This is actually Family Law question. You need to ask a Family Law attorney who practices in the State that has jurisdiction over the marriage whether or not dissolution by proxy is permitted in that State, & find out if the proxy followed proper procedure in filing the dissolution petition, etc.
However, if your divorce is not valid in the State it was filed in (due to a technicality, failure to file the final judgement, etc), then your subsequent marriage would also be invalid, causing the I-130 to be denied.
