Abdul Hamid, Siti Hamizah and Mohd Arifin, Nur Zakiah and Rahman, Nur Raemma and Haris, Hasfaliza (2009) Majlis sulh: the handling of marriage disputes in Selangor / Siti Hamizah Binti Abdul Hamid …[et al.]. [Student Project] (Unpublished)


In the last semester, we have chosen Majlis Sulh: The Handling of Marriage Disputes in Selangor as the ultimate topic for a research paper in completing the syllabus prescribed by the Faculty of Law, UiTM. This topic was preferred due to the current phenomena suffered by the civil courts including Shariah Court with backlog of cases which is burdensome to the court,generally and the disputed parties, specifically. As the number of family disputes keeps rising day by day in the state of Selangor, the effectiveness of Majlis Sulh in handling marriage disputes must be given serious attention by the legislature and the society at large. Majlis Sulh, as an alternative reference for the family disputes settlement is governed under Syariah judiciary in Malaysian legal system. The emphasis is made on the objective which is to analyse to what extent the application of Sulh is adopted in Selangor by looking at the procedures implemented during Sulh session. In Selangor, Majlis Sulh is governed under Kaedah-kaedah Tatacara Mai (Sulh) Selangor 2001. Besides, other mechanisms for dispute settlement out-of-court are compared with the Sulh process in making differences to the litigation process in court. The issues and problems in the implementation of Sulh are also highlighted together with the recommendations in order to ensure its effectiveness in achieving its aim in settling marriage dispute among Muslims. In these two semesters doing the research, we keep looking for sources in improving the scope of data, relevant to this project paper. Several books, acts and legislation are referred to in getting the detailed information including the documents found from the internet. An interview conducted with a Sulh Officer also provides a positive impact to the contribution of the work in addition to the good feedback given by the authorized body, such as Selangor Syariah Judicial Department.
