Drafting Wills for
non-Muslims in the UAE
Will writing was never so easy in the UAE
The service is exclusive to non-Muslims for drafting their own non-Muslim Will. This helps them to dispose of their inheritance without any complications. Previously, the non-Muslims found it unyielding to draft a will even though the procedure for the application of the Will was straightforward. The Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD) remedied this issue by introducing an easily understandable template and publishing it on its official website. This enables the testators to draft their own Will as per their own accord.
To make it easier, we have answered a few of the frequently asked questions below;
Check out the template provided in ADJD website below

Any Wills or codicils made prior to this Will, relating to his estate in UAE will be considered cancelled after registering this will in the ADJD.
