What is the rate of compensation that the court imposed on a woman who falsely slandered her divorcee?

The case goes like this –   a couple, married and divorced. The couple were married for 27 years, during which they had several children. In 2014 they broke up and then legal disputes began, among which – a dispute over child custody. Exceptionally, the court allowed some of the children to remain in custody of the mother and some of the children to remain in custody of the father.One day, when some of the couple’s children were supposed to stay with the father on a week-long family vacation, the woman suddenly discovered that according to the divorce agreement, the children had to stay with the father for only three days.

The father filed a claim of libel suit against the woman. All this – on the grounds that the complaints she filed regarding the abduction of the children were false.

The court that dealt with the claim was a family court in Jerusalem.

The mother’s argument:
