Marriage Power of Attorney by Guardian

A marriage power of attorney is an important legal document for conducting a marriage in the UAE. By use of this document, another person can be authorised to act on behalf of the father or legal guardian of a female to provide consent for the marriage of the female before a court in the UAE. In the event the father or the legal guardian of a female resides outside of UAE or is unable to attend the marriage ceremonies, then a marriage power of attorney must be mandatorily prepared for execution of the marriage.

Any male person who is above the age of 21 years can be appointed as an attorney in a marriage POA. Normally, a trustworthy person or a close relative is appointed as an attorney in a marriage power of attorney. Even the experts at JustPOA can act as trusted attorneys in a marriage POA.

Signing Process for a Marriage Power of Attorney

The procedure for signing and legalisation depends on whether a marriage POA is signed inside or outside of the United Arab Emirates.

Option 1: Marriage POA signed in UAE for use in UAE

In all the Emirates of United Arab Emirates, a marriage power of attorney can be signed, stamped and notarized before a notary public. A marriage POA notarized by the notary public of any Emirate is recognized and accepted all over the UAE.

Online Notarization in the Emirate of Dubai

The Dubai notary public provides a service where a marriage POA can be notarized online through the BOTIM mobile application. The process for online legalisation is as follows:

  • An e-mail is sent to the designated e-mail address of the Dubai notary wherein the copy of the final marriage POA and the identification cards of the principal and the agent are attached. The mobile number of the principal linked to the BOTIM mobile application should be mentioned in the email.
  • A face-to-face video call is organised by the Dubai notary public at a designated time. The video call is organised for the purposes of verifying the identities of the parties (principal and agent) to the marriage POA and for approving the POA.
  • The approved and stamped marriage POA will be released by the Dubai notary public. You have the option of having the marriage POA sent to your home address or you can also collect the marriage POA from the notary public office in Dubai.

Online Notarization in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi

Legal matters in Abu Dhabi are handled by the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD), which also offers notary public services for online notarization of marriage power of attorneys. These steps can be taken to have the marriage POA legalised online in Abu Dhabi.  

  • The bilingual (English and Arabic) copy of the marriage power of attorney is uploaded on the portal of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department along with the identification cards of the principal, agent and legal translator.
  • After approving the marriage POA, ADJD will send the online link for the payment of the government fees.
  • ADJD upon approving the POA will send the payment link for payment of the government fees.
  • ADJD will send you a digitally signed copy of the marriage POA. This digitally signed copy of the marriage POA is deemed as an original marriage power of attorney.
