Maintenance / Child Support

Home / I am a Thai citizen. I married my Israeli husband, whom I met while he was visiting Thailand, in a civil ceremony abroad . I have a temporary resident visa in Israel. My husband has recently told me that he has met another woman and wants to leave me for her. What can I do, bearing in mind that during our marriage he used up all my savings?

In this situation the wife can file her husband for maintenance at the family court, and, if relevant, also for the division of marital property. Later on she can consider whether she wants to initiate proceedings to end their marriage.
