If you married in Alabama and live in AZ where do file for divorce?

Generally speaking, US states require that the party filing for the divorce actually live in the state where they file. In your case, that would apparently be Arizona. If you have more than one residence, it can get complicated. However, since you're going to be seeing a lawyer anyway to do the filing, they can evaluate the specifics and inform you if you need to file elsewhere.
