This book offers practical advice and direction from a group of seasoned family law practitioners that will be essential in navigating the choppy waters of a family dispute. Insightful analysis and discussion address current difficulties that both practitioners and judges face (ranging from dissolution of marriage to conflicts of laws in matrimonial disputes in other countries in the civil courts).

The Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) (Amendment) Act 2017 is thoroughly examined. This book also looks at the Syariah Court system, giving readers an overview of Islamic law as it applies to family concerns, whether they are settled through the Syariah Court or through alternative dispute resolution.

This book covers all aspects of Malaysian family law, with a focus on the Law Reform (Marriage and Divorce) Act 1976, which governs non-Muslim marriage, divorce, and ancillary reliefs. This book's practical approach benefits both those who are new to Malaysian family law and lawyers who will find the materials and references in this book to be a valuable initial reference.
