Family Law

Our family law division delivers legal guidance for all areas of family life. We help create the structures to safeguard family relations, and deal with disputes as they arise. From issues of separation and divorce to child custody, domestic violence and inheritance we extend legal advice that covers sensitive situations – with confidentiality, impartiality and tact guaranteed.

We help expatriates codify family relationships, rights and wills in a manner compliant with Shariah. We help translate family agreements and arrangements into documentation that comply with the local laws and can be easily enforced within the UAE court system. From wills and inheritance to custody and guardianship, we offer families peace of mind when dealing with contingencies.

Our family lawyers speak multiple languages and our legal support ranges from guidance and advice to dispute resolution, court representation, compensation and ongoing legal support as required, where we seek the best outcome for the family unit. Our legal team is not just well-versed in law, they also understand the sensitive nature of family disputes, and help family members reach equitable settlements with minimal disruption if at all possible.

What People Say

Testimonials

I am writing to you to thank you all for the ongoing support you have provided our family since our daughter’s accident in 2016. You have guided us through the complexities of the UAE legal system in a way that has provided us with the time and space to focus our attention on our daughter’s sub-stational and ever-increasing health and medical needs with the confidence that Lily’s legal arrangements are in safe and expert hands. Stephen Ranger, Nesreen Nabil and Zahra Petafi in particular have been very supportive and compassionate since the accident and have always provided prompt advice and support to our many queries especially since our enforced return to Australia.

Professional

Black & White Engineering is a leading MEP engineering design consultancy with a long list of top clients and prestigious projects in our portfolio.  Our engineering expertise is second to none but to remain successful and at the top our game we also need to ensure we have strong legal advice and representation when we need it.  Many of the projects we work on, along with the contractual agreements that we are part of, are highly complex so it made sense for us to seek out an expert legal provider such as Hussain Lootah & Associates who can provide us with tailor made services to suit different situations.
