Unlike Common law jurisdictions, under UAE laws there is a “right” to custody and guardianship of children depending on the sex and the age of the child. Under local law, a distinction is made between guardianship and custody of children.  Although the right is perceived as automatic when children reach a certain age, a number of criteria have to be fulfilled in order for the custody to be given to the father.
