I am an Indian citizen, having UK ILR and want to know if ILR will be cancelled if I do not visit UK for 2 years?

Actually I'm getting separated from my husband who is a British national and want to cancel my ILR now which is a precursor to our divorce.

Please advise how will it be revoked?

    Just to be absolutely clear: Do you want to cancel it? Or does he want to and you are asking how you can avoid that? – Gala Sep 7 '14 at 8:39
  • You do not need to cancel your ILR to get a divorce. But you may need to notify the Home Office of the divorce. – Michael Hampton Dec 29 '15 at 17:03

The ILR should not be affected in this case by your matrimonial status however it is intended for people settling in the country. In effect the ILR does lapse after 2 years of living abroad however there may be exceptions depending on individual circumstances.

I would advise to contact you citizen advice bureau for free legal advice if your are still in the UK or the nearest British embassy/consulate for clarifications.
