Yes. File in the county where you have resided for six months. Also, talk to an immigration lawyer before you file.

Your immigration status in California has no bearing on your right to file a divorce action in this jurisdiction. If you've lived in California for at least six months and 3 months in the county where you intend to file your divorce, you qualify for starting a divorce action. Please meet with an experienced family law attorney to explore your legal options.
