Best Family Lawyers

The Law that deals with family matters like marriage, domestic partnership, adoption, divorce etc. is called Family Law. It can be said that this law involves every important aspect of a person’s life. Sometimes it becomes so sensitive that the situation demands extra care from legal understandings.

We have experienced Family Lawyers in Dubai, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi and other emirates of UAE. Our UAE Family Lawyers take extra care while dealing with family matters like marriage, legal separation, adoption, divorce, domestic partnership, child custody, and surrogacy. Our divorce lawyers feel the sensitiveness and seriousness of the case and guide the individual accordingly. Although everyone needs to stay away from legal intervention in their personal zone, but sometimes the situation betrays and as legal advisor and friend we have to come forward to control the damage. Our Family Lawyers UAE team is always there with you during your tough time.

The events like marriage and child adoption are of enjoyment and happiness. And these need legal acceptance to concrete the happiness.

    Divorce law in UAE varies depending on your nationality, and whether you are Non-Muslim or Muslim. As your divorce lawyer in UAE, we help you navigate through the complexities of the divorce process.

    Child Custody

    Well-being of the child is our top-most priority. In UAE child custody and guardianship are treated differently. The custody usually goes to mother and father act as the guardian. However, this arrangement must not affect the well-being of the child. Custody and guardianship are often a matter of stress for expats. Both parties have no knowledge of the child custody laws in the UAE. In situations like this, our family lawyers can help you in smooth custody process.

    Experience + Expertise + Dedication = Success


    The United Arab Emirates is a Muslim country, and it follows Islamic Law. The Sharia law prohibits adoption in Islam. Thus, adoption in the UAE is illegal. Emiratis and Muslims are not permitted to adopt a child. However, one can take care of and provide for a child as a foster parent. Here the child does not take your family name, but you allowed to be the legal foster parent of the child.
    Similarly, expats can adopt a child in a foreign country. The adopted child receives all the benefits that a biological child gets. Our child adoptions lawyers in Dubai and other emirates can guide you through a hassle-free adoption process.


    UAE law does not recognize surrogacy. Any type of surrogacy agreement can be treated as a criminal offense. The involved parties can be punished under Federal Law no. 3 of 1987 in Article 356 of the UAE’s Penal Code. However, UAE does recognize the child born in the countries where surrogacy laws are in place. A child born in countries where there are strict laws regarding surrogacy, and it does not involve any monetary transactions between the surrogate mother and the parents are allowed. Our surrogacy lawyers in Dubai can assist you legally in choosing the countries well-suited for your requirements. Moreover, we can help you in preparing all the necessary documents required for the same.

    Domestic Abuse (spouse/children)

    Getting out of an abusive relationship is hard. Most times, we have seen women are scared and reluctant to seek help. Most common reasons for this reluctance are fear for family reputation, accessibility, and language barrier. We offer a unique Paid Consultation service over the phone to all those people who find it difficult to visit our offices. Our family lawyers in UAE can explain you in detail your legal position and course of action. Domestic violence is not age or gender specific.
