RCA Condemns Refusal to Deliver or Receive a get

«The Rabbinical Council of America strongly condemns the refusal of spouses to participate in the delivery and receipt of a get, the Jewish religious divorce process, when the marriage is functionally over and the relationship between the husband and wife has irreversibly ended.  We deem the withholding of a get under such circumstances to be an exploitation of the halachic process and a manifestation of domestic abuse.»
