Types Of Will In Dubai
DIFC wills can be used by non-Muslim expatriates living in the UAE and non-Muslim individuals who have assets within the UAE. Expatriates with assets in the UAE will need to take further steps to ensure their assets are distributed according to their preferences. This can be achieved through a DIFC Will.
The DIFC is a financial-free zone in Dubai which follows its own legal framework. This free zone follows Common Law. This is an efficient way of organising a will but typically costs more than other options.
A DIFC Will is a legal document that is sent to the UAE Government so that it can be processed entirely in your home country's language. Without a DIFC Will, you will be bound by Sharia Law and will be unable to control where your assets are distributed. We will support you to ensure that you have access to the correct will.
