Divorce is a complicated, emotionally draining and time-consuming procedure. The process also has significant financial repercussions, especially if children are involved. Additionally, divorce can impact where spouses live, custody arrangements, and international travel considerations for those with ties to Israel. In these cases, it may be helpful to seek the advice of a qualified attorney.
Choosing the right lawyer for your family law case can be challenging. Many divorce attorneys have a bad reputation, but there are some good ones out there.

One of the main issues that must be addressed during divorce is dividing assets. This is governed by the Property Relations Law, which stipulates that each spouse owns their own individual property, including all income earned throughout their marriage. The only exception to this is if the couple has signed a prenuptial agreement that states otherwise.
Aside from the property division, there are often religious considerations that must be taken into account during a divorce. For example, Jewish spouses must obtain a Get (divorce certificate) from their husbands during the process. This is a separate proceeding from a civil divorce, and can take time to obtain.
