Thank you.If you are habitually resident in England, you may file for divorce in England if you wish. Otherwise you would need to go to Portugal, you cannot do it through the Portuguese Embassy in the UK.Eg see this guidance from the Embassy in the US http://www.embassyportugal-us.org/Embassy_of_Portugal/Registration_of_Divorce.htmlAll the best
