The apex court took on record the "consent terms" signed by both the parties in which the custody of their two children will be with the actor, while her estranged husband will have access and visitation rights.
After the in-chamber hearing before a bench of Justices A K Sikri and R K Agrawal, advocate Sandeep Kapur, who appeared for Karisma, said that all pending disputes between the couple have been amicably resolved.
He said it has been agreed that the divorce petition filed by her husband at a court in Mumbai will now be converted into divorce by mutual consent, with the actor also agreeing to withdraw the case filed against him under the Protection from Domestic Violence Act in two weeks in view of
the settlement arrived at today.
Kapur further said that during the in-chamber proceedings in which her husband's lawyer was also present, "We agreed for the quashing of the criminal proceedings initiated by us at a trial court in Mumbai under section 498A (subjecting woman to cruelty) of IPC and the apex court accordingly quashed it."
Karisma's husband will have visitation and access right over their two children during the holidays, he said. The settlement was arrived exactly a month after March 8, the day on which the couple had told the apex court that they have arrived at an amicable solution regarding the financial
aspects of the case and issues like visitation right of Sunjay Kapur to see their kids, who are with the actor, were to be reconciled.
