Children in a UAE divorce procedure

Question: #Hilda, if I get divorced in the UAE, does the judge talk to my children after they’ve reached a certain age, in order to get to know if they want to live at the place of their mom or their dad?

Answer: not yet. As a divorce mediator in the UAE, I can of course talk to your children (without the parents) and involve them actively in the parenting plan, but they are not involved in the court proceedings in the UAE.
