Hi
Thank you for your question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
If you were legally married in the States then yes you are legally married so far as the Uk is concerned
Provide don of you has been resident in the Uk for the last year (six months if you are actually a UK citizen) then you can file for a divorce in the UK
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
