Expats In The UAE Urged To Write Will

Expatriates living in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) have been advised to write a will in order to ensure that their assets are divided how they wish in the event of their death. Emphasis has been put on this legal process in a recent report published in the country's Ministry of Interior publication, 999 Magazine. It is particularly important for those living in a Muslim country, such as the UAE, otherwise Sharia law or local rules could be placed on inheritors. Under Sharia law, the majority of an estate passes to the male bloodline, which can mean wives and female partners are left with just one-eighth of their partner's assets if no will has been drawn up.
