A person who ceases to be a family member of a qualified person on termination of a marriage or civil partnership will retain a right of residence if:•the marriage or partnership lasted for at least three years immediately before the initiation of proceedings for divorce, annulment or dissolution, and•the parties to the marriage or civil partnership had resided in the UK for at least one year during the duration of the marriage or civil partnership, or•the former spouse or civil partner of the qualified person has custody of the children or a right of access to the children in the UK, or•there are particularly difficult circumstances (such as domestic violence) justifying the retention of the right of residence.In such circumstances a family member retains a right of residence if:(a)S/he is a non-EEA national but is pursuing activity which would make him/her a worker or a self-employed person if s/he were an EEA national,(b)S/he is a self-sufficient person, or(c)S/he is the family member of a person in the UK who is either a worker, self-employed, or is a self-sufficient person.You would therefore need to show that you are economically active in the UK e.g. payslips, P60's etc. see here for further information: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitecontent/documents/policyandlaw/ecis/chapter5.pdf?view=Binary
If the above applies to you, you will have retained the right of residence and you are okay to travel alone, also note that you have not yet divorced your spouse, so your case is stronger.
Hope this helps
thanks a lot for your help!

They always asked me that? should say the truth?
