My fiances father died and she found out that he had a will that was registered in Dubai..... How would she go about obtaining a copy of the will and an inventory of the estate? Being a U.S. citizen what can she do about getting help on this matter by a lawyer who is not muslim and wont try to take advantage of her being she lives here and not there? Are there any american lawyers that practice or well versed in Dubai laws?
Just because the lawyer is theoretically Muslim, and by that I mean the fact that Dubai is not known for its pious Muslims, does not mean that they are not going to do a good job. You need to hire someone who knows the law, not someone whose religion you like.
This is general advice. You are anonymous. If you PM me i won’t know what it’s about.
