MY SON IN LAW RECEIVED INDEFINITE LEAVE TO REMAIN LAST SEPTEMBER. mY DAUGHTER WANTS TO FILE FOR DIVORCE ON THE GROUNDS OF UNREASONABLE BEHAVIOUR. hE HAS ASKED HER NOT TO YET AS HE FEARS BEING UNABLE TO COMPLETE CITIZENSHIP IF HE IS DIVORCED. SHE WANTS TO COMPLETE THE DIVORCE BEFORE COMING INTO AN INHERITANCE VIA A DEED OF VARIATION TO HER GRNADMOTHER'S WILL WITHIN THE NEXT YEAR. SHE ALSO WANT TO BE REASONABLE. IS THERE ANY REASON FILING FOR DIVORCE WILL AFFECT HIS CAPACITY TO GAIN CITIZENSHIP?

Thanks for your question.
If your Son-In-Law has already obtained Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR), the Divorce will NOT affect his right to Citizenship.
Had he not received his ILR, then his Spouse Visa would have been curtailed and he would have had to return to his home country, however, as he has already received ILR, any subsequent break-up of the marriage will not affect his ability to obtain Citizenship.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
