Family law continues to evolve to meet the requirements families in Scotland and has developed tremendously in recent years. There is not any such thing as an average family: every family is exceptional and we recognise this in tailoring our guidance and service to match the conditions each family finds itself in.
The dysfunction of the family unit puts everyone under tremendous stress and there isn’t any replacement for an experienced family solicitor who is able to clarify the problems and deal with them quickly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our website is meant as an introduction to the topic and to our services.

Enduring kids -which includes 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 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.
