Legal Services We Offer in Bowling
Wills & Will Writing
Civil Partners and spouses have certain statutory rights known as earlier rights where no Will has been made. Surviving kids -which includes adopted kids but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It’s not the case that married couples receive the whole estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit. Scots Law now provides some help for unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they do not have an automatic right and any award is at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.

Power of Attorney
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 become incapable of making decisions regarding their own personal matters. Normally the lawyer is a relative, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s selecting, including a Solicitor or trusted friend. Powers of Attorney are regulated by laws called the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
