Hi, I have applied for Mutual Divorce under Section 28 of special marriage act in Kolkata. During first petition I paid half amount of settlement money.

All clauses etc are in MoU which was notarised, but nothing at all is mentioned in the Divorce Petition about settlement paid or Mou being signed, which was submitted( The petition only mentions that my wife shall have no maintenance claim in future)...

Mou was not annexed and original is with me.
I was told that this is the Norm/practice in Kolkata. Is this fine? or Do i need to do something else as well to protect my interests? Thank you

Thank you for your reply sir.
The MoU was prepared by a lawyer and has all necessary clauses and wordings (like full n final settlement towards permanent alimony etc.)
My doubt is whether a notarized MoU used for financial transaction is a valid legal document?

Simply follow the explanation of A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is a nonbinding, non-legal agreement between two or more parties outlining the terms and details of an understanding. Your divorce mediator uses the MOU to document the agreements that you and your spouse create during the mediation process.

A. exhibit/attach the MOU to Court file in second motion and also mention all facts in the statement to avoid future complications.
