Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. He has no claim unless he has contributed to the family over the years. The reason for that is that an unmarried partner only has 2 remedies under Scots law. One is for unjust enrichment where he has contributed and it would be unfair for you to benefit from his contribution. The second is a statutory claim for recompense for contributions in your interests or that of any child. From your narrative you have a partner who has contributed nothing and therefore would be due nothing. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
