Hi,
I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.
To file for divorce in PA, one of you has to have lived in PA for at least for at least six months prior to filing. If you both currently live in India, I'm sorry to say, you wouldn't be able to file for a divorce in the US. It's necessary to file in India, based on Indian law.
