Hi
Whilst he still holds a Spouse Visa he can remain in the UK even if you are not living together.
Once the Border Agency have revoked the Visa he will have to leave - and they are likely to withdraw it when you notify them that the marriage is over.
The divorce procedure is the same where ever he is living although it will be easier to deal with whilst he is in the UK as it is easier to ensure that the paperwork is served on him

Thanks Claire, do you have a number for the uk border agency as I have looked on the site but it seem impossible to speak to anyone directly.
