Custody of children
As for child custody, the UAE grants divorced women the custody of female children until they reach the age of maturity or marry. Women are given the custody of male children until they reach the age of 13.
If the mother is “deemed unfit,” custody of the children is reverted to the next “able female relative” on the mother’s side. If a woman remarries, she has the choice to “forfeit her right” to the custody of the children from the previous marriage.
