Hi Clare,


Thank you for responding.

Hi
Then the UK will recognise the Israeli divorce and there is no requirement to go through any proceedings here in the UK
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details

It does not matter where you divorce - if you are divorced then you can leave your assets to whomsoever you wish
