After her divorce, a woman filed a lawsuit demanding that the father of her five children be obliged to pay Dhs720,000 annually, at a rate of 60,000 per month, as maintenance for the children, rent for the villa with furniture and payment of all services such as electricity, gas and the Internet.

She also demanded the father pay the salary of two maids and a driver and provide a modern car for transportation.

Rabia Abdul Rahman, a lawyer before the Personal Status Department of the First Instance Court in Abu Dhabi, confirmed that the husband, after the divorce, refrained from spending on his children, and he also refused to provide them with housing despite his financial condition.
