I am agree with super hero. Every case is dpend on the situation, party, nature of the case and how to manage the case.. Do you thing, you do want to step in the indian soil in future and as a tourist, then matter is simple, get divorce in the usa and get on with your life. if the situation otherway round, then there is no light in end of the tunnel.
.You are not alone in the boat and lot of people in the rocking boat such as 498A, DV..
.My one cents advice on experiences are as follows.Straight to the point, i do not want to pull any strings here and not discourage you. Make things simple, Talk to otherside and go for compromise. Throw the money how much they want it and get on with your life. You can make money in the usa and peaceful life.. otherwise it is like a cliffhanger. they will file any number of cases and the case contents are not imaginable. such as unnatural x, you did not take her for dog walk, you did not allow for take her boy friend to home at late night.. goes on and on..
I hope you experienced the court and process in india on your DV case now.. 'Exparte' Decree is not valid in India..( I have a contested decree from outside india, that decree not accepted by the indian judge, this is indian law.). Do not underestimate any matrimonial cases especially in India and it will make lot of sleepless nights.Think other way, She contested the divorce case in the USA, she can get whatever she want it with the help of good (bad) attorney..
Do not think, she can not touch any assets in the USA.. She can get everything from you and even you have to spend her attorney fee.. 1000s and 100000s...If she find good attorney in the USA... She can make you penniless. think twice.. money can make.. sleepless night and stress can not compromise it..
