If I seperate from my husband how it is going to affect my visa status
Expert:  Clare replied 10 months ago.

Since you are the one with the Visa and he is merely your dependant it will not change your Visa status in any way.

You can start divorce proceedings immediately based on his Unreasonable Behaviour.

Detail of how to do this are here

Please ask if you need further details

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thank you but I am not satisfied with the service
Expert:  Clare replied 10 months ago.

I do understand that there are other things you wish to know - but I do need to know exactly what they are.

You have clear grounds for divorce based on his Unreasonable Behaviour.

Your Visa status will not change - but once the divorce is final your ex will no longer be entitled to claim dependent status - indeed once the Petition is issued you can Notify Immigration of your withdrawal of support

If there are other areas you need details of please ask if you need further details
