According to an article published by The Star dated 15 Sept 2021, the Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Sri Ismail Sabri bin Yaakob was quoted as saying that almost 78,000 divorces were recorded nationwide since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020.

Referring to the recent survey conducted by the National Population and Family Development Board in March 2021 to gauge and ascertain the effects of the global pandemic on married couples who had children between the ages of 7 to 24 years old, the Prime Minister acknowledged that the survey found 80% of parents suffered both economic and mental stresses.

Equipped with the understanding that each situation post-divorce is unique and that the impact caused by divorce may vary, the Child Rights Committee (“CRC”) is organising a webinar designed to discuss the best outcomes for children after divorce.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • Finding out what is in your children’s best interests
  • Post-divorce challenges faced by children
  • Conflict management
  • Recommendations pertaining to divorce and matters affecting children post-divorce in Malaysia
