I want to finish this divorce, what can I do beside starting a new proceeding in France using an Apostille as the way to get this divorce without the wife cooperation?

I hate to say it, but someone in your situation would have to either go back to Arizona to finish the divorce yourself, or at the very least hire an attorney to continue the divorce for you. The divorce can still continue even though both of you left the jurisdiction, provided that at least one of you originally qualified for the jurisdiction to file the divorce in Arizona.

When you are finishing the divorce in AZ, you'd want to send notice of the continuous paperwork filed with the court to your wife in Serbia. Assuming you know the address, this can be done. If you do not know the address, this can get very complicated so you'd want to use an attorney.
