Family law continues to evolve to fulfill the requirements families in Scotland and has grown enormously lately. There’s not any such thing as an average family: every family is exceptional and we recognise this in tailoring our advice and service to accommodate the conditions each family finds itself in.
Everyone is placed by the dislocation of the family unit under enormous stress and there is no replacement for a seasoned family solicitor who is able to explain the issues and deal with them promptly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our site is intended as an introduction to the issue and to our services.
Legal Services We Offer in Twechar
Wills & Will Writing
Where no Will has been made, Civil Partners and spouses have specific statutory rights known as prior rights. Living kids -which includes adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for 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 get the entire estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner. Scots Law now provides some help for unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they would not have an automatic right and any award is right at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.

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 case they get incapable of making decisions regarding their own personal matters. Typically the lawyer is a relative, however, it can be anyone of the granter’s choosing, including trusted friend or a Solicitor. 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. Person’s fiscal situation can change dramatically over the years particularly people that have company interests.
