Following the success of our last two events, we are delighted to announce the date of our next Free Drop in Divorce Clinic – Wednesday 6th November.

When a relationship breaks down, you will often be faced with a number of very difficult financial and personal decisions, none of which are easy to make but will impact significantly upon your future. No matter your individual circumstances, early advice is essential to give you peace of mind, certainty about your rights and ensure that you are separating on fair terms.

WHEN IS DIVORCE AVAILABLE?

Under the Divorce (Scotland) Act 1976, divorce is available if a marriage has “broken down irretrievably”. Certain conditions have to be met in order for a divorce to be granted, The Court cannot decide that a marriage has broken down irretrievably unless the reasons for the divorce fall within the four grounds specified by the 1976 Act. These grounds are:- adultery, unreasonable behaviour, non-cohabitation for one year with the spouse’s consent or non-cohabitation for two years without consent The ground of adultery and unreasonable behaviour are less common. Most people will obtain a divorce on the grounds that they have separated and have not lived together for either one year or two years. Divorce on the grounds of unreasonable behaviour can be pled in special circumstances.

A New Pathway for Surrogacy


Recently there have been changes proposed to the law surrounding surrogacy jointly by the Scottish Law Commission and the Law Commission of England and Wales. It is hoped that these changes will bring the law up to date to the point where it better reflects modern views on surrogacy and the needs of all parties involved. These ideas have been warmly welcomed by the Advocates’ Family Law Association and are expected to reduce a lot of unnecessary worry when it comes to the process of having a baby through a surrogate.
