Question UK Passport Renewal -v- Divorce

Hi. Very simple question:
If I state on my C1 Application for UK Passport renewal form that I am married and subsequently get divorced, must I advise this particular change to the British Consultate in Madrid? From what I understand from reading so far, I would only have to advise a change of name, not status, is that correct? Many thanks.
PS: I am a UK citizen living in Spain and CURRENTLY married but not sure how long for!

Well at the moment you are still married so I assume you are ok, but later married or not, I think its only your name to change unless you keep it as it is now.
But if you do make a name change, make sure you meet the postie, cos if he leaves a ticket and you have to pick it up from the PO you will have no ID.
This happened to my daughter and they went to collect it would not even take the word of her husband. ;-(
It got sent back to Madrid and then sent out again to the office where my wife worked..... no ID needed.
