Therefore, in September 2015, One Step Forward (OSF) was launched to provide a critical service to individuals at ANY stage in the Jewish divorce process. OSF empowers individuals to make well-informed decisions at every stage of the divorce process and avoid the deterioration of the divorce process into a situation of get-refusal.
