By now you know that there are two competing court systems in Israel for divorce related litigation. You may also know already that each court has the sole jurisdiction over certain issues (that means that only one court or the other can hear certain divorce related suits), and that each court has dual jurisdiction over other issues (i.e. that either court can hear those divorce related suits). But, as an Israeli lawyer I find that most people don’t know that there are certain types of motions that can only be brought in one court and not in the other. An example of this is a motion for specific habitation as part of a divorce suit. What is that and when and where can it be made?
