Know the law in the UAE.
Q1) I found some photographs of my wife in a compromising position with another man. It was a relationship she had in her home country before she got married to me. Can I file for a divorce based on the photographs? Can I file a criminal case against her in the UAE though the incident took place in another country?
Pursuant to your queries, we assume that you and your wife are expatriates living in the UAE. As you allege that you found the photographs of your wife with another man in a compromising position, the provisions of Federal Law No. (3) of 1987 on issuance of Penal Code (the ‘UAE Penal Law’), Federal Law No. (35) of 1992 related to Criminal Procedure Law of UAE (the ‘Criminal Procedure Law of UAE’) and Federal Law No. (28) of 2005 on Personal Status
