A day after it was published in "Israel Hayom" that the court refuses to schedule a hearing in order to allow a divorce refuser to divorce his wife, this is because the couple asked to change the agreement that was agreed upon two years ago due to lack of relevance - the divorce was obtained and the husband divorced his wife.
Yesterday the story of M. was published in "Israel Hayom".
The court in Jerusalem, headed by Rabbi Mordechai Ralbag, tried over the years to get the refuser to give a divorce by consent, and in 2020 even had the wife sign a divorce agreement that was validated by a verdict, but the efforts were unsuccessful and the husband refused to provide a divorce to his wife.

About a month ago, the woman turned to the "Deadlock" organization and asked them to help her get out of the shackles of marriage, but then things started to get complicated.
The organization discovered that the divorce agreement was not relevant for financial reasons, and the woman appealed to the court with a request to correct the problematic clauses in it.
According to the "dead end" people, the Rabbinical Court refused to hear about it.
Ironically, last week the man, who was imprisoned for refusing to provide a divorce, turned to the court and said that he is ready to grant a divorce, but the court does not agree to discuss the change, and announced in a judicial decision that the date for arranging the divorce, which was set for today (Tuesday), has been canceled.
Adv. The court refused this as well, and instead of taking advantage of the opportunity to provide the woman with a divorce, they claimed that "they know what they are doing", and that a divorce can only be arranged if they agree to an understanding. It should be noted that the man is also not interested in signing the agreement as it is, because it is not relevant More. The one who actually sealed the divorce is the Rabbinical Court.

The lawyer refused to assume the case.
During the negotiations, the husband withdrew from the new agreement, and finally agreed to sign the original agreement, and so did the wife. The two came to court even though no hearing was scheduled for their case. At first they refused to accept them, but at the insistence of the lawyer, they accepted them and the husband provided the long-awaited divorce. Now They will have to re-discuss the economic issues, because the agreement they signed is not relevant at all now, but at least the divorce is behind them.
Attorney Orit Lahav, CEO of a dead end that helps women who are refused a divorce: "I am very happy for the woman who finally won freedom after many years of suffering. It is a shame that it took the pressure of the media to make the court do the right thing and bring the couple into the hearing room Urgently in order to settle the divorce. We will continue to work to help every woman and man free themselves from unwanted marriages and we will call on the State of Israel to work towards a comprehensive solution to the problem of marriage in the country."
