FROM NOW ON THE LEGAL NAME CHANGE PROCESS DOES NOT IMPLY A PSYCHOLOGICAL CONCLUSION OF BEING TRANSGENDER

On December 10, 2018, the International Day of Human Rights, for the first time, the Civil Acts Registration Office of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia has confirmed the application of two transgender people for legal name change without a psychological conclusion of being transgender, which is not a requirement for legal name change from now on. It should be reminded that in the past, the Civil Acts Registration Office of MOJ of RA required 3 witness of an applicant to confirm the name. However, as a result of the effective collaboration of the staff of the "Right Side" human rights defender NGO with the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia, the requirement for 3 witnesses was withdrawn in 2017. In 2018, “Right Side” human rights defender NGO has set a task for further facilitation of the legal name change procedure. As a part of advocacy strategy 2 trans people applied 2 months ago to the Civil Acts Registration Office of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia for their legal name change without a psychological conclusion. The applications of two trans people were confirmed  which is a precedent for Armenia. This step taken on the Day of Human Rights is a great symbolic victory, which for sure ease legal name change process of transgender people by changing the legal practice.“Right Side” human rights defender NGO congratulates the transgender community in Armenia for this achievement and expresses its gratitude to the Civil Acts Registration Office of the Ministry of Justice of the Republic of Armenia for the cooperation.
