Domestic violence is those actions which take place in a family setting, they can be instances where the husband abuses the wife or the parents mistreating the children. Domestic violence need not necessarily involve  physical torture or infliction of pain but can also include the emotional and psychological aspect of violence and abuse.

The UAE Law always favors and protects the rights of the women. The husband cannot inflict any physical harm to the wife such as hitting, slapping as these are crimes punishable by law. The women should make sure that their rights are protected as they are required to report to the government authorities should the matter arise. These can also be grounds for the wife to seek divorce and obtain custody for the children and apply for compensation.

The Dubai Foundation for Woman and Children (DFWAC) was established in 2007 to offer immediate protection and assistance for the women and children in the UAE against domestic violence, child abuse and human trafficking. It is the first licensed non-profit shelter in the UAE that runs specifically for the care of women and children. The services DFWAC offers are in complete accordance with international human rights obligations.

Women who are going through a series of violence should make sure that they report to the government authorities without any delay as this can stop most of the problems from escalating, and they should seek protection from the law. Women can also get medical reports from the hospitals to prove the harm done by their spouse, which can be used as an important and conclusive evidence in court.

Another  development in children’s rights in the UAE and protection from domestic violence and abuse is the child protection law, namely Federal Law No 3 of 2016, also called the Wadeema’s Law, which guarantees all the rights of the children and protects the child from discrimination based on origin, gender, status, nationality, religion, social status or disability. Article 7 of the Wadeema law states: “the child shall have the right to life and security” and, “the State shall guarantee the child’s growth, development and law”.

Furthermore, the Law also imposes fines and imprisonments on the parent who neglects the affairs of the child, leaves the child without the supervision, who does not enroll the child in school or fails to register them upon their birth. The Law prohibits child labor as children can only commence working upon attaining 15 years of age and bans any such illegal working conditions which will harm children’s health, physiological, moral and mental integrity.
