Family law continues to evolve to meet the needs of families in Scotland and has developed enormously recently. There’s really no such thing as a normal family: we recognise this in tailoring our guidance and service to match the circumstances each family finds itself in and every family is exceptional.
The dysfunction of the family unit places everyone under tremendous strain and there is absolutely no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who will explain the issues and deal with them quickly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our site is supposed as an introduction to our services and to the matter.
Legal Services We Offer in Possil Park
Wills & Will Writing
Spouses and Civil Partners have specific statutory rights known as prior rights where no Will has been made. Surviving kids -which includes adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It is 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 now provides some help for unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they do 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 persons power to take action or make decisions on their behalf in the event they get incapable of making decisions regarding their personal matters. Normally the lawyer is a family member, however, it can be anyone of the granter’s selecting, including a Solicitor or trustworthy friend. Powers of Attorney are regulated by legislation called the Adults with Incapacity (Scotland) Act 2000.
