Legal Services We Offer in Milton of Campsie
Wills & Will Writing
Civil Partners and spouses have certain statutory rights known as earlier rights where no Will has been made. Enduring kids -which comprises adopted kids but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. 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 provides some help for single couples where their partner dies without making a will, nonetheless, they would not have an automatic right and any award is at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
