Handbook on Family Law Practice in Malaysia: Commentary, Procedures and Forms is a complete hands-on-guide on family law practice in Malaysia.

It discusses and explains the applicability of the governing statutory provisions, mainly the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976 and the Divorce and Matrimonial Proceedings Rules 1980. The court forms are provided as samples to be adapted and modified accordingly for use in actual family litigation practice.
This book covers the topics that are commonly involved in family disputes, including judicial separation, divorce, nullity, custody of children, ancillary relief and injunction against molestation.
