There’s really no such thing as a typical family: we recognise in tailoring our advice and service to accommodate the circumstances each family finds itself in, this and every family is exceptional.

Scots Law provides some help for single couples where their partner dies without making a will, nonetheless, they don’t have an automatic right and any award is right at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
