Family law in the UAE

Do you constantly grapple to understand the comprehensive legal system that governs all aspects of living here – especially, one could argue, the most important of all, family law in the UAE?

Misconceptions and ambiguity still exists among the expatriate community when it comes to the legalities involved in guardianship and family law so Women@Work are delighted to partner with Mariam Darr (a UK Solicitor from TWS Legal Consultants) to support us with this.  Mariam specialises in family, divorce and separation matters and can assist both non-Muslim and Muslim clients with issuing divorce proceedings in the UK and under the Sharia law jurisdiction in the UAE.

Topics Covered:

  • Family law in the UAE,
  • The divorce procedure in the UAE and UK courts for non-Muslim expats and Muslims
  • Who gets custody and guardianship if couples decide to divorce in the UAE and what the repercussions are of both
  • What claims for maintenance / financial settlement can successfully be made
  • Why post-divorce it is important to have a will in place in the UAE and why it is important to have a will in place in the UAE generally also
