Divorce: Disagreement regarding Ketubah

Our firm represented a husband in a divorce case both in the Civil and the Rabbinic Court. The woman, among other claims, filed a claim to receive her KETUBAH* for a total of about NIS 200,000.

After a careful examination of the case, in the light of Halacha, we believed that the woman did not have the right to receive her KETUBAH.

On the other hand, the woman’s lawyers believed that she was entitled to the full amount of her KETUBAH.

After a legal battle in the framework of which we conducted a procedure of investigating the parties, we succeeded in undermining the woman’s claims. And on the recommendation of the rabbinic court, the parties were referred to a polygraph test according to Halacha and civil law.

After a summary of claims, a verdict was given in which we won the case for our client. The husband’s claim that the wife is not entitled to her KETUBAH at all was accepted.

It has been proven once again that proper and professional representation and mutual trust between the client and the lawyers, as happened in this case, is a key to success.


* A Ketubah is a marriage contract that Jewish law requires a groom to provide for his bride on their wedding day. It is intended to protect the woman, primarily by establishing the man’s financial obligations to her in case of divorce or widowhood.
