Hi, I got married in India last year and brought my wife to

Hi, I got married in India last year and brought my wife to USA in Feb 2013. We were happy for only 2 weeks after the marriage as we lived like a proper husband and wife. After two weeks she started fighting in small small issues and then started unreasonable demands and giving me mental torture. Also she refused me to see the doctor when I took her to hospital on her request. I was very frustrated since it was just a month of my marriage and I don't know what medical treatment she was doing inside the hospital because the hospital guys said its patients rights. I am her husband and I have no rights if she is doing anything wrong ?. After this when I shouted on her she registered the complaint of domestic violence. The police didn't register any case as they didn't found any physical injuries.After knowing all this I was constantly living in threat with her and also in the emotional trauma that I just got married to someone unknown as it was arranged marriage in India. She is creating so much frustration and threat for me in US. I have clean history working in USA for last 3 years and have good records. But now after getting married I was living in threat. Due to this situation I felt that she doesn't wants to stay with me or whatever the reason, I asked her to go to India at her parents house so that she will be happy if she is not feeling secure, she said she will live here and study here. I didn't like that as that means she is just using me and later might file for divorce here and charge me for alimony.One day in frustration we both again went into heated discussion. Next day while I was at work she called the police and told them that I am getting mad and harassing her. She said to arrest me. But the police officer asked her what happened and he asked if I have physically hurt her. She said no, the the police said he cannot arrest as he has not done any physical injuries to her. Also we both were sleeping separately for 2 months and had no physical relationship. She told that to police officer that we were sleeping separately so the police officer didn't created any case and he just noted that on the incident report and left. But she left my house that day as she didn't feel safe to live with me after all this things that she did to me. I came to know that she went to India as I called her parents. Now again in India she filed another false complaint of domestic violence and harassment which was not proved in USA. Because of her false complaint in India I had given the full power of attorney to my brother in India to represent me. We did that for last 6-8 months. She has asked for huge money in India but we negotiated for it as the women laws in India are biased.Now she has come to USA for job, as per the information I got from her friends and relatives. She screwed me in India by putting false case and asking for money and now she is coming to USA again and doing job. As far as I know she doesn't have legal permit to work in USA, but she is using her B1/B2 tourist visa to come to USA and trying to do the job. I don't know currently were she is right now in USA. But I know she is in California. I want to serve her Divorce papers by filing here in USA but don't know how to find her. Also can I find what visa she is working on here.Please advice!
