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.


Small Claims (Simple Procedure) Solicitors, Glasgow

In Scotland, actions that have a value of under £5,000 tend to be raised as small claims court actions. There are some exceptions to this however but the general rule is that where actions are for values of £5,000 or less, they must be raised in a small claims court.

There are some rather unusual provisions which affect small claims court hearings. Firstly, it is important to understand that any award of expenses is restricted, even if you are successful in the action. In certain circumstances, it could even prove to be uneconomic to raise a small claims court action depending upon the facts and circumstances of each case.

It is also extremely important to understand whether there are other attractive remedies rather than raising a small claims court action.

Civil Legal Aid is not available for small claims court actions. If however, you wish to proceed with litigation in the small claims court, we are more than happy to be of assistance either in an advisory capacity or in representing you at Court.

"Very positive experience from start to finish. I found Michael to be a very calming influence during a difficult period in my life. I was instantly put at ease and I had 100% confidence in Michael. From the outset, his knowledge and experience reassures you that you are in safe hands. Communication throughout the process was excellent, very clear and I had regular updates on the progress of my case. I couldn't be happier, I was delighted with the outcome and I would highly recommend Michael and Thompson Family Law."
