Legal wedding contract

This wedding package is tailored for you if you can’t get married in the country of your residence and traveling is also not an option

✔️ Included in the current offer
❌ Not included

What you need to know

✔️ Lawyer fee is included

The wedding process is done by a team of lawyers. But you din’t need to worry about paying extra for their service. It is already included in the package.

✔️ You will receive a civil wedding certificate

There are religions weddings and there are civil ones. Religious weddings are conducted in a religious establishments such as church or mosque, and sometimes even via zoom. They are recognized by some countries.

On the other side civil marriage is recognized worldwide as a legal union. Even in the countries that do not perform civil weddings themselves (like UAE) a legalized civil wedding certificate is valid.

✔️ The wedding certificate is apostille

The wedding certificate you receive is apostille, which means it is recognizable by over 100 countries that are members of a Hague Apostille convention. However please note some countries do require extra steps for its legalization.

For countries like UAE there is an extra step of legalization required to have your certificate recognized but we’ll take care of it too for you.

✔️ Your wedding certificate doesn’t say “online” anywhere

It’s a regular wedding procedure with witnesses, registrar and Civil Registrar office. The only difference is that it is done by a lawyer with power of attorney on your behalf in your absence.

So technically for you it will be online, but the process itself is happening offline and the wedding certificate is no different than any other issued upon your presence. 

✔️ Married or refunded policy

We will make sure to do all the legal check up before we start the process. Technically speaking the only complication we may face during the process is with the embassy legalization at the very end.

If that happens and we cannot register your marriage you are entitled for a full refund.

❌ No wedding ceremony by zoom provided

Zoom wedding ceremony is as a cute formality but there is no legal basis behind it.

Our goal is to have your wedding certificate 100% legal, valid and officially recognizable worldwide. Hence there is no zoom ceremony but work of lawyers.

Once the process is done and you have your wedding certificate you are more than welcome to have your little (or big) celebration.

❌ No religious certificate provided

Religious weddings usually have a certain list of requirements and a very particular procedure to follow. They can only be conducted by a religious institution leader such as Imam or Priest. 

Many countries do not consider religious weddings (like Nikah ceremony) legal and still require a couple to complete a civil wedding procedure to have their union legalized.

Online wedding through power of attorney is done by the team of lawyers that need to appeal to have it done. Hence no religious certificate will be provided. Only the civil wedding one.

The process

✔️ Legal consultation

We need to make sure that we can help you and that you meet the requirements for getting married through power of attorney that’s why the first step of the process is a consultation with our legal advisor to walk you through details.

 

✔️ Legal check up by a lawyer

Before starting the process our lawyer will also complete the embassy check up based on your nationalities. Once we are 100% sure the wedding is feasible for your particular case we can move on and start the process.

✔️ Passport copy notarization

You will only need your passport for the process. We will take care of its notarization to make sure it meets all the requirements.

✔️ Documents translation and notarization

The internal process requires a few more documents and getting them ready and up to standard is on us too

✔️ Power of attorney

The process will be done by a lawyer with a power of attorney on your behalf. 

✔️ Local registrar

Local registrar will submit all the required documents to the Civil Registrar office. 

 

✔️ Witnesses

Pretty much everywhere it is required to have two witnesses for the marriage registration. And our online wedding through power of attorney is not an exception here. You’ve got nothing to worry about here. We provide witnesses from our side.

✔️ Local legalization

Once your wedding certificate is approved and issued it will undergo the local legalization process including a Ministry of Justice and Ministry of Foreign Affairs stamp.

✔️ International legalization + apostille

Once the process of local legalization is complete your wedding certificate will be fully legalized for your home country.

At this point your wedding certificate will be apostilled as well which will make it valid and recognizable by over 100 countries members of the Apostille convention

Most common questions
What actually matters when you are planning to get married in the UAE or other GCC countries?
Getting married is a big decision for any relationship. Getting married while living abroad is a whole new level, especially if your partner is from another country or has a different religion. There are quite a few factors that play a role in wedding planning when you live in the UAE or any other GCC country.
Everything you must know about: Planning a destination wedding in Dubai

Experts predict that many GCC expat couples will need to add even more zeros to their wedding costs in Dubai. Simply because everything, from photography to flowers, is more expensive when it comes to getting married in Dubai. So much so that even the most basic items now come with a zero added to the total price.

However you can save money by choosing a less expensive location, having a smaller wedding party or getting married. Let’s just say in comparison to most destination wedding venues such as Georgia, Malta, Seychelles or even in other GCC countries; Dubai is simply the most expensive.

In this unprecedented with times; we’ve put together our top 5 destination wedding location to help you make this decision faster.

COST FOR A DESTINATION WEDDING IN DUBAI

Weddings aren’t something that occur on a regular basis however a destination wedding is an altogether different ball game. Planning a wedding away from home requires not just money but also energy, time and attention to every detail if you are picky because let’s face it things can really go wrong.

