Glasgow Solicitors We also give advice on prenuptial and pre -cohabitation arrangements.
Family law continues to evolve to satisfy the needs of families in Scotland and has developed tremendously in recent years. There’s not any such thing as a typical family: we recognise this in tailoring our advice and service to match the circumstances each family finds itself in and every family is unique.
Everyone is placed by the breakdown of the family unit under enormous strain and there’s no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who will explain the problems and deal with them immediately, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our website is meant as an introduction to our services and to the issue.
Legal Services We Offer in Baillieston
Wills & Will Writing
Where no Will was made Civil Partners and spouses have certain statutory rights known as earlier rights. Living kids -which includes adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It isn’t 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 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 at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.

A Power of Attorney is a legal document whereby one person gives another person or persons power to take actions or make decisions on their behalf in the event they get incapable of making decisions regarding their personal matters. Generally the attorney is a relative, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s picking, including a Solicitor or trustworthy friend. Powers of Attorney are governed by laws known as the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
