First, the nursery for children:
Custody for children shall be for the mother, then the father – the mother’s mother and if she is high – the father’s mother and if she is high. In the absence of either of them, the custody of the children is transferred to the sisters by providing the sister, then the mother’s sister, and then the father’s sister. In the absence of sisters, the custody of the children goes to the daughter of the sister, then the daughter of the sister to the mother. In the absence of any of the above, the custody of the children shall be the share of the aunts, in the advanced order of the sisters.
Secondly, the state is divided into two parts:
1- Guardianship over the self: the young child is subject to her until the age of puberty is completed, taking into account the marriage of the female, and the unmarried girl is subject to the right of her forbidden guardian to include her with him to the guardianship of the self, and the guardianship of the self is to the father, and then to the one who is the one who is alone in the order of inheritance.
2- Guardianship over money: over the money to the father alone, then to his guardian if any, then to the right grandfather (the father’s father), then to his guardian if any, then to the judge.
Third, guardianship is divided into two parts:
1- The chosen guardian: He is the one whom the father voluntarily appoints over his minor son to manage the money of his minor son upon his death.
2- The judge’s guardian: he is appointed by the court in the absence of a chosen guardian or a valid grandfather. The judge appoints a special or temporary guardian whenever the interest requires.
UAE law clarifies guardianship over money for the minor and explains the provisions and circumstances according to the different cases and age stages that the minor goes through. The term “young” in the legal terminology refers to a young person who has not reached the age of majority. Where the law considers anyone who has not reached the age of twenty-one to be considered a minor, and a guardian is appointed over his financial affairs until he reaches the age of majority.
A child who has not completed seven years of age is called an undistinguished child. It was described as indistinguishable given that it is in its early childhood. That is, he is not aware of the actions and actions of those around him, and his words cannot be taken into account at this stage. As for a young child who has completed seven, even before reaching the age of majority, he is called a distinguished young person.
