The Unique Family Law in the State of Israel


Review of Yitchak Cohen's work. His book gives clarity not only to unique family law system in Israel and religious law but the bureacratic quagmire of the american matrimonial legal system. Cohen reveals a flaw in american matrimonial law that allows relitigation of divorce that is not in best interest of offspring, clogs up court dockets, puts persons being defamed in double jeapardy, where being slandered and libeled post facto is commonplace. Unfortunately in divorces false testimony and perjured statements and gross exagerations of flaws are tolerated in an inquisitional type of system that fails to acknowledge a clear break, after settlements are signed etc.
