Question:

How much is a ketuva worth nowadays?

Answer:

It is a complicated question and practically speaking it isn’t really applicable, as a big contemporary posek once said “when it is applicable we can talk about it”. This is because nowadays the husband gives alimony, and the assets are split etc., therefore in most cases the money for the actual kesuba is waived, as the settling of the money issues include a lot of other things. 

Theoretically though, there are different opinions how to measure it, but let’s assume it would be $5,000 for a besula and $2,500 for an almana.
