How does Abu Dhabi digital system calculate month-to-month divorce alimony?

With a new electronic system now used to determine the monthly maintenance a man must pay for the expenses of his ex-wife and children, a family judge has explained how the intelligent mechanism balances the needs of the beneficiaries and the financial needs of the provider establishes capacity.

Judge Hilal Ali Al Dhaheri, director of personal status at the Abu Dhabi Family Court and civil and administrative litigation at the ADJD, said the new system included a “guide system” that calculates costs, be it for the divorced woman or children for the divorced wife, depending on the husband’s income.

“Once you’ve entered the husband’s income and number of children data, the new system will estimate expenses and automate the guide’s expenses by calculating minimum, maximum, and average marital costs, child support and housing allowances and school fees, ”Al Dhaheri said in a recent radio interview.

The system takes into account all of the family’s needs and takes into account the financial situation of the provider, he added.

The judge said the guide’s manual regulates the mechanism for estimating alimony, housing, household allowance and school expenses according to the donor’s income. There is also a mechanism for managing custody and vision disputes, orders on petitions, procedures for enforcing sentences, and decisions in personal cases.

A husband whose monthly salary is less than Dh10,000 is exempt from paying service or domestic help, Al Dhaheri added.

“The Personal Status Court will issue its decision after the file is presented to the executing judge and both parties – the wife and husband – are required to attend,” he said.

“When they agree on a certain amount of maintenance and how to pay it. The judge then approves the report, taking into account that this agreement does not prejudice the children’s interests. “
