Question:

Is the written tosefet ketuva amount that is written in the ketuva debatable? Meaning that the tosefet ketuva was specified in US dollars & not the currency where the husband comes from & where they live. Can the husband claim he understood the ketuva was in the currency where he comes from & not USD?

Answer:

It is discussed in Choshen Mishpat 42,14

If they wrote US dollars he can’t have any claim. Only if didn’t write which currency is being used is there an issue

A person can’t he didn’t understand something which is clearly written like US dollars
