Edinburgh family solicitors


Edinburgh family solicitors offer their clients a range of legal services. Most commonly, when Edinburgh family solicitors are called for, the issues relate to divorce. There are many complications with divorce proceedings, especially when children are involved. There are often difficult decisions to be made regarding residence, asset-management and visitation rights, especially when one of the partners moves to a different geographical location.

Not all of the cases Edinburgh family solicitors deal with are related to divorce. Some of the most difficult cases involving children arise from an unfit parent. A recent Edinburgh case involving a drug-dependent mother made headlines for a different reason. Two children, who were cared for by their grandparents after the mother was seen to be unfit, found themselves in the middle of a gay rights dispute as a court allowed two gay men to adopt them, against the wishes of the grandparents. The grandparents were seen as unsuitable carers because of health problems and agreed for the two children to be adopted, but specified that they wished for a heterosexual couple to care for them. When the courts allowed a gay couple to adopt them instead the media, and especially conservative organisations, publicised the story.

The law is incredibly complex, and there can be unforeseen twists at any point. If you live Edinburgh, family solicitors can help you deal with legal issues stemming from divorce, visitation rights or other family law related disputes. A legal professional’s advice is extremely valuable in emotionally charged cases, where one might become too emotional to develop and communicate logical arguments.
