A Wealth of Measures

(p.127) Commentary No 24: April 2005
Professor Norrie's Commentaries on Family Law

Kenneth McK Norrie

Edinburgh University Press

Discusses the variety of measures contained in what became the Family Law (Scotland) Act 2006, including amendments to the Matrimonial Homes (Family Protection) (Scotland) Act 1981; the restructuring of the grounds of divorce in the Divorce (Scotland) Act 1976; and the final abolition of the concept of illegitimacy by bringing the unmarried father into full family recognition. Far and away the most important provisions in the Act are those conferring a right to claim financial adjustment between the parties at the end of a cohabiting relationship (whether it ends by death or separation).

Keywords:   Family Law (Scotland) Bill 2005, Occupancy rights for cohabitants, Matrimonial interdicts, Separation periods for divorce, Wallis v Wallis, Unmarried fathers, Cohabitants and financial claims, Same-sex couples
