Get UK Law Questions Answered by Verified Experts
When did you last visit the UK?
Thanks for the clarification.
In that case, you should be fine. As long as you have not stayed out of the UK for a continuous period of 2 years, you should not be worried. Even if you have a new passport, it doesn't matter as long as you have the old passport with you with the ILR stamp. You don't have to actually transfer it to your new passport.
It doesn't matter if you are no longer married to the man through which you got your ILR. Once you receive the ILR, as long as you don't stay away from the UK for a continuous period of 2 years at a time, they will reissue your indefinite leave. Even if you say that you are no longer married now, it would not matter as you already have ILR.
The case would have been different had you been still on a spouse visa rather than ILR.
I have already responded to your queries. What other clarification do you need?
Yes, that's right. The 'spouse visa' referred to in my previous answer is the 2 year period before they granted you indefinite leave.
Yes, that's right. You can live abroad indefinitely as long as you visit the UK once every 2 years. However, 2 years in the maximum time that you need to stay out of the UK in order for your ILR to be revoked, and I would advise you to space your visits so that you are not too close to the 2 year mark when you visit again since your last visit to the UK.
I have answered all your further queries.
Yes, at this stage, the ONLY way your ILR would be revoked is if you stay away for more than 2 years, unless you used deception or gave false application at the time of making the ILR application and they find it out later on.
