          Abstract

          The best interest of the children in divorce cases may be best protected using the family mediation model. Although Malaysia has adopted the practice of mediation, it is not made compulsory for family disputes. This study aims at analyzing the effective interpretation of the 'best interest of a child' by replacing the adversarial platform with a family mediation platform. This study adopts a qualitative approach utilizing doctrinal study, content analysis, and interview. The outcome showed that there is a need to promote family mediation in Malaysia and this may assist the stakeholders in developing a harmonious platform for family disputes.
