How long should it take to end a mixed marriage in Israel ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 09 May, 2022
No clear answer can be given – anything from a few months to two years, and occasionally even longer, depending on the circumstances.
Several factors can shorten or lengthen the process considerably. A major factor which speeds it up is mutual consent. Under Israeli civil law this is a recognised ground for divorce. If both parties are willing to divorce and submit a joint application to end their marriage to the family court, which is usually held to have jurisdiction over mixed marriages, this will be advantageous, especially if they attach a written agreement to this effect.
