What if I do not have a UAE Will?

If you are a Muslim:

You must consider the following two (2) issues:

1. Distribution of Property

The UAE courts will distribute your estate to your legal heirs as determined by the Sharia law. However, you can change this as, during your lifetime, you have the following options: (1) If you wish, give up to 1/3 of your property to anyone outside your legal heirs (such as charity or distant relatives) through a Sharia compliant Will in the UAE. You cannot give such share to your legal heirs such as your wife or children; and (2) Give your entire property to any of your legal heirs such as your wife and children through a Gift Deed (Hiba).

2. Guardianship of your Children

If you are married with children and fail to write a Will, your father may become the legal guardian of your children after your death. In such a case, your wife may only keep custody of your children subject to your father’s legal guardianship. This may not be desirable by you or your wife given the potential practical and legal complications. To avoid this, you must appoint your wife as the legal guardian of your children through a Sharia compliant Will in the UAE. View more details on Sharia Complaint Wills in UAE.

If you are a Non-Muslim:

You must consider the following two (2) issues:

1. Distribution of Property

If you fail to write a Will, the UAE courts will adhere to the Sharia law in respect of the distribution of your assets in the UAE. The UAE law, however, allows your to choose the laws of your home country to apply to your inheritance. This can be done through a clearly drafted Will. So, having a Will is mandatory in the UAE. You must either register your UAE Will with the Notary Public in the UAE or the DIFC Wills & Probate Registry. View more details about DIFC Wills & Probate Registry.

2. Guardianship of your Children

If you are married with children and fail to write a Will, your father may become the legal guardian of your children after your death. In such a case, your wife may only keep custody of your children subject to your father’s legal guardianship. This may not be desirable by you or your wife given the potential practical and legal complications. To avoid this, you must appoint your wife as the legal guardian of your children after your death through a Will in the UAE. View more details about DIFC Wills & Probate Registry.
