Family law practitioners and students who seek to comprehend and grasp the basic legal principles of family law should read Family Law in Malaysia.
With a thorough analysis of the important instances, the book examines numerous family law topics. Chinese, Indians, Ibans, Kadazan Dusuns, Dayaks, Muruts, Bidayuhs, Orang Ulus, and Bajaus are just a few of the non-Muslim people of Peninsular and East Malaysia who are covered by this section of family law's civil law section.
The Domestic Violence Act 1994 is mentioned in the chapter on domestic violence in Malaysian family law. The status of children is covered in Part II of the book, along with parental child abduction and their rights to citizenship under Article 14(1) of the Federal Constitution. The Convention on the Rights of the Child, The Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction, and a few Commonwealth human rights rulings are all included because they play an increasingly significant role in family law practise.
The chapter on "The Effect of Conversion and Apostasy on Family Law" will be pertinent to non-Muslims because it covers the effects of conversion to Islam and how it affects marriage when one spouse converts to Islam without telling the other.
