Generally speaking....

If he has been gone more than six months from here then you have to file it in his jurisdiction. However, if you can agree, then you can file it here uncontested. If there are children involved this will complicate things, especially if he contests it.

A divorce can usually be filed in Georgia assuming one of you has been here six months. Whether than is the best place to file, and what the court can rule on, depends on details you did not post. Regardless, you want to get a lawyer. The process will be simplest and cheapest if he agrees and signs.
