4 Benefits of Wills in Abu Dhabi

Here are the top 4 reasons for having a Will in the UAE:

1. Avoid application of Sharia law and choose your beneficiary

1. Avoid application of Sharia law and choose your beneficiary

The courts apply Sharia Law to the distribution of property of expats who pass away without a Will. This essentially means that your wife, children and all other legal heirs will share your estate in accordance with the distribution mechanism devised under the Sharia law. Your legal heirs could include your parents, brothers and sisters. As a way out, the UAE law allows you to choose the application of the laws of your home country to your inheritance. Which means, you can choose your specific beneficiaries (i.e. wife and children), provided you have executed a clearly drafted Will. Related: Learn about the types of Wills in UAE.

2. Appoint guardians for your children

2. Appoint guardians for your children

In the absence of clear instructions provided in a Will, you may be leaving the future of your children uncertain. Wills in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain allow you to appoint guardians for your children upon your passing.

3. Bank accounts

3. Bank accounts

All bank accounts of the deceased (single or joint) in the UAE are frozen upon death until the court has passed orders. It could therefore be impossible for your spouse to get access to the funds or any other property owned unless the court has passed relevant orders. A clearly drafted Will in the UAE should help your spouse to take control of the situation.

4. Make things easy for your family

4. Make things easy for your family

Losing someone while being an expat in a country that is not your permanent home could be incredibly hard. Writing a Will in the UAE should keep your loved ones well protected during the time when they need the most protection. If you register your Will with the relevant Wills Registration Office/Notary Public (as applicable) in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain, your estate will be distributed according to your wishes.

Register your Wills in Abu Dhabi by Video Conferencing During COVID-19

Abu Dhabi Wills Registration Office at the Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) has started video conference calls for the registration of Wills and Powers of Attorney in Abu Dhabi.

To start the process, you will need to have your Will(s) and Power(s) of Attorney (if required) prepared by Legal Inz as routine process. We will be assisting you with the registration of your Wills and Powers of Attorney with ADJD.

You do not need to be present in the UAE for the appointment or registration of your Will(s) and Power(s) of Attorney. There are no witnesses required for the registration process to be completed.

ADJD has indicated that it will contact you directly after we have taken approval on your drafts to book the appointment and guide you on the registration. At the video conference call, ADJD will discuss and notarize the approved Will(s) or Power(s) of Attorney and provide you with scanned copies of the notarized Will(s) or Power(s) of Attorney upon registration.

ADJD will then send two (2) certified true copies of the notarized Will(s) and Power(s) of Attorney to your address through Aramex.

Legal Inz ensures smooth registration of UAE Wills as per the above protocols. Order your UAE Wills today and secure the future of your family.

How to Write a Will in UAE?

You are an expat living in the UAE or otherwise have assets in the UAE but you actually reside outside the UAE. You intend to make a UAE Will to pass on your assets to your intended beneficiaries instead of the legal heirs under the Sharia law and appoint guardians for your minor children. You want to give your family peace of mind. Wills for Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain lend you the peace of mind by allowing you to specify your beneficiaries.

Making a Will in the UAE is not difficult. Our online form will help you give us your instructions to prepare your UAE Will in three simple steps. You need to simply fill in our form and provide us details of your beneficiaries, executors and guardians for us to prepare your UAE Will. You will need to keep the following considerations in mind while giving us your instructions:

1. Choose beneficiaries

Your beneficiaries are the individuals that will receive your property. Typically, wills in Abu Dhabi and in other Emirates such as Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain may contain the following beneficiaries:

  • Your spouse
  • Your children
  • Your relatives (parents, siblings, grandparents)

It is possible to give your entire assets to your spouse and, in the absence of your spouse, to your children.

2. Appoint an executor

It is important to choose a personal representative (known as an ‘executor’) in your UAE Will. Your executor will be responsible for carrying out your wishes as stated in your UAE Will after your death. Your executor will handle your estate, pays off debts and distribute your estate to your beneficiaries. Typically, spouses are appointed as first choice executors in the UAE. However, you should also appoint at least one alternative executor in case your spouse does not survive you. If you have children over 21 years of age, you should appoint one or more of your children as an alternate executor(s).

3. Appoint Guardian for your children

If you have children below 21 years of age, your UAE Will should nominate the guardians for them. If your Will is registered with the DIFC Courts Wills Service, you should only nominate guardians for minor children who are habitually residing with you in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.

If one parent passes away, the surviving parent would naturally be responsible for the minor children. A UAE Will should, however, appoint at least one or two alternate guardians to protect minor children in a situation where both parents pass away at the same time. You should note that if this is not done, the court will decide who will obtain custody of your minor children after your death.

Choosing Beneficiaries for Wills in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Fujairah, Ajman, Ras Al Khaimah and Umm Al Quwain

The primary objective of your UAE Will should be to nominate the beneficiaries who will receive your assets upon your death. These beneficiaries will typically be your family members and, in some cases, friends, charities and/or trusts. If you don’t have a UAE Will, the Sharia law will control who will receive your assets in the UAE. This essentially means that your assets will pass on to all your legal heirs. Your spouse will be entitled to 1/8 of your assets. To avoid this situation, you should clearly nominate the following beneficiaries in your UAE Will:

  • Your spouse
  • Your children
  • Your relatives (parents, siblings, grandparents)

It is possible to give your entire assets to your spouse and, in the absence of your spouse, to your children.

Types of Wills

You may consider one of the following options depending upon your family situation:

Single Will:

A single Will is a Will prepared for a husband or wife where he/she gives instructions in relation to the distribution of his/her assets. A single Will can be prepared by a married, single, widowed or divorced person.

Mirror Wills:

These are two separate Wills prepared for husband and wife which mirror each other. Mirror Wills are very popular amongst the married couples with or without children. In our online process, you are asked to fill in a simple form. Our legal experts then prepare your Will in view of your specific requirements. The online process has made it easy for us to provide you with a Will at substantially reduced cost.
