I am a Christian guy from the U.K., living in Israel with my Israeli, Jewish wife. We want to divorce. Can we do so in Israel, and will the divorce be recognized in the U.K?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 10 May, 2022
The answer to both questions is ‘yes’. You and your wife can get divorced easily at the family court in Israel as mutual consent is sufficient grounds for ending your marriage under the Israeli civil divorce process. Afterwards, you can get the requisite notarized translation and “Apostille” authorization that are required so that the Israeli divorce judgment can be recognized in the U.K. and fully valid there.
