I have a couple of concerns. First, your question give no indication that the state of Washington would have any jurisdiction over your spouse. If Washington does not have jurisdiction over your spouse, then, while the state could dissolve your marriage, it could not do anything else - like award or divide property or debts. Second, the fact that you are "overseas" give me pause. Generally, even in an agreed or default divorce, there is one court appearance where you would have to appear and give testimony. If you are overseas, how is that going to get accomplished?
