sure you very much want to tell them that you have split up I'm afraid that it would not be in your best interests to do so. You supported his application for indefinite leave to remain based upon his status as a dependent. When you supported his application you effectively were saying that you were still in a relationship at the time of his application.
If you were not, then this is a deception. This is taken very seriously by the UKBA. Deception can be grounds for revoking ILR, so it would be for the UKBA to decide whether or not to take revocation proceedings against both him and you. In all probability they would take whatever action they took against him also against you so it's really not worth the risk since you could be putting yourself in a position where you would be prompting your own revocation of ILR and possible deportation proceedings after that.
You should try to accept his misdeed and move on. Sorry it could not be better news, I'm certain it's very painful for you and you have my sympathies.
