Hait Family Law



What Makes Us Different?

Hait Family Law is built on the philosophy that no one should be a victim of the system.

The Israeli Family Law system can seem archaic and intricate and even nightmarish, whether you’re going through the trauma of divorce or putting the legal tools in place to protect your future lifestyle. We know from personal experience, that you need someone to guide you patiently and compassionately through the myriad of laws and directives to get the best possible outcome for you and your family.

We have the years of experience and knowledge to navigate both the Rabbinic and Family courts on your behalf, in all your family law challenges

We believe in empowering people.

When you are dealing with the stress of making the best decisions for your family’s future, you need education and support.

If you’re contemplating divorce we provide access to important information through free e-Books and videos to help educate you on your options. And we patiently explain the details of your case every step of the way.

Or you’ve come to the stage in your life when you’re concerned with protecting your assets and lifestyle in Israel as you go forward. You can download our complimentary e-Books and view our collection of  videos covering what you need to know going forward with your planning.

We connect our clients with professional counsellors who we trust in both the areas of divorce and finances. And we stay available to our clients through Whatsapp, phone or email. 

We value family and recognize it as the most important institution in our lives.

We listen attentively, patiently and compassionately to your concerns and goals so, we are able to guide you through your challenges as smoothly as possible and help you plan a better future for yourself and your family.

Extremely Helpful and Supportive

“Jay was extremely helpful and supportive through the whole difficult and trying time. Even before I hired him as my lawyer, he made himself available for phone conversations and gave me helpful counsel. His support staff, was also very professional and supportive. I was very thankful for their help and would recommend them to anyone looking for a family lawyer.”

Yosef Yaakov Goldberg

First Rate Advice

“His advice is first rate. His understanding of the problem from both the legal and the human perspective makes finding the right solution far less challenging. I’ve been around the practice of law since the age of 5. My Uncle was President of the State Bar Association. Jay’s approach reminds me of my uncle. That is high praise indeed. Jay is a credit to his profession. Do yourself a favor and hire Jay to help you with your legal issues. I did and I’m glad.”

An Incredible Lawyer

“Jay is an incredible lawyer who took the time to provide guidance and clarity during this very overwhelming and confusing time in my life. As an Anglo woman living in Israel, navigating through the legal system and all the Hebrew has been difficult to say the least, but I feel confident now that I have met Jay.”

Mindy Ben Ishai

An Outstanding Advocate

“Jay is a great lawyer and an outstanding advocate for his clients. I felt confident in his hands during a very trying and difficult situation. He provided not only critical legal advice but sage advice that comes from years of experience and successful resolutions dealing with all kinds of people. His patience and persistence helped avoid conflict and digression during a long tumultuous process. With Jay and his staff, we stayed focus and achieved a fair and amicable resolution.”

Thank you Jay and Hait Family Law!

“My wife and I are in mediation (wife brought on the divorce). Spoke to Jay last week via phone consultation and I couldn’t have asked for a more professional, kind person on the other end. I thought he would sell me to take his services but instead he listened openly and gave me advice that was constructive, helpful and thoughtful of my situation. I was so impressed, I downloaded Jay’s book and read it in 3 days (A MUST READ!) It empowered me to know my rights and helped my wife and I come to a fair and peaceful agreement. I feel we will continue on as life long partners/friends dedicated to our amazing kids. I am really lucky and forever thankful I found Jay when I did. Thank you Jay!”

Jay Hait

“I would like to thank Jay very, very much for all his time. It is rare to get such detailed, accurate and straightforward advice as he gives. With Jay in the picture, I knew what to expect at each stage of the proceedings, he made me aware of the advantages and disadvantages of each option that came up along the way and he let me sleep easily at night knowing the overall plan and goals for as smooth a transition as possible for the children.

He’s already been incredibly helpful to the people I have recommended to him and I will continue telling anyone in need of legal assistance to be sure to see him.”

Eliyahu Ben Tal

Best Decision! Highly Recommend!

“I came to Jay in a panic hoping that he could help me resolve an urgent matter. Jay was vacationing but responded to me right away and set up a phone consultation for the following morning. My anxiety vanished during our conversation- Jay’s tremendous knowledge base coupled with his calm and patient demeanor left me feeling reassured, better informed, and provided me with the tools necessary to transition into the next step of my legal process. You will not be disappointed if you choose Jay as your legal counsel- he is both a professional and a mensch!

Chana Veffer

Real Professional

“I had an initial, 30-minute introductory call with Jay Hait regarding family law. The case is quite complicated and involves US law in two states and the Israeli law. I was more than impressed by a deep knowledge and a clear presentation. Going to contact Jay and recommend his services to others.”

Leo Stillman

Caring and Straight Forward

“I had a phone consultation with Jay who offered great advice and direction in moving forward with a complicated situation. He was very caring and straight forward and was able to walk me through the next steps. I got off the phone confident in knowing what to do next and felt I had someone I could turn to again if the case gets more complicated. Thanks Jay!”
