You may file for divorce in North Carolina since your husband still lives here. You will need to file in the County your husband lives in to ensure venue is proper. You can file for divorce from where you live now, and may wish to contact an attorney who can guide you through the process. It is a fairly simple process, and its usually all said and done in 60-90 days.

I am not sure of the divorce process in your state. Different states have different residency requirements and differnt requirements as far as the lenght of the separation period.

You should consult with an attorney in Washington to determine the process there before you decide where you will file.
