Khulanama is legal after 12 years of marriage ??

Khulanama in Muslim marriage is Legal after 12 years of marriage or Shall I proceed in Court for Divorce ? Please guide. 

My wife is an director in my Pvt. Ltd company and also having joint accounts in many banks. So Khulanama is valid legal document for removing of wife name in all banks and other sectors. In future can I will have any issue if have only Khulanama as an divorce paper.

Its advisable to approach Lok adalat, as the compromise terms will be recorded before lok adalat and an Award will be passed which is equal to a Decree. Because it ensures that the parties do not back out thereafter. No need to obtain divorce separately as the Khulanama is sufficient proof of divorce under Muslim law. Therefore, Khulanama is a valid document in itself, so it's sufficient enough there's no need to have any other document as it won't create any trouble or issues in future.
