Can a husband whose wife misleads the court into granting a protection order get compensation ? Answer:By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 09 May, 2022
Yes. for example, a few years ago, the Kfar Saba family court ordered a wife to pay her husband 5,000 shekels compensation for falsely filing for a protection order , claiming that she was a victim of his physical violence , including rape. An ex-parte order was granted banning the husband from entering the family home. At the hearing before both sides the court realized that the wife had brought the proceedings in bad faith. It cancelled the protection order, and ordered the wife to also pay the state 2,500 shekels.
