You can file petition in Mumbai as you both lastly resided in Mumbai. And if you presently residing in Goa their also you can file the petition. You being Christian can file petition n seek divorce under relevant act.

Yes, being the last residing place I.e. Mumbai, you can file divorce petition at Mumbai. There is a separate Christian Act but nothing to worry as Mumbai court is having jurisdiction. Once you are divorced by court order you can remarry .
