Q) What law is applicable to my divorce, if I elect to divorce in the UAE, Sha’ria or federal law, or the law of the country I was married to?

A) The law applicable to divorces concluded in Dubai, is the UAE federal law, regardless of whether or not the couple or either party is citizens or non citizens of the UAE. It is possible for a non-citizen who is also non-Muslim to ask the law of his domicile or the law of the state where the marriage was concluded to be applied.
