For those who have no minor children and no real property (houses or land) , and where both parties agree to the divorce, you can use the court approved forms located at https://www.tncourts.gov/help-center/court-approved-divorce-forms.
You would file the divorce in the county where (1) both of you lived at the time of separation; or (2) the county where she lives; or (3) if she does not live in Tennessee, then the county where you live.
Once the paperwork is filed with the court, there is a 60 day waiting period before you can set your final court date. Generally, the party initating the divorce will appear in court, however I am not sure if that is an option for you. If it is not possible, you shoudl contact the clerk's office where the divorce is set to find out what your options would be.
