Helping you through a difficult time

Divorce Law in Scotland

If you want to apply for a divorce in Scotland, you must either prove that one of you is applying for a gender recognition certificate or that there has been an irretrievable breakdown of your marriage.

There are four ways in which you can prove there has been an irretrievable breakdown of your marriage, these are: 

  1. Your spouse has behaved in a way that has made it extremely difficult for you to live with them, and you cannot reasonably be expected to do so any longer. This is known as unreasonable behaviour, and can cover a multitude of actions such as physical or emotional abuse, as well as drug, alcohol, or gambling problems. 

  2. Your spouse has committed adultery. 

  3. You have been separated from your spouse for at least one year, and they have agreed to the divorce. 

  4. You have been separated from your spouse for two years. In this instance, you can apply for a divorce regardless of their approval. 

If you are the person applying for the divorce, then you are known as the pursuer. If your (ex) partner applied for a divorce against you then you are known as the defender. 

Divorce proceedings can become very complex when the defender does not agree to the divorce, or does not agree to the terms. These proceedings can become even more complicated if there are children under 16 involved, or you have property and assets in joint names.

Reaching a financial settlement is always a matter of considerable concern to anybody involved in divorce proceedings – as are custody agreements. Our Glasgow-based divorce lawyers have vast experience in negotiating satisfactory settlements for our clients.

Family Law

Family issues can have a huge impact on both yours and your family’s lives, so it’s understandable that you will want to know the consequences of any decisions you are considering. Whether you are married or in a civil partnership, we can deal in every aspect of family law.

Family Mediation

Family mediation is an alternative method for resolving issues between couples who are divorcing or separating. Family mediation aims to improve communication between both parties and resolve conflict and disagreements on future arrangements.

Parental Rights

In Scotland, parents are entitled to certain rights over their children, but they also have responsibilities they must uphold, too. Parental rights and responsibilities can be inherited, in light of the fact you are the child’s biological parents, or they may be granted to you through Court appointment.

Prenuptial Agreements

A prenuptial agreement is a written contract that is signed by both parties which allows the couple to agree what happens to their finances and assets if they separate, divorce or die. They outline what will happen to certain assets in order to stop them from becoming matrimonial property.

Postnuptial Agreements

A postnuptial agreement is useful as it allows couples to protect their assets in the event of a separation. It ensures that plans are made for how your property will be divided between the two of you. If a postnuptial agreement is not made, there is nothing to protect these assets from becoming matrimonial property.
