In Abu Dhabi, a dedicated family court for non-Muslims has been established to advance the judicial system and attract global expertise. This new court that specializes in settling personal cases of non-Muslim expats was inaugurated by Youssef Saeed Al Abri, Under-Secretary of Abu Dhabi Judicial Department (ADJD).

The move is part of the executive procedures to implement the law governing non-Muslim personal matters in the Capital, which was proclaimed by President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ruler of Abu Dhabi.
