A woman has one Kesuvah, a Get, and Edei Misah. If the Get precedes the Kesuvah, she receives two Kesuvos. (1)
When a Katan was married off by his father, and a Ger converted together with his wife, the wife retains the original Kesuvah. (2)
If a husband dies and leaves two widows, the wife he married first has the right to collect her Kesuvah first from his property.
If a wife dies and the husband remarries, his widow has the right to collect her Kesuvah before the sons of the first wife inherit their mother's Kesuvah. (3)
The enactment that the sons of a wife who predeceased her husband inherit the Kesuvah of their mother applies only if there will be at least a Dinar left for the inheritance.
The sons who inherit the Kesuvah of their mother may not collect if from Meshubadim (Karka that was sold by their father).
Rabah: The payment of a Kesuvah to the widow is regarded as a Mosar Dinar for Kesuvas Banin Dichrin.
A BIT MORE
1. The husband obviously wrote her a second Kesuvah when he remarried her. However, if the Kesuvah precedes the Get, she receives only one Kesuvah, because a husband who remarries his wife does not have to write her a new Kesuvah.
2. However, she does not receive a Tosefes Kesuvah, but if the husband increases the Kesuvah after he becomes a Gadol or after he becomes a Ger, she collects the additional increase.
3. The wife who predeceased her husband does not receive a Kesuvah. However, her sons inherit the value of her Kesuvah before the rest of the inheritance is divided among all of the brothers. Since the widow receives her Kesuvah as a Chov (debt), she takes precedence over the sons of the other wife who receive the Kesuvah as an inheritance and not as a Chov.
THE KIDUSHIN OF A KATAN
If a Katan was married off by his father, his wife retains the original Kesuvah. The Ri Mitrani says that the wife receives a Kesuvah of 200 Zuz if the Katan wrote her a Kesuvah while he was a Katan. If he did not write her a Kesuvah until he was a Gadol, she receives only the Kesuvah of a Be'ulah, which is 100 Zuz. If the Katan divorced her or died before he became a Gadol, she receives nothing, because the Kidushin of a Katan is not valid. She receives the Kesuvah only if he dies after becoming a Gadol. (Shitah Mekubetzes)
THE KESUVAH OF A KATAN
If a Katan was married off by his father, even if he was older than nine years old, his wife does not receive a Kesuvah. If he was Bo'el her after he became a Gadol, she receives the principal Kesuvah of 200 Zuz if she was a Besulah, or 100 Zuz if she was a Be'ulah. However, she does not receive the Tosefes Kesuvah that he wrote for her while he was a Katan, even in a case where she was married off by Beis Din.
Beis Din does not have the authority to marry off a Katan because the Rabanan did not institute Nisu'in for a Katan. If Beis Din did marry him off, it is not a valid Nisu'in. (Beis Shmuel)
