1) How Agunah activists in states across the nation can support the efforts of the International Beit Din to change the practice of get extortion as a legitimate and accepted method of arranging a get in beit din. Where a man is recalcitrant the beit din should look for Halachic precedent for a 'heter', by invalidating the marriage based on 'mistaken transaction' and/or a flaw in the marriage ceremony. Speak to me about the work of Rabbi Krauss' beit din in LA.
2) The use of conditional marriage prenups in addition to the BDA prenup.
3) Impact litigation in States other than New York- Find family law cases that may be used as legal precedent for the court's to consider get refusal as a factor to be taken into consideration in determining the length and duration of spousal support and/or custody and visitation. Arguing that get refusal is a form of domestic abuse and/or as inequitable bargaining
tactics that a court of equity must consider in granting equitable relief.
