Due to the dreaded 'B' word (Brexit), your Solicitors in Preston have seen a rise in the number of people who are applying for an Irish Passport.  
 
But, as part of the process of applying, you have to have your identity certified by a professional, such as MG Legal. But what is certifying a document, and how much does it cost? 
Knowing how often you will get to see your child following a divorce or separation can be hard, especially if you don't always get on with your former partner, however MG Legal's teamare here to provide you with advice on how your visiting time should be split. 
In our previous blog post, which can be found here, we have discussed the changes happening to the Probate Service, including the move to an online system. 
 
As part of these changes, the traditional ‘Oath’ has been changed to a Statement of Truth. Paul Downer, in his blog post for HMCTS, has explained that a number of ‘pain points’ were identified as part of the research, one of which being that users were unsure of the term ‘swearing of the oath’, adding to their, usually already high, stress levels. 
It can seem like an obvious question, but when you’re moving home it can be hard to remember everything that you need to do. So, our expert team of Solicitors in Preston, have put together a list of common things that people forget, but really should remember! 
Mother’s Day is upon us, and in the face of this, our team are here to de-bunk a common myth surrounding Mothers, and the rights they have. 
 
Mother’s Day is well known for being a day of celebrating our loved ones, usually the mothers, grandmas, and even their mothers. We buy gifts (which hopefully aren’t eaten before the big day!), and we spend some quality time with our family. However, on such a day, not all mothers are with their children. 
So, as a reminder, an Easement is a right over a property which benefits another property (you can read more about them here) and an easement may be granted to continue indefinitely, or for a fixed period of time. Whereas a lease is a contract by which one party conveys land, property services, etc. to another person for a specified period of time, usually in return for payment (you can read more about them here). To confuse matters a little more there is also such a thing called a lease of easements. A lease of easements occurs when someone has a lease of land which they then adapt to grant a lease of rights, but interpreting such a document can create difficulty because sometimes it is not clear whether a lease of easements is granting a lease or creating an easement for a set number of years. 
So, you’ve managed to get on the property ladder after years and years of skimping and saving. You moved into your new house and it’s perfect… or so you think. Maybe the things you thought you could live with just become unliveable. Don’t worry. We’ve all been there! 
 
And you’re not alone. MG Legal, Solicitors in Lancaster and Preston, are here to tell you the common reasons for people moving house – and …

MG Legal, were surprised to read that Senior lawyers are urging members of the judiciary to learn how to interpret emojis. Whilst your local divorce solicitors know that many of you understand that emoji’s are the little symbols commonly used when texting which depict smiling faces, animals, food and the weather, to a typical high court Judge the use of such symbols can be somewhat confusing. 
Following on from our previous blog on the circumstances during which you should re-visit your Will, which you can read here, MG Legal’s local solicitors for Wills are here to present you with some shocking statistics. 
You may have read our previous blog (which you can find here) on legal aid cuts, and the effects on law firms such as your Solicitors in Lancaster, MG Legal. Well now there is a further development: The Ministry of Justice has published a plan, which outlines action needed to support the legal industry, and members of the public accessing legal services. 
 
Currently in family law, legal aid is only available for cases where domestic abuse has been a factor, whether that is to do with child contact or divorce proceedings. Now, the MoJ is proposing to expand legal aid coverage to include Special Guardianship Orders (by Autumn 2019) and cases to do with separated migrant children (by Spring 2019).
