Family law continues to evolve to meet the requirements families in Scotland and has developed hugely recently. There is really no such thing as a typical family: we recognise in tailoring our guidance and service to accommodate the circumstances each family finds itself in this and every family is unique.
Everyone is placed by the dysfunction of the family unit under tremendous strain and there’s no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who will clarify the issues and deal with them immediately, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our site is meant as an introduction to our services and to the topic.
Legal Services We Offer in Drumchapel
Wills & Will Writing
Where no Will was made Civil Partners and spouses have specific statutory rights known as earlier rights. Living kids -which comprises adopted kids 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 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, 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 ability to another person or persons to take action or make decisions on their behalf in case they become incapable of making decisions regarding their own personal matters. Usually the lawyer is a relative, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s picking, including a Solicitor or trustworthy friend. Powers of Attorney are regulated by legislation known as the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
