Scottish Law

MY husband divorced me on grounds of my unreasonable behaviour. I did not contest it as I still loved him and wanted to avoid a fuss. We agreed verbally that he would buy me out of the house or I would buy him out but it has not proceeded. He lives in the house and I in effect have nothing.

...

Austin is looking forward to the Great Scottish Run in October, a half marathon taking in Glasgow's most famous sights. There's just the small matter of seven weeks of training and crossing the Kingston Bridge on foot to surmount...

...

This week, Austin is prompted by some kitchen-sink fatalism to write on matters of age. He still feels young at heart though, as he prepares for yet more long-distance races.

...

I left my car in a car park and returned to find it scratched. A man gave me the registration details of the vehicle that caused the scratch. Can I get the driver's details from the DVLA?

...

Earlier this week, Glasgow Caledonian University hosted an independence referendum debate, with Cabinet Secretary for Justice Kenny MacAskill and Advocate General Lord Wallace.

...

190 lawyers and other interested parties gathered at Glasgow Caledonian University last night, for a debate on the Independence Referendum

How can I stop my ex using my address? My ex-partner applied for a store card using my address, as I received it through the post.

...

I am being bullied by neighbours when I'm at home alone.  They are making up stories about me, then phoning the police who are quite willing to believe them and charge me. I have no witnesses to verify this. How can I make it stop, apart from moving. How can I make the police believe that my neighbours are wasting their time?

...

Austin visits Chicago and finds a city which caters perfectly for those of a sporty disposition.

...

Our car broke down and the garage picked it up.

I live with my partner who bought the flat before I was with her. I am wondering if I can be put out of the house if she dies. She does not have a will, is legally still married but her ex left her (i.e this was the marital home) before I came to stay. Does he - the ex - have a claim on anything?

...

We ended the marriage because of her adultery. I have a separation document which states that she is responsible for all divorce costs and the action of divorce will be raised after a reasonable time. Neither of us would be entitled to legal aid and she says she cannot afford the £700.

...

The Scottish Government has outlined its plan for implementing the Children and Young (Scotland) People Act 2014.

It's my favourite month, and not just because my birthday is in it (passed, so don't worry about a card!).

...

This week, Austin finds that a dose of good old-fashioned gardening is just as beneficial as pounding the pavements.

...

I LIVE in a block of six owner-occupied flats. The owners of four of the six want to appoint a factor to deal with grass cutting, repairs, stair cleaning, etc. I don't want this. Can I refuse to get involved?

...

I bought a car 18 months ago on a finance deal which should last for five years but I'm finding it a bit difficult with the payments though I haven't missed any of them.

...

TWO years ago my wife walked out, leaving me with all the outstanding bills, mortgage, credit cards etc .
