About Family Law
About Family Law

In Armenia, marriage and family relations, including marriage, divorce, marriage contract, and the procedure for exercising the rights and responsibilities of parents and children are regulated by the Family Code.

The Republic of Armenia recognises and officially registers marriages based on a joint application of the spouses. Divorces are registered by either joint application to the Civil Acts Registration Office or via a court process (acts of foreign courts are recognised regardless of the existence of an international treaty and reciprocity)․ In both cases, the reasons for the divorce are usually not provided (no requirement to explain any ground as such).

It is allowed to sign a marriage contract, which can regulate only the property relations of the spouses. Regarding the child’s upbringing and alimony issues, parents can agree or settle their dispute in court (determination of place of residence, the appointment of visits, and confiscation of alimony).

Armenia is a party to the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction, and from 2018 onwards the country has envisaged a particular accelerated judicial procedure for the examination of applications under the Hague Convention.

Armenia has become a party to several international treaties related to the rights of the child or family relations. For example, the country has been a member of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child since 22.07.1993, a member of the Minsk Convention on Legal Assistance in Civil, Family and Criminal Matters. Armenia is also a member of the Chisinau Convention on Legal Assistance and Legal Relations in Civil, Family and Criminal Matters since December 21, 1994. These conventions make it possible to resolve cross-border disputes more effectively by ensuring the recognition and enforcement of existing judgments and court rulings in other jurisdictions.

The law on Prevention օf Violence within the Family, Protection օf Victims օf Violence within the Family and Restoration օf Peace in the Family came into force in 2018. The law introduced measures of protection against domestic violence and restoration of peace within the family. It provided for the right of the police and the courts to intervene by the request of a family member, including via urgent intervention or protective orders.
