Is there anything else you feel is relevant to your question or anything else you would like to add before we continue?
No. A divorce will not affect your residency or your settlement visa (pre-settled status).
Usually, once your Immigration status is dependent on a continuing relationship you may be able to apply for an alternative visa such as a parent of a child visa, work visa or;
If you have been subject to domestic violence in your relationship, you may qualify to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain even though you may not meet the standard Indefinite Leave to Remain residence requirement rules.
Lastly, you will need to tell the Home Office if you get divorced from your partner.
Is there anything else I can help with today?
No, you will only apply for other visas once it will affect your immigration status. Since your residency will not be affected, you can remain in the UK. Emotional abuse will also be considered domestic abuse, you should have proof like a letter from your GP.
