Getting a Get

In several marital settlement agreements we have made provision for the right to a Jewish get as well as detailed who would pay the associated expense. The Jersusaleum Post has a recent article that articulates the importance of a get in Israel and the consequences of the refusal of the husband to consent. Among many U.S. Jewish families, it is also apparently important.

The ABA Family Law Section June, 2006 newsletter links to a listserve thread discussing the differences in gets and practice tips in enforcing them.
