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!

Hello, Im a US citizen pregnant by a man from India, working

Hello, I'm a US citizen pregnant by a man from India, working in Texas on a work visa. I currently reside in North Carolina. He has come to terms with my pregnancy and claims to want to help me with child support when the baby comes in September. Though he is scheduled for an arranged marriage in India in 2012 and will be bringing the wife back to Texas. In 2016, when his visa expires he must return to India. By this time the child will be about four years old. He does not want his family to know about the child nor does he want to pay child support through the legal system, for fear of a paper trail, but wants to just "help me out". He is afraid his family or new wife will find out about the baby which he claims will ruin his family's reputation or whatever. He also has threatened to run back to India if I pursue the matter legally or if I inform his family of the pregnancy. Other than that he has been ok to deal with. I am wondering if child support arrangements can be made through a lawyer rather than the legal system to ensure I recieve the proper amount. Also, can I get child support from him from India? Or can having a child here perhaps allow him to stay in the US longer since he would be supporting a US citizen? Or, if I did decide to take legal action, is there any way his passport could be suspended so as not to leave the country? Since he is leaving in a mere four years, would I be able to recieve a larger amount of child support durring the time that he is here to make up for the other 14 years I will be doing this on my own? Please inform me if I you can think of any concerns I should have that I may have left out. Thank You

I have been dating my boyfriend for about 8 months... I am

I have been dating my boyfriend for about 8 months... I am american he is hindu, from India. We fell in love, and months after I found out he was in an arranged marriage.. He didnt tell me because he didnt want to lose me. I just assumed everything woudl fall into place, he approached his family and asked them to accept me, they played so many games to get him away from me. They first accepted me, and would go back to India and handle his divorce, they then said no it is not possible and told him it was making them sick, they then took his businesses in USA away to force him back to India. The latest reason he has to leave me is that his mother is ill with cancer and her last request is for him to not be with me. At this point I do not know if anything he has said has been true. I found out two weeks ago I am pregnant with his child, he is leaving for India on Wednesday. He told me I shoudl have an abortion but to do what I want, if I was to have the child he would be back bi monthly to see him or her. I do not feel this would be good for the child or myself. He is making the decision to leave me here to deal with everything alone. I want to know my rights, and any information I can in order to make a decision, are the laws different in India? Will he have to pay child support. If he makes this decision can I protect myself and the child. What step should I take next.
