Family law continues to evolve to meet the requirements families in Scotland and has developed enormously recently. There’s not any such thing as a normal family: every family is unique and we recognise in tailoring our advice and service to match the conditions each family finds itself in this.
Everyone is placed by the breakdown of the family unit under enormous stress and there’s no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who will explain the issues and deal with them promptly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our site is supposed as an introduction to our services and to the topic.

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