New Year, New Start
As you will often hear New Year is a time when we all consider things we may do differently or change in our lives. So why is that?
Many people view New Year as a time for a fresh start. We are often consulted after New Year by clients looking to change their relationship status.
You may assume I am referring to separation, and we do tend to notice an upsurge in requests for advice about separation and divorce in January; however many people also become engaged at Christmas and just like Harry and Meghan they are planning their wedding. Some decide to cohabit for the first time and are planning where they are going to live. Others might decide to start a family, whether that’s in the conventional way or by looking into adoption or surrogacy.
No matter if you are contemplating ending your relationship or are just starting the plans for it, you are about to embark on some of the most significant financial decisions you may make in your lifetime. You need the right advice.
Emotions may play a huge factor in how you will approach matters. If you have just become engaged or moved in together you will be hoping that the future is rosy. If you are thinking of ending your relationship you may be feeling jaded and sad. You may also be worried about getting expert family law advice.

At Family Law Matters Scotland LLP we pride ourselves on being approachable and looking at all of the options to achieve tailored solutions.
