Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and Chairman of Dubai Judicial Council, has ordered the issuance of this new rule under the ‘Regulatory Procedures Guide on Personal Affairs’, which offers a set of guidelines on unified litigation procedures at Dubai courts to deal with cases related to personal affairs.
Verdicts in Personal Status cases in Dubai - such as those dealing with alimony, children’s custody, dowry, visiting or seeing a child by non-custodial parents - will now have to be issued in a single session.
The order came in line with the directives of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to support judicial work and promote family stability and cohesion.
According to judicial officials, Dubai’s new regulatory guide on personal affairs will cut time and efforts and boost the family’s stability, especially for children.
