It has already been decided and implemented on the federal level that from marriage, divorce to inheritance, everything will be or can be decided without using their Sharia Law if the applicants request not to use Sharia Law if they are not Muslims. If they prefer to use Sharia Law, then Sharia Law will be used. The absence of law will also implement the Sharia Law. Such things must be in the knowledge of Family Lawyers and our Family Law Advocates are considered the best Lawyers in UAE for research and development purposes.
Therefore, when people meet us in Legal Consultation or Legal Counselling Sessions, then we spend the maximum time as much as we could, to understand the matter completely and to convey the matter completely to our client. For Example, if a 3-year baby girl’s custody, her father wants to win, then chances are not bright. Neither Sharia Law nor any other law supports the custody of a KID in this age. For Example, usually, the boy of age up to 11, and the girl of age up to 13, would be given to, mother in a custody case. There are few conditions where the father might win custody. But the first right is by the mother.

Muslim Divorces are managed through Sharia Law. Sharia Law is applied to every person in the world who follows ISLAM. It does not matter he is Emirati or a Non-Emirati. As per Sharia Law if the Husband is a Muslim man and woman is not, then again priority will be awarded to Sharia Law.
For Non-Muslim Divorces, as per “Article 1 of the Federal Law No 28 of 2005″ for Personal Affairs”, parties can choose their native country law or the law where they got married. If their Law will not provide a suitable solution or is found silent then Sharia Law will replace it. Sharia Law will not be replacing the entire Law, it will only be replacing the portion indeed, where their native law will be silent.
For Amicable Divorce, people are confused and expect that Lawyers will finish in one week or a few days. Though a side agreement needs to be prepared, the Court Procedure has to be followed. It is required and necessary. Family Lawyers are responsible to explain the entire procedure and its results.

Alimony & Child Support

Alimony to wife and child support to children has to be paid if there is a divorce. It is decided as per the religion, as per the marriage place and as per the income level of the husband. Child Support includes children’s accommodation, travel, education, food and other life-related things. As per Sharia Law husband will have to provide the Nafaqah (Arabic: نَفَقَة). Therefore, if the NAFAQAH is not paid then it would be made part of Alimony. Article 66 UAE personal status law” Wife Alimony is up to husband ‘s obligation from the date he stops paying her. It is considered as a Debt by the Court or Judiciary. It can’t be removed or finished unless fully paid by the husband. Article 67 UAE personal status law” wife’s claim in court more than three years old will not be entertained”.
