The Israeli legal system provides protections to help families through the difficult times of a divorce. These protections can include visitation rights to children. Visitation rights are based on the principle that every child needs to be cared for by their parents or other relatives. However, if the spouses are fighting, it can be difficult to enforce visitation rights. In these cases, it is important to hire a family law attorney who can protect the interests of both parties.

After Rachel Avraham left her husband, home and all her property behind in Yavne in 1991, she spent 18 years as an aguna, a woman denied a religious divorce. Her husband refused to grant her a divorce even though the Supreme Rabbinical Court had ordered him to do so. During that time she raised six children on her own, paid a large sum for lawyers to represent her in the many court hearings and rejected two marriage offers because her husband still had not divorced her.
Avraham eventually decided to demand a property settlement in the civil courts. The lower court ruled that her husband should give her a divorce, but he appealed. He also refused to cooperate with the officials empowered to evaluate him and to provide alimony. The court finally froze the case (with the mother taking the children into temporary custody) until he agreed to obey the orders of the court. עורך דין גירושין בחיפה
