Ask a Scots Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My name is ***** ***** I specialise in family law. I’m happy to assist you today and I appreciate that is is important that you find a resolution as soon as possible.
Please note that our discussions on this site are for general information purposes and do not create an lawyer-client relationship. It is always recommended that you consult with a local solicitor for specific legal information.
I'll do my best to resolve this for you, please give me time to review your question and I will revert back to you shortly.
Ah - I note you are in Scotland. In that case I'll have to opt out for a Scots law colleague to assist you.
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me have a quick look at your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best possible answer.
Unless you have any specific question for me I think you have answered the main issue for yourself: if you are not happy with your solicitor get a new one and always take a friend's recommendation seriously. Be aware that solicitors charge for non legal aid divorce work on a time basis, usually at a rate which can range between £180 and £250 per hour plus VAT and outlays.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
