Glasgow Solicitors We also give advice on prenuptial and pre -cohabitation arrangements.
Family law continues to evolve to satisfy the requirements families in Scotland and has developed enormously lately. There is really no such thing as an average family: we recognise this in tailoring our guidance and service to accommodate the circumstances each family finds itself in and every family is unique.
Everyone is placed by the breakdown of the family unit under tremendous strain and there’s no replacement for an experienced family solicitor who can explain the problems and deal with them quickly, effectively and discretely.
The family law section of our site is meant as an introduction to our services and to the subject.
Legal Services We Offer in Tollcross
Wills & Will Writing
Where no Will was made, Civil Partners and spouses have specific statutory rights known as earlier rights. Enduring children -which comprises adopted kids but excludes stepchildren- are entitled to legal rights not or whether a Will is in place. It is not the case as their entitlement is subject to an upper limit, that married couples automatically get the entire estate of their deceased spouse or civil partner. Scots Law provides some help for unmarried couples where their partner dies without making a will, however, they do not have an automatic right and any award is right at the discretion of the courts within strict timescales.

Property prices are now rising again and therefore, is the size of a person’s estate. Person’s fiscal conditions can change radically over the years especially people that have business interests.
