Director at Ika Law
Amalina handles private client, family and matrimonial disputes, ranging from divorce, probate, adoption proceedings and applications under the Mental Capacity Act. A majority of Amalina’s cases contain international elements, with particular focus on cross-border
disputes where issues of custody, care and control of children are highly contentious.
Amalina advocates for a collaborative approach towards the practice of family law with the view of achieving a solution that is practical and workable. Amalina believes that it is important for divorcing couples to be able to move on with their lives post-divorce in the least acrimonious way as possible, especially where there are children involved and whose interests have to be protected.
Amalina also provides advice on succession planning, including estate planning for Muslims.
