if you are asking about the visit itself, of course she can visit you anytime this is something personal, but if you are talking about filling k1 visa then yes she must first get her divorce then fill the k1 visa , and know this to be met in person this is something very important for the k1 visa you should be met in person at least once

Depending on what state she's in, even seeing another person in a romantic way can put her at fault. I don't know your girlfriends status or how she is in the divorce.

But unless there's a lot of baggage involved, a divorce can actually go pretty quickly. If there's a lot of baggage, you don't want her ex-husband (current husband) to claim infidelity on her part and make the divorce harder than it needs to be.

But either way, meeting at ANY time regardless of yours or her relationship status is all that's needed for the K1. I was dating my fiance while in the divorce processes and I met him for the first time while waiting for the finalized divorce (but I had also known him online for 3 years, talked every day, yadda yadda), but I also had a non-contested divorce where my ex-husband waived his rights to the entire divorce. Every situations different, some easier than others. I'd play it safe if it's looking to be a long or hard divorce.

Also, for your own sake, please be careful. There are people out there that will say they will file for divorce and never do which only leads to problems.
