Family relationships break down. Sometimes they can be repaired and rebuilt. However, sometimes they cannot and separation or divorce has to be considered. In Scotland, we have a system of family law which has a set of principles to ensure fair financial settlements for separating or divorcing couples.
Financial arrangements after separation do cause concern and anxiety. While married couples have a legal obligation to support each other, cohabiting couples do not. Financial support after separation and divorce also has to be considered.
Our specialist team of divorce lawyers can assist you by addressing your concerns on separation and divorce and finding the solutions that are best for you and your family. We frequently prepare agreements for couples to provide security and certainty.
However, if court action is necessary, and is the best option for you and in your interests, then our expert divorce lawyers will be able to support you.
