You can choose to file the cases pertaining to cruelty ( extra marital affair is also cruelty) in USA OR in India. In USA courts generally grant no fault divorce which means you get your divorce and compensation, but your husband will go scot free after granting divorce and paying you money.
Filing the domestic violence case (cruelty is domestic violence in india) in india is advantageous given that your marriage was solemnized here in india and that indian laws (though time consuming) are women friendly in terms of punishment and compensation.
Indian laws provide for both punishment and compensation in matrimonial cases
You can file multiple cases in matrimonial matters ( filing of multiple cases will help as your husband and in laws will need to defend multiple cases and run from pillar to post for about 2 to 3 years)
a) Maintenance u/s 125 Cr.P.C
b) Domestic Violence (Punishment with compensation)
c) Divorce with alimony
d) Reclaim marriage expenses, dowry , jewellery etc.
