Commentary, Procedures, and Forms: Handbook on Family Law Practice in Malaysia is a comprehensive handbook on family law practise in Malaysia. This book covers the procedural aspects of family law practise that apply to non-muslims in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak, and elsewhere in Malaysia.

The application of the regulating legislative provisions, namely the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976 and the Divorce and Matrimonial Proceedings Rules 1980, is discussed and explained. The court forms are supplied as examples that may be customised and modified for use in a real-life family law case.

The issues covered in this book include judicial separation, divorce, nullity, child custody, collateral remedies, and injunctions against molestation, which are all frequent in family conflicts.
