Family law continues to evolve to fulfill the needs of families in Scotland and has developed tremendously lately. There’s no such thing as a normal family: we recognise in tailoring our guidance and service to suit the conditions each family finds itself in this and every family is exceptional.
The dysfunction of the family unit places everyone under enormous stress and there is absolutely no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who is able to explain the issues and deal with them quickly, efficiently 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 Newhouse
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 children but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights not or whether a Will is in place. It’s not the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit that married couples automatically get 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 would not have an automatic right and any award is at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
