I converted to Judaism in order to marry my husband in a Jewish ceremony . We have a baby and are now in the process of divorce. I have heard about the forged conversion scandal and suspect something fishy because my conversion papers came through very quickly . As a new immigrant I let him ‘take care’ of everything. If my documents are ‘forged’ what implications would this have for me if I want to divorce ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 09 May, 2022
Basically if conversion papers are forgeries then this would mean that a woman in this situation would not be Jewish and her marriage would be void if she ‘married’ in a Jewish ceremony. If this were so, then there would be no need for her to obtain a divorce. She would be entitled to file for custody and maintenance for any minor child,and division of property at the family court.
