Family law continues to evolve to meet the needs of families in Scotland and has developed enormously recently. There’s not any such thing as an average family: we recognise in tailoring our guidance and service to suit the situation each family finds itself in, this and every family is exceptional.
The dislocation of the family unit places everyone under enormous strain and there is no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who is able to clarify the problems and deal with them quickly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our website is intended as an introduction to our services and to the topic.

Wills & Will Writing
Where no Will has been made, Civil Partners and spouses have certain statutory rights known as earlier rights. Living children -which includes adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for legal rights not or whether a Will is in place. It is not the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit, that married couples get the whole estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner. Scots Law provides some help for unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, nevertheless, they would not have an automatic right and any award is at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.

A Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby one person gives ability to another person or persons to take actions or make decisions on their behalf in the event they get incapable of making decisions regarding their personal matters. Generally the attorney is a relative, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s picking, including a Solicitor or trustworthy friend. Powers of Attorney are regulated by legislation called the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
