Non-Muslims must register wills at DIFC Courts to avoid inheritance issues | The National

Non-Muslims must register wills at DIFC Courts to avoid inheritance issues | The National:

"All Dubai-based property is subject to Sharia law upon death. Sharia law is based on a fixed share allocation system for the disbursement of assets and as such it follows that should one of you die, it is not definite that the surviving spouse will automatically gain the share of the deceased. In fact, under Sharia law, a wife is entitled to receive only one eighth of her deceased husband’s estate if there are children. The only way to secure your dying wishes is to organise a will for your Dubai assets via the Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC) Courts. This will deal with the disbursement of your assets as per your wishes. Please note that if you have made a will in your home country your Dubai-based assets will not be included in this will. For more information, I would advise you to visit www.difcprobate.ae where you will get more information including an excellent FAQ section."
