UAE laws

Muslim couples getting divorced in the UAE are bound by the Sharia law (Sharia law is the legal framework that controls the public and private life of a Muslim. It covers a range of issues including worship, commercial dealings, marriage, inheritance and penal laws). The courts will accept divorce appeals from Muslims of any nationality as well as non-Muslim women married to Muslim men.

Non-Muslim couples have the choice of getting a divorce according to the laws of their home country (at the embassy or consulate).

  1. Divorce on August 3, 2011 1:28 pm

    Hello. This can be kind of an “unconventional” question , but have some other visitors asked you how have the menu bar to look such as you’ve gotten it? I also have a blog and am really planning to modify around the theme, however I’m frightened to death to wreck havoc on it for concern of the search engines punishing me. I’m extremely a new comer to all of this …so i am simply not optimistic just how to try to to it all yet. I’ll just keep working on it one day at a time Thanks for any help you can offer here
