As a practical matter, the divorce should be filed where the children live. Only that state will have jurisdiction to make custody decisions (who gets custody, child support, visitation, etc.)
Theoretically, you could file for divorce in Kansas. But the Kansas court will decline jurisdiction over the children. So you would end up with a divorce and no resoution of any issue with regard to the children.
