divorce in us?


I got married in November 2013 in India to my wife and also got the marriage registered with sub-registrar. I live in Maryland in USA. She came and lived with me till April 2014, after which she went back to India. We are having differences and I do not think she is interested in this marriage. But, neither of us has filed for a divorce yet. 


I am a student here and live on a monthly stipend. She came here as a dependent and was not allowed to work legally in USA. Now here are my questions:

1. Can I file a divorce in Maryland, USA? 

2. If I file a divorce in US, will she have to travel to USA for court case settlement?

3. If they or I file a divorce in India, will I have to go to court for hearings in India? Or can I only have my representative to attend court for me?

4. If I file a divorce, will I have to give any alimony to her? If so, how much will it be?
