Legal Question

Asked on: 1/08/11, 6:28 am

Hi,my wife and i are both muslims, I was in UAE 7 months ago for delivery of my wife, after she gave birth to my daughter in Ajman, my visit visa expired and i had to go back to my country without my wife and daughter since she refused to come with me being under the pressure from my mother in law who also lives in UAE.Anyways now my daughter has been living in UAE for the past 7 months illegally,i have got her birth registered but couldn't get her passport because mother's consent is needed and she said she would never give it.Moreover all my attempts to convince my wife that she should not keep our daughter illegally in UAE have failed.Now they don't even tell me how my daughter is and never show her to me. Legally speaking,Is there anything i can do to take back my wife and daughter to my country or at least my daughter since i don't want her to live in UAE illegally and deprived from education and quality medical care etc. ? Also i have found out that my mother in law sponsored my wife to get her residency while she's still married with me by not informing the authorities that she's married.Is it illegal to do that?And Can she also sponsor my daughter against my will? What can i do about these issues?

Thanks a lot for your assistance.
