UAE to Enforce Rulings by UK Courts

Khaleej Times (United Arab Emirates), 21 September 2022: The UAE’s Justice Ministry has issued a Decision to ensure judgments issued by English courts are enforced in the country.

Under the Decision, courts in the UAE have to take all of the legal steps required to acknowledge and enforce orders by English courts.

The Decision covers financial cases and asset division disputes between couples or family members.

Before being submitted to a judge at one of the country’s civil courts, an English court ruling must be final and irrevocable.

UK rulings must not conflict with a UAE court judgment.
