My husband and I are Israelis but live abroad. We have property registered in our joint names. I am not sure about divorcing but I do not trust my husband with finances. I am not sure if he is just irresponsible about running finances or has ulterior motives. Am I entitled to get my share of the property independently of divorce ?By: דיאנה שאלתיאל•Published on: 12 May, 2022
If the property is registered in joint names either side is entitled to file for division of the property independently of divorce no matter when you married.
Even though someone lives abroad he/she can start to file for the division of the property located in Israel by signing a power of attorney at the Israeli Consulate allowing a lawyer in Israel to represent him/her. A plea can be prepared in Israel and the affidavit/s supporting it can be signed by the person at the Consulate overseas.
