My wife and I are filing for divorce in our home country of Canada (we were married there). We share ownership in a property in Dubai where she stills lives. How can I enforce the sale of that property to ascertain true value? The house must be sold but I dont believe the Canadian court can “enforce” the sale in the UAE? Must a Dubai lawyer be involved to ensure the sale?
Generally, the law on the location of the real-estate is the law to be applied, and since the real estate is in Dubai, you may need to seek advice from a legal consultant in Dubai to explore your legal options and the relevant legal recourse.
