The article discusses the legislative proposal for the inclusion into the Code of Civil Procedure of the Russian Federation of rules on compulsory production of a comprehensive forensic psychological and psychiatric examination in cases of limited legal capacity of a citizen or of incapacity due to mental disorder. Objections to the introduction of such a rule argue that this is contrary to legislative innovation contradicts to the general principles of appointment and production of complex forensic examinations, as well as the legislative requirement that the production of any forensic examination should be carried out on the basis of common scientific and methodical approach. Furthermore, this legislative innovation is fraught with complications in organizing the production of complex examination in severe mental disorders of a subject. Based on the statistical performance of forensic psychiatric expert service of the Russian Federation, we show that the implementation of the proposed rules will lead to the need to double the number of medical psychologists (in the structure of forensic expert institutions of the country), provide additional training and expertise associated with this significant increase in financial costs.

Keywords: limited capacity, disability, comprehensive forensic psychological and psychiatric examination, forensic psychiatric examination in civil proceedings, mandatory appointment of judicial examination.

Column: Forensic and Clinical Psychology in Legal Context
