YOUR SPIRITUAL HOME
While divorce is not something that is often considered a Jewish lifecycle event, the fact is, Judaism does indeed have rituals, traditions, and a special ceremony pertaining to divorce.  Our tradition acknowledges that, sadly, there are times when a marriage must come to an end.  In these cases, a GET (a Jewish bill of divorcement) is either ordered by one of the spouses and presented to the other spouse or ordered by the couple together.  A GET is a Jewish legal document that must be witnessed by two Jews who are not related to the couple or each other.  A GET cannot be issued until a couple has been divorced in the civil courts.  One may not get remarried Jewishly without a GET.

Rabbi Andrew can answer any questions you might have about obtaining a GET and can prepare one for you when you are ready.
