The proposal was initiated by Knesset Members Zevulun Orlev (Habayit Hayehudi) and Otniel Schneller (Kadima) will obligate the rabbinical court to set a date for granting a Get.
The court will set a date for the arrangement of a Get within 30 days of the ruling dissolving the marriage, with a maximum of 90 days.
The new proposal also applies to husbands or wives who refuse to grant their spouses a Get: If the Get is not granted on the prearranged date, the court will then set a date for an injunction hearing against the refusing party.
The court will then have to hand down its ruling on the matter of the injunction within 15 days of the hearing.
"The law means to transfer the responsibility of enforcing sanctions to the courts without needing to involve the denied party," Committee Chairman David Rotem explained.
