I'm going to file a divorce case in Texas state,but the problem is my wife has not been to united states ever. She has no SSN, and also we have no child or property together and I am waiting for my asylum interview.
You may file a divorce in Texas so long as you have been domiciled in the state for at least 6 months. You will need to file in the county of which you have been a resident for 90 days. The problem may be serving your spouse. International service is complicated and expensive. If she is willing to file responsive pleadings or an waiver of service, you can avoid the service process. Contact an attorney for a more in-depth discussion on the process for serving a party internationally or obtaining and "uncontested" divorce.
If you meet residence and domicile requirements, you can file a divorce the serve the other party. You can ask for a status adjudication of a divorce, but the court would lack jurisdiction to do much else besides grant your divorce.
