When people are injured, and it’s somebody else’s fault, then the first cause of action, other than seeking medical assistance, is to go and see your personal injury solicitors Preston. You see, being injured may just be the start of your problems.. imagine you’ve suffered an injury that affects the rest of your working life; or if you are injured, and can go back to work, it may be that you’re not in a position to do your previous job as well, or may be subject to disadvantage on the open labour market, if at any time you decide to leave your job, or are forced to do so in the increasingly volatile and changing world of employment. 
Not that long ago, our Lancaster Solicitors explained how the Government were now considering expanding the Civil Partnership Act to include any couple who wishes to enter into one (read our Lancaster Solicitors’ blog here). Our Lancaster Solicitors explained that this would benefit co-habiting couples who do not wish to marry, as they could enter into a Civil Partnership and gain the same rights as a married couple, for example, our Lancaster Solicitors explained, they would be entitled to certain benefits on the death of their partner that they would not usually be entitled to. 
At the end of June, our Lancaster solicitors team wrote about a Supreme Court Ruling relating to Civil Partnerships and Marriages, whereby a couple, Steinfeld and Keidan, wanted to enter into a Civil Partnership (read our blog, here). 
 
The final ruling made by the Justices was that the appellant’s rights under article 14 and article 8 of the European Convention of Human Rights was breached by the continuing legality of the Civil Partnership Act 2004 following the introduction of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013.

Recently, the Family Court could be argued to be making a conscious effort to move into the 21st Century. Whilst the prospect of an online divorce seems quite obvious to some, Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service has only just rolled the pilot scheme out to four solicitors' firms. Currently, Solicitors must complete the documentation either by hand or on the computer, and then sign the same (or ask their client to approve and sign the petition).  
 
The new system allows users to complete the petition online, through a series of tick boxes and free-text fields which have to be completed, and then share the petition electronically with their client. Once approved, the petition is submitted online, with a Marriage Certificate being sent as a PDF document, and payment to be made either by cheque (unfortunately, this still has to be posted) or through the Pay by Account (PBA) system in place.  
 
When you are looking at commencing divorce proceedings, there can be so much conflicting advice forced upon you. Unfortunately, as much as your friends, family, co-workers, etc want to help you, ultimately it may just cause you to be more confused than when you started! So, our Lancaster Solicitors have teamed up to explain what really happens during the divorce process, and what you need to do. 
 
When someone contacts us after their loved one has passed away, the first question we are normally asked is ‘What is Probate?’. It’s a term that is thrown around by all manners of people – Lancaster Solicitors, Funeral directors, Banks, Mortgage Companies – the list goes on and on. But, what is Probate and why do you need it? 
 
MG Legal’s Lancaster Solicitors are specialists in Probate matters, and have put together some answers to the top questions they are asked.
