Family law continues to evolve to meet the requirements families in Scotland and has grown hugely lately. There is not any such thing as a normal family: we recognise in tailoring our advice and service to suit the situation each family finds itself in this and every family is unique.
The dysfunction of the family unit puts everyone under enormous stress and there is absolutely no substitute for an experienced family solicitor who can explain the issues and deal with them quickly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our website is supposed as an introduction to the subject and to our services.
Legal Services We Offer in Lennoxtown
Wills & Will Writing
Civil Partners and spouses have certain statutory rights known as earlier rights where no Will has been made. Enduring children -which comprises adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for legal rights not or whether a Will is in place. It’s not the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit, that married couples automatically receive the whole estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner. Scots Law now provides some help for single couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they would 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 another person or individuals power to take actions or make decisions on their behalf in case they get incapable of making decisions regarding their personal affairs. Typically the attorney is a relative, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s choosing, including a Solicitor or trusted friend. Powers of Attorney are governed by laws referred to as the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.

Property costs are now increasing and so, therefore, is the magnitude of an individual’s estate. Individual’s financial conditions can change dramatically over the years especially those with company interests.
