Hi thank you for your patience. The UK courts would not normally have jurisdiction over judgments secured in the UAE. If this undertaking was in writing as in a consent order in Dubai then I would expect that you would have catered for this type of situation where the other party may not fulfil their undertaking. You ought to enforce that breach in Dubai courts. I can only imagine you wanted separate proceedings in the uk due to properties in the UK otherwise the undertaking and agreement just doesn’t seem fit for purpose or enforceable. You should still be able to file for financial settlement here for those elements in the UK ( I am assuming England and Wales here as Scotland has different laws) without duplicating on settlement.
Any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message. Thank you for contacting just answer. All the best.
