When a relationship breaks down, often the issues of greatest conflict between a separating couple can be relating to the care of any children eg where they will live, holiday arrangements and of course, financial arrangements. We can help you with providing advice in connection with contact*, residence*, adoption, cases going through the Childen’s Hearing system, parental rights and responsibilities and other related matters.
*Contact and Residence
These are the terms used under Scots law which may be more commonly known as Access (Contact) and Custody (Residence).
If you have split from your partner and have been able to agree arrangements for any children you have then you may want to put that in writing and we can assist you with drawing up an Agreement. If however there is a dispute between you and your partner then we recommend that you consult with us so we can advise you of your rights and options. Most disputes can be resolved by negotiation, however, if this is not possible then the matter may require to be decided by the Court.
We have a broad experience in dealing with all types of contact and residence issues, both in Scotland and disputes that reach across the border and can offer sympathetic and understanding advice.

Alison, I am writing to thank you and your team for completing all matters in connection with my late father’s estate.

I should have sent an email earlier to thank you for all your work to make sure the settlement went through for the house (at both ends!) – we never met you in person but we both thought you were super efficient and we’re very grateful for your painstaking work on making sure that everything went through – as well as answering our emails quickly and reassuring us that all was well. It really is a great service that you provide.
