Today the Republic of Armenia does not have a specialized court system.
Today the Republic of Armenia does not have a specialized court system. Certainly, it is connected with extensive financial expenses. However, there are legal situations where need of specialized judges are authentically necessary. Primarily it relates to marriage disputes, since the human factor issues analysis is prior to the analysis of the relevant legal documents.
Judges who took specialized training in the treatment of domestic disputes and their psychological characteristics are rarely to be met both in Yerevan and particularly in regions.
It should not be forgotten that the cases are concerning personal lives of individuals, where frequently minors are being affected, as well as bitterly emotions are always present. During litigation this fact is becoming a barrier to the possible effective communication between the parties and the court, in which case parties are mainly avoiding being present alone in the court hearing, without their legal representatives and they do not trust the court and they do not believe in the equity of the justice system.
