Yes, you can file. It is natural place of residence and wife lived with you. Also add desertion reason with other valid reasons.

Adv. Chandrasekhar (Advocate)     13 December 2011

If the court in Vasco is only a civil court and not a district court, then you cannot file there.

Divorce petition can be filed in a family court if it is there or otherwise it can be filed in the District court and can be tried by the judge having the rank of Additional District judge.

You can file case at Margao, if both the parties (husband and wife) lived together lastly in the territorial jurisdiction of Margao.
