Types of Wills

Select a will that best ensures your UAE assets are in good hands.

Wills for Non-Muslims

By not having a Will for your estate in the UAE there is a risk that your estate would be subject to Shariah law of inheritance distribution which can be contrary to your wishes. A UAE Court issuing a decision on an inheritance matter where the deceased has passed away without a Will may be inclined to apply Sharia law unless the deceased has made a reasonable effort to request otherwise. Such reasonable effort is customarily established through the execution of a valid & duly executed Will in compliance with UAE Law and where applicable the law of the deceased’s home country.

Therefore, it is crucial to have a valid Will in place, to not only protect your estate but to also ensure that you have made provisions for the appointment of guardians if you have any minor children.

Choose from a variety of DIFC Registered Wills or a standard UAE Will.

Wills for Muslims

As a Muslim in the UAE you should be aware that Shariah Law principles will automatically apply to the inheritance distribution of your UAE Estate.
Choose from a standard Shariah Compliant Will or UAE Muslim Will with Letters of Consent or an Offshore Corporate Structure Set-up.

Guardianship Letters

A Guardianship Letter is a private declaration which is intended to serve as an interim document regarding guardianship of minor children.
