Legal Services We Offer in Inchinnan
Wills & Will Writing
Spouses and Civil Partners have certain statutory rights known as earlier rights where no Will has been made. Surviving children -which includes adopted children but excludes stepchildren- are eligible for legal rights whether a Will is in place or not. It’s not 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 unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, nevertheless, they do not have an automatic right and any award is right at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.
