Hi, thank you for your question. Her spousal visa will remain in force until it is cancelled by the Home Office. Your friend must notify them that they have separated and it will be for them to decide whether to discharge the visa or not - they will have to look at various factors and separation solely does not necessarily mean that the visa will be discharged - for example if they have children together or if there has been domestic violence towards her then these are grounds for the Home Office to allow her to remain.I hope this assists you.
