Dunbartonshire Solicitors Oraclelaw specialises in all aspects of family law including separation, divorce, financial provision on divorce, child contact, adoption, aliment, cohabitation as well as the department and sale of matrimonial property.
In addition, we give advice on prenuptial and pre -cohabitation agreements.
Family law has developed enormously in recent years and continues to evolve to meet the needs of families in Scotland. There’s not any such thing as a typical family: every family is exceptional and we recognise this in tailoring our advice and service to suit the circumstances each family finds itself in.
The breakdown of the family unit places everyone under enormous strain and there is no replacement for a seasoned family solicitor who can explain the problems and deal with them quickly, efficiently and discretely.
The family law section of our site is supposed as an introduction to the subject and to our services.
Legal Services We Offer in Bishopbriggs
Wills & Will Writing
Spouses and Civil Partners have specific statutory rights known as prior rights where no Will was made. Surviving kids -which includes adopted kids but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It is not the case that married couples get the whole estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit. Scots Law provides some help for single couples where their partner dies without making a will, nevertheless, they don’t have an automatic right and any award is right at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.

Power of Attorney
A Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby one person gives another person or individuals authority to take actions or make decisions on their behalf in the event they get incapable of making decisions regarding their personal affairs. Normally the lawyer is a relative, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s picking, including a Solicitor or trusted friend. Powers of Attorney are regulated by legislation known as the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.

Property prices are now increasing and therefore, is the size of a person’s estate. Person’s fiscal situation can change radically over the years especially those with business interests.

The irretrievable breakdown of a union can be established with no permission of the other party on the basis of separation for one year together with the consent of both partners, the other party’s adultery or unreasonable behaviour, or separation for just two years.
