I am an only daughter and found the whole army experience overwhelming and just couldn’t handle it emotionally, having become very insecure when my parents divorced during my adolescent years. I have now been discharged as being unsuited to serve. According to a court judgment my father is supposed to pay me a third of the maintenance he paid for me before I was conscripted during my service . Because the army discharged me early rather than me refusing to serve, will I still be entitled to maintenance up to the end of my intended army service?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 16 May, 2022
No! If the wording in the judgment connects the obligation to pay maintenance to compulsory army service, then the legal basis for claiming it will cease when the army service stops- whether due to early release or because the period of army service was completed. It does not matter if the initiative for the discharge came from the army or the conscript.
