Wills in Dubai, UAE and DIFC Wills

A Will is perhaps the most important document that may be signed by you during your lifetime. It provides you and your family necessary peace of mind in respect of your assets and guardianship of your children. If you are a non-Muslim either living or having assets in the UAE, you are permitted by the UAE law to have your assets distributed according to your own wishes. In the absence of a Will, Sharia law is applied to the distribution of assets of Non-Muslims. By having a Will, you can opt-out of the application of the Sharia law to the distribution of your assets in Dubai and across the UAE. If you reside in the UAE, you can also appoint guardians for your minor children.
