She left while I was out of state working. I was an over the road truck driver. She hasn't let me see or talk with our daughter since she left.

For up to six months after you and your wife separated, the divorce can be filed in the county where the marital residence was located. Since your wife left only two weeks ago, if you are still living in the same county where the marital residence was located, you can file for divorce in that county.
