Thanks for your question.
If you issue divorce proceedings then you would be effectively saying that your married is at an end. If you have applied for naturalisation on the basis that you are married to a UK citizen and therefore only have to prove that you are married and have been in the UK for three years then they may refuse your application if they find out about the divorce proceedings.
The only way that they would take enforcement action to revoke your ILR is if they had proof that you obtained it whilst believing that your marriage was at an end. The usually only do this where they have absolute proof that your marriage was at an end around the time you applied for or obtained ILR.
IN the wider scheme of things a divorce can take 5 months on average so I would say wait until you have heard back on your application rather than complicate things.
