Family Law


Divorce in Israel is in the sole jurisdiction of the rabbinical courts. All divorce-related issues, however, such as division of property, child custody including visitation rights, can be decided either by the rabbinical courts or by the family courts, mostly depending on where the claim was first filed. Child support payment claims are adjudicated in family court unless both sides agree to go to rabbinical court. The accpeted rule of thumb says that it is better for men to be in the rabbinical courts and for woman to be in the family courts but there are many exceptions to this rule.
