Why Are There Different Fees For A Get?

Saturday, August 17, 2019

The basic cost of a Get allows the cRc to retain the services of a scribe and five rabbinic aides who serve as witnesses and members of the rabbinic tribunal. A portion of the fee is allocated to administrative expenses that accompany the running of a Beth Din.

When both parties are in attendance, the total Get fee is $375. Appointments will be made after the cRc receives an initial filing fee of $150. This non-refundable fee will be applied towards the total cost of the Get. If expedited service is requested, additional fees may be called for.

If the wife is unavailable to receive her Get from her former husband on the day it is written, an agent must be appointed to deliver the Get to her. A second procedure is then required, and the rabbinic court must be convened a second time. In such cases, the total fee charged is $450.

On occasion, the Beth Din may be available for Get procedures on days other than regularly scheduled Get times. The total cost of these special appointments will be $500.
