Jewish divorce solicitors

Just as every Jewish marriage in the UK has a religious and a civil element, so does a Jewish divorce. Our lawyers are here to take just as much care when the Get is approved at the Beth Din as they will about your decree absolute being granted by a judge.

Who can help with a Jewish divorce?

If the time has come for you to go your separate ways, it is important to understand that there are two essential elements to getting a divorce in the UK if you are Jewish.

From a religious viewpoint, the Ketubah can only be terminated by a Get that has been specifically written for you in 12 lines of Aramaic by a scribe, overseen by a Beth Din.

From a civil standpoint, you have to issue divorce proceedings due to the irretrievable breakdown of your marriage and ultimately the decree absolute will dissolve the marriage.  

In order to ensure that both  are done properly, we believe that you are best served by one of Slater and Gordon's experienced solicitors. They are here to guide you throughout the process, and to work with a Beth Din to ensure that your faith is treated respectfully, and that you will be able to remarry in the Synagogue in the future if you so wish.

Can you help with the granting of the Get?

An important part of the process is to make sure that the granting of the Get, or Gett, by the husband is tied into the relevant civil aspects of your divorce.

Naturally, we follow the guidance of the Beth Din when it comes to the granting of the Get, which may now happen either before or after a financial settlement on divorce is reached in the civil aspect of your divorce.

We also have the experience and the understanding to help you avoid situations where the granting of a Get, or refusal to accept the Get, is used as an unfair advantage to achieve certain terms in financial settlements or matters relating to any children you may share.

Experts in Jewish divorce?

Jewish divorces can be complex, and not only because there are civil as well as religious aspects to consider. We understand Jewish divorce laws on a spiritual as well as a legal level. Just as importantly, we know that any mistakes on our part could prevent you from remarrying in a Synagogue and could even prevent any children of a subsequent union from marrying in a Synagogue.

You can rest assured that we have the specialist knowledge - and the will to be guided by the Beth Din – to ensure that your divorce is handled both properly and sensitively.
