Jewish "Get" (Writ of Divorce) Completed
We represented a gentleman in Contra Costa County who was divorced from his ex-wife under California law, but was still married to her under Jewish law because she refused to accept a "Get" from him. Without a Get, he was unable to remarry and move on with his life. We believed her actions constituted coercive control under the Domestic Violence Prevention Act because she restricted his free will and personal liberty. We filed a temporary restraining order against her, which was granted by the Judge. She pursued her own legal action against our client, and after many hours of negotiations, we were able to settle the case with out client obtaining his Jewish Get.
