Greetings. I do not know the laws in Pennsylvania, so I can only advise you concerning NC law. I would tell you that since you both live here currently, your wife may file here anyway.
To revoke the power of attorney, you should put it in writing and record a copy of the revocation with the Register of Deeds in the county you currently reside.
You personally must sign the verification for the divorce, but you can retain an attorney to follow through on the remainder of the divorce paper work for you. Yes, you may give someone else a power of attorney for any issue, but remember that your wife is your wife. What you need before deployment is a Separation Agreement which determines all of both spouses’ rights and obligations. Best of luck and let us know if we can help.
