The Swedish judicial system is characterized by a large number of courts that specialize in specific types of cases. However, there are no family courts. These cases are dealt with by common courts, but some of them, which are regulated by the LVU Act, are subject to administrative courts. The selection is based on specialization, which means that they are substantively prepared to adjudicate in these cases. However, there are voices about the introduction of courts adjudicating on child custody cases, taking into account the best interests of the child.
Dr. Aleksander Wróbel, as part of this study, presented an outline of the judiciary in Sweden, taking into account the regulations regarding family law. The doctor’s task is to answer the question whether there are any courts in Sweden that are functionally competent to hear family law cases?
