Family law has grown tremendously lately and continues to evolve to fulfill the needs of families in Scotland. There’s really no such thing as a typical family: we recognise this in tailoring our advice and service to suit the situation each family finds itself in and every family is exceptional.
The dislocation of the family unit places everyone under tremendous stress and there isn’t any substitute for a seasoned family solicitor who will clarify the issues and deal with them immediately, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our site is supposed as an introduction to the matter and to our services.
Legal Services We Offer in Hyndland
Wills & Will Writing
Where no Will was made Civil Partners and spouses have certain statutory rights known as prior rights. Enduring children -which comprises adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights not or whether a Will is in place. It isn’t the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit that married couples automatically receive the entire 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 right 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 persons ability to take actions or make decisions on their behalf in case they become incapable of making decisions regarding their own personal affairs. Generally the lawyer is a family member, yet, it can be anyone of the granter’s selecting, including a Solicitor or trusted friend. Powers of Attorney are regulated by laws called the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.

Property costs are now increasing and so, therefore, is the magnitude of a man’s estate. Person’s fiscal circumstances can change drastically over the years especially people that have company interests.

The irretrievable breakdown of a marriage may be established on the foundation of separation for one year with the approval of both partners, the other party’s adultery or unreasonable behaviour, or separation for just two years without the permission of the other party.
