What’s the difference between divorcing in England and the UAE?

In the UAE, upon divorce the parties will retain the assets in their own names. There may be grounds for a payment under an Islamic marriage contract, but other than that no assets will be redistributed. It is highly likely that a financially weaker party will be in a much better position if they divorce in England and Wales, should they satisfy the requirements of jurisdiction.
