2.                                                                    PARTY OF THE SECOND PART




(III) Argument

             Based on the forum’s “Sample Divorce deed” myself  & my advocate prepared the deed of compromise like above.

             But @ the time of signing… Opposite advocate  & My advocate says  points 4 & 11 (marked in red color) are NOT legally valid points. This must be removed.

I didn't accept it. The agreement is not yet signed.


Advocate’s  Justification is:

è   Our human body is belongs to “Govt of India” So that no one cann’t  insist/order others  as “not to file any case”. i.e. Police only have rights to file any new cases. Hence points  11   is legally not valid.

è  Once we put “permanent alimony”.  by default  she has no rights to claim from my properties in future. So that point 4 should not come.

I told them that I will discuss with my godfather(i.e. this forum)then I will come back.  



    (IV) Need Clarifications    

Clarification -1 : - as per advocates, points 4 & 11 is NOT legally valid. is it true sir ?


Clarification -2 : - If I accept to remove these two point. Legally will it cause any problem  in future ? Because here Wife is a Law Graduate/ Husband is an Engineer.


Clarification -3 : I do not have any ancestral property. She only ask divorce, I am ready to give. Say after ten years, is it possible to her, to claim shares from the  properties purchased in my earning.


   Legal experts can u please pass your comments about point 4 & 11  


 Thanks in advance

Point 11 is very important. Don't remove it. If you remove it she can file case again or threaten to file for more money.

Point 4. You can merge it with point 1. In point 1 you can add the term "full and final for ever".

"The amount paid to her is full and final for ever and she will not claim anything from husband or his family in future,"
