Attempts to reconcile divorcing parties will be made with the guidance of an appointed counselor. If both parties are adamant about the divorce, then the case is forwarded to the courts. How long it takes This usually depends on the complexity of the matter but can be three to six months, sometimes more, depending on the case. For example, divorce proceedings in Dubai are quicker than in the UK. Because divorce cases in the UAE are governed by the Islamic Sharia law, it can be difficult for the estranged couple to separate as the judge must be fully convinced the marriage will not work. Once you have decided to apply for divorce, establish you are of sound mind and able to make your own choices. The matter is then registered at the Moral and Family Guidance Section at the Dubai Court. Shortly afterward, a counselor meets the couple to discuss their problems to see if there is any chance of reconciliation, before beginning the divorce process. If the couple, or either of them, still insist on divorce, the application will be forwarded to a judge at court to obtain his decision on the divorce. If the couple are both Muslims and residents in Dubai, Sharia/UAE law will most likely be applied to their divorce. The same is likely if the husband is a Muslim and the woman a non-Muslim. Find a peaceful conclusion Engaging lawyers will help ensure a warring couple has an orderly parting, and that any children borne out of their union (or adopted in the course of their marriage) are fairly protected. The best recourse is doing everything you can to arrive at an amicable settlement with your soon-to-be-ex. 5 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Arfe 19 Thoughts 53 Thinkings 2 Vibrations 392 TRP View Profile Arfe Enlightened 2020-01-31T01:53:47+02:00Dropped a think on January 31, 2020 at 1:53 am I dont really have an answer in terms of laws but I am interested in knowing why you want such information.
