GET (גט) ADVICE
 

For a Jewish person considering divorce, a civil divorce is not enough.  In Jewish law, marriage and divorce laws apply to all Jews, irrespective of religious conviction.  Without a Get, a Jew may not be able to remarry within the Jewish faith.  It will have serious implications for both parties and their future families.  It is therefore in the best interests of all concerned to obtain a Get.


IF YOU'RE GETTING DIVORCED

United Synagogue London Beth Din information on divorce can be found here.
Manchester Beth Din information on divorce can be found here.

It is important to ask your solicitor to include an undertaking in your financial consent order, ensuring there is full co operation with respect to the Get.  Although this does not guarantee the smooth running of the giving and accepting of the Get, it may help prevent difficulties.  It is also very important that your solicitor is aware of the Divorce (religious marriage) Act 2002, which, most importantly, allows you to adjourn the divorce proceedings until a Get has been given.

We are not equipped to offer specialist Get advice, so please refrain from calling us if you need more information. Instead, please refer to the numbers of organisations displayed below who do offer this service and will be able to help you.
