The Abu Dhabi Court of First Instance obligated a man to pay Dhs87,000 to his divorcee after he had withdrawn the amount from their daughter’s bank account.
While married, the defendant and his divorcee agreed to deposit each a monthly amount in the said account to secure the future of their daughter.
The court also obligated the defendant to pay the charges, expenses and lawyer’s fees.
The case dated back to a lawsuit filed by a woman in which she demanded that the defendant, her ex-husband, be obligated to pay Dhs87,000 plus the charges and expenses.
The plaintiff said she and her then husband agreed to open an account in their daughter’s name and to deposit each a sum of money on a monthly basis.
She added that she deposited monthly sums of money which totaled the amount subject of the lawsuit.
After being divorced, the plaintiff discovered that all the amount had been withdrawn from the account and consequently she filed the lawsuit and attached money transfer statements.
The court explained that the defendant did not contest the claimed amount and ruled that the defendant pay Dhs87,000 to the plaintiff plus the charges and expenses including lawyer’s fees.
The Abu Dhabi Court for Family and Civil and Administrative Cases rejected a lawsuit filed by an ex-husband who demanded to obligate his divorcee to pay him Dhs28,000, claiming that he had transferred the agreed alimony to her bank account.
