  • Duško Medić PhD, Judge of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Srpska


Expertise as evidence is of exceptional importance in all civil court proceedings. In family law relations, we have pointed out its importance in the procedures of establishing and disputing paternity and maternity and the division of marital property, where this evidence is regularly used. Expert services are also often used in inheritance law disputes. There is a possibility to dispute certain documents on which the inheritance rights of certain persons depend. In most cases, these are gift contracts, contracts for life support and wills, where the authenticity of signatures, initials or fingerprints, the mental state of the person who made a certain document, willpower and the like are disputed. Experts can also be engaged in inheritance proceedings.
