We are still open throughout the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. 

Family law is still a vital aspect of many of our lives, and the courts will still handle urgent business. The Courts have stated that that urgent business includes: 

  • New applications for child protection orders
  • Interim interdicts
  • child referral appeals
  • urgent adoptions
  • urgent interim residence or contact applications 
  • and urgent applications in relation to Adults with Incapacity.

This means many cases can still proceed through court including urgent disputes regarding the living arrangements of children, social work cases and more. 

Many cases can be progressed as normal outside of court.  In particular, separation and divorce matters can often be finalised without any court intervention whatsoever.

Since our founding we have operated a paperless way of working.  We are able to progress the cases of new and existing clients remotely during these unprecedented times.  We can receive documents via email, WhatsApp and more.  We can offer appointments by telephone, FaceTime, Skype, WhatsApp or Zoom. 

Please contact our office on 0141 404 6575  to arrange an appointment to discuss the best approach for your case.

 

Contract Disputes Solicitors, Glasgow

Contract disputes can arise in many, many forms. Frequently, it is our experience that contract disputes can arise within a family environment concerning perhaps borrowing money or by some other business transaction.

Contract disputes can also arise in a commercial context in any number of ways. It is important to consider what steps can be taken at the formation of a contract in order to protect your position. For example, contractual agreements can be entered into in writing with certain provisions made to safeguard parties’ interests.

It is also important to understand that most forms of legal obligations can be bound by verbal contracts without the need for anything to be recorded in writing. When there is a potential breach of contract, it is important to understand remedies which exist including taking certain steps to protect or freeze assets on the dependence of certain actions. This is more informally known as diligence.

It is also important to understand how matters can be taken forward to litigation in order that court orders can be obtained to enable a future demand of payment or indeed that the opponent is ordered by the Court to implement certain obligations arising out of a contract.
