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).
