Obtaining a Jewish Divorce

Although divorce is discouraged under Jewish law, Jewish couples may obtain a divorce if there is bitterness between the partners. In religious Jewish divorce, the husband must grant his wife a get, which is a religious document of divorce. According to biblical law, only when a husband has granted his wife this get is the couple released from the bonds of matrimony.

We are sensitive to your unique needs and will take the time to understand your goals before providing our tailored advice.

The Get Procedure

In a religious Jewish divorce, the get procedure must be performed in front of a rabbinical court consisting of three rabbis. The get must be written by a scribe and handed to the wife by the husband in the presence of two witnesses. Without a get, a Jewish husband and wife may not remarry.
