Can I get Divorced in Illinois even if I got married somewhere else?

Yes. Where a couple can divorce is determined by where they live now, not where they got married. So, if you got married in California but now live in Illinois, you can get divorced in Illinois and it will be valid everywhere. That being said, some countries will not recognize an American divorce if you were married in their country, which really only matters if you intend to return there permanently.
