Family Law

Principal contacts: Charles T. Cant -; Graham Reid -

We provide a responsive, helpful and sensitive family law service when advising on this emotive and increasingly complex area. Our lawyers advise all manner of clients including high net worth individuals based in Kirkcaldy, Fife and elsewhere in Scotland.

Whilst the vast majority of family law and child welfare cases are settled out of court, where this is not possible, we have considerable experience in pursuing and defending in both the Court of Session and Sheriff Court. You can be confident that we will pursue or defend your case as forcefully as is considered necessary.

The following are examples of matters with which we deal:

  • separation and divorce
  • civil partnerships
  • advising on prenuptial and postnuptial agreements
  • residence and contact disputes
  • disputes involving children
  • children's hearing and permanence applications
  • child maintenance
  • cohabitation
  • financial provision
  • adults with incapacity (guardianship and intervention orders)

You may also be entitled to Legal Aid depending on your facts and circumstances. For more information about Legal Aid, the Scottish Legal Aid Board's website can be found via the following link:
