                                  Answer:
   
   The Central Conference of American Rabbis makes no provision for a
   religious divorce, and civil divorce is recognized as dissolving a
   marriage by most Reform Rabbis. Note that even if Reform were to
   introduce its own get, it would likely not be recognized by
   traditional Judaism as valid. However, many Reform Rabbis, if asked,
   would advise the couple regarding obtaining a get, and would likely
   direct them to the appropriate community organizations that could help
   them.
