Abstract: This article aims to, firstly, introduce court-annexed mediation in resolving family disputes in Malaysia. Secondly, it will attempt to identify the advantages and disadvantages of court-annexed mediation to resolve disputes relating to family matters, both in the Syariah and Civil Courts in Malaysia. Thirdly, it will provide recommendations to promote CAM. A study was made on the important aspects pertinent to the conduct of mediation in the form of sulh at the Syariah Courts in the State of Selangor which shares uniformed sulh processes used in other syariah courts from other states. Results of the study indicated that the current implementation of CAM in the Syariah Court is guided by a comprehensive set of statutory rules pertaining to sulh whereas the Civil Court is not guided even by a Mediation Act. In addition to that, the study also showed that there are similarities in terms of mediation process practiced in Majlis Sulh with the recommended practices of mediation.
