The Abu Dhabi Court of Cassation upheld an appeal verdict obligating a man to pay his ex-wife Dhs3,100,000.

Details date back to earlier when the ex-wife filed a lawsuit against her ex-husband, demanding that he should pay her Dhs8,139,000 and compensation.

The woman also requested the assignment of an expert to settle the account between them, explaining that there were commercial transactions between them which resulted in debts he refused to pay.

The ex-husband filed a lawsuit against his ex-wife, demanding that she should pay him Dhs25,548,000, asking the court to assign a bank expert to check the bank transactions between them.

The woman also demanded her ex-husband pay her Dhs26 million and the husband demanded that his ex-wife should pay him about Dhs30 million. The Court of First Instance obligated the man to pay his ex wife Dhs3,100,000 in compensation for the delay in payment, and rejected the man’s lawsuit.

Both parties appealed the verdict and the Court of Appeals rejected the two appeals and upheld the verdict of the Court of First Instance.

The man appealed again saying that the Abu Dhabi Court had no jurisdiction to hear the case.

The court also refused to delegate a banking expert, but the man said the consultant’s report he submitted proved that his ex-wife owed him Dhs30,747,000.

The Court of Cassation rejected the husband’s appeal and affirmed that if the debtor expressly or implicitly acknowledged the creditor’s right, then this is regarded as an obligation to pay.

The court added that there were several financial transactions between the two parties and there were written bonds regarding some of them.

It also affirmed that the assignment of the expert in the case is decided by the court, and that the documents submitted by the two parties did not indicate that either of them owed any of the amounts referred to.
