That's fine, as I say it is taken to mean that your spouse can lawfully live in the UK and you will have to explain in the application that you are planning to move there. You can do this in your statements.
I hope this clarifies, if so please click accept.
Right, they could still curtail your indefinite leave to remain because your circumstances would have changed and they might also suspect that your original application was made dishonestly.
That is only if your spouse was to tell the Home OFfice that you are separating/divorcing. If they do not tell of the divorce then you can simply stay on ILR.
If you wait one year after getting ILR before getting divorced you would be eligible to apply for British Citizenship, this would get around the problem ultimately.
If you have confidence that your spouses will not tell the Home Office that you are divorcing following receipt of ILR then you can simply remain here regardless of divorce.
Just so you are aware, you have not clicked accept. THere was no need to add further money - I am happy to answer your questions under your original deposit.
