Guardianship is the appointment of a person to look after your children in the event of your death. Expatriate children are particularly vulnerable. The local legal system has a duty of care. However, the wishes of the parents may not be the same as would normally apply under the local legal system. Consequently, it is important for parents to put in place appropriate documents to declare their wishes in a legal format, for example, a Will.
Expatriates living in the UAE should seek advice on the most suitable solution for their needs.