A family-style wedding costs substantially more than a wedding with a smaller, intimate gathering due to the big number of guests and vast venues. Even if you are on a limited budget, your wedding in Dubai should cost between AED 200,000 and AED 500,000. We estimate that a realistic budget for a decent wedding will be between AED 1,000 and AED 1,500 per attendee based on our previous experiences.

As a result of the recent pandemic, an increasing number of couples are opting for a smaller wedding with only immediate family and potentially a few friends. Previously, however, it was fairly customary for families to invite no fewer than 150-200 guests, bringing the total wedding cost to AED 300,000 just for the reception.

OTHER ADDITIONAL EXPENDITURES

The majority of women fantasize about how they will appear on their wedding day from a young age. A bridal gown in Dubai is likely to cost between AED 3,000 and 20,000, depending on whether the fabric is silk or not. Some brides might choose to spend the same amount of money on a designer gown from one of Dubai’s many stores rather than a conventional bridal gown.

The cost of each make-up look is decided by whether it is a day or nighttime look, as well as how many hours the make-up artist spent putting it together. Make-up costs around AED 400, while the bridal package costs around AED 750 and includes a bridal make-up trial.

Not to mention the cost of your jewelry, which can be as costly as you desire. For their diamonds, Western brides should budget roughly AED 3,000. Arab brides also cost 5,000 AED, and Southeast Asian brides cost 30,000 AED.

COVID WEDDING PROTOCOLS

Couples were almost gearing up to of getting married in 2021; when everything came to a halt; when Dubai’s Supreme Committee of Crisis and Disaster Management issued a new mandate for gatherings, effective January 27, 2021, that stated that social events, such as weddings and private parties, would be limited to a maximum of 10 people and that attendees would be limited to first-degree relatives.

“The news, when it came in January, poured cold water over our wedding plans as we were planning to invite around 100 family and friends, with some even planning to fly down from our home city Mumbai, India. Everything went haywire, my wedding dress that was to come from India was stuck due to the lockdown, we couldn’t give out wedding cards as we were not sure of when things will open up”

Dubai resident Amira Rafi, 24, Khaleej times, May 2021

IN CONCLUSION TO PLANNING A DESTINATION WEDDING DUBAI VS GETTING MARRIED ONLINE

While the rules are still really strict about getting married in Dubai; many couples have opted to get married online instead and keep the reception for a later date. In 2020, In order to combat the fatal coronavirus, the United Arab Emirates has established an online marriage service that allows couples to marry despite restrictions on movement and interaction.

Getting married online might not be everyone’s first choice however; if you simply just want to get married and start your live with your partner we could not have thought of a better option

Can you have a baby in Dubai outside a wedlock?

The answer is: having a baby outside a wedlock is now no longer a taboo.

PAST UNEXPECTED PREGNANCY AND MARRIAGE LAWS IN THE UAE

Until recent times, having a child outside a wedlock was considered to be illegal and individual could be sentenced to some serious consequences.

Previous laws of Nov 2020, loosening the restriction on consumption of alcohol and allowing unmarried couples to cohabitate despite being an Islamic country. The reason for this big change is to lend a secure and safe environment for expats who live in the UAE, adapt to their sense of personal freedom and come to an understanding that individuals have very different cultural values.

Dubai for a long time is known to be the hub for western businessmen, working professionals and tourists who were quite outraged with the rising number of court cases leading to an outrage in their home countries against family laws that were previously criminalized individuals.

NEW LAWS ABOUT UNMARRIED EXPECTANT MOTHERS WOMEN IN DUBAI

According to times.co.uk, the minister of presidential affairs, Mr. Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed who is also the Deputy Minister signed the legal order.

The legal order is now states that all unmarried couples that are expecting a child need not leave the UAE but can apply for the birth certificate of their babies. A marital certificate will no longer be needed for that either. The new laws also allows kids to have education and healthcare services like any other child being born in the UAE.

Basically, the act of consensual sex or pregnancy out of wedlock is no longer a crime as per the amended law and according to Federal Decree 15 of 2020

HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED TO KEEP IN MIND REGARDING THE LATEST UAE FAMILY LAWS

While the new legal order has definitely transformed for the better; abortion or homosexuality are certainly not allowed. With the increasing number of expats living in the UAE, the new law is only to provide a peaceful and nurturing environment for unmarried couples in UAE who wish to have babies without wedlock.

Presently the unmarried ladies living in the UAE can likewise get pregnant. and to add to it, it’s not the legitimate prerequisite to have a conjugal endorsement to apply for the birth testament of any child who is conceived illegitimately.

CONCLUDING THE NEW LAWS FOR COUPLES EXPECTING A BABY OUTSIDE A WEDLOCK

Officials have expressed that these new laws and changes are to ensure that UAE offers a serene and liberal climate to a wide range of ex-pats. In addition to the fact that it is the necessity of the changing times to ensure ex-pats that live in the UAE spend their lives peacefully and focus on what matters to them the most.

“I could not be happier for these new laws that are progressive and proactive,” said Emirati filmmaker Abdallah Al Kaabi, whose art has tackled taboo topics like homosexual love and gender identity.

2020 has been a tough and transformative year for the UAE,” he added.
