got married in new Mexico me or wife live there anymore can we get divorce without residency there?
It does not matter where you were married; if you do not meet the residency requirements in NM for divorce, then you can not obtain a divorce there. You may want to post your question with a location in NM so that attorneys who are licensed to practice there can see your question and educate you as to the residency requirements for divorce. Alternatively, you can look up NM divorce statutes.
If you and your wife have both been residents of SC for at least three months, then you can file for a divorce in SC (provided you've got proper grounds for a divorce.) Generally, where you got married is irrelevant in a divorce case. Where you are a resident determines jurisdiction.
