The relationships that we have with our immediate and extended family members are precious, often providing a vital support network for us. However, it is not uncommon that these relationships can be put under considerable strain in certain situations. When this happens, it is important to know that specialist professional advisors are on hand to help you resolve any difficulties you are having.

At McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors, we have been involved in advising on all aspects of family law for many years. Our team of specialist family law solicitors are regularly sought out to provide impartial, practical legal assistance when families need help to resolve a situation. If you need to speak to someone about how the law will apply to your family, contact us today.

Do you need specialist advice from local advisors?

At McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors, we pride ourselves in offering legal services that are accessible to our clients. No matter where you are, whether in Dumfries or Irvine, if you want to have access to a local Ayrshire solicitor, at McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors we are able to help you.

What areas of family law do we specialise in?

At McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors, we believe it is important to be able to offer a service that meets the needs of our clients. We are able to offer advice across all areas of family law in Scotland, including:

Divorce Solicitors Kilmarnock, Irvine and Glasgow

Couples may argue from time-to-time. In most cases, it is hoped that disagreements can be resolved amicably. However, sometimes couples struggle to maintain their relationship, and may decide that it is best for all concerned if they go their separate ways. At McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors, we can help with the process of applying for a divorce, making matters as stress-free as possible for our clients.

Children and Child Residence & Contact Lawyers Ayr, Troon and Glasgow

Sometimes, particularly where parents separate, caregivers can struggle to agree on a child’s or children’s upbringing. Our child law specialists can help you come to an arrangement with other caregivers about where a child will live, and how contact with other important people in their lives will be maintained. If the courts are required to decide what is best for the child concerned, the team at McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors will use their vast skills and expertise to make sure your voice is heard.


The courts are not always the best place to resolve disputes concerning family members. As well as the potential for litigation to be costly and lengthy, the rigid procedures and formal adversarial setting of the courtroom may prevent families from finding a mutually acceptable resolution. At McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors, we understand that issues between family members need to be handled delicately, and can offer mediation services to help you resolve your difficulties outside the courtroom with the help of an objective, understanding mediator.

Adoption Lawyers Ayr, Troon, Kilmarnock, Irvine and Glasgow

Individuals may often wonder about adding to their family. Increasingly, people are considering the avenue of adoption, but few understand precisely what is involved. The adoption solicitors at McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors are regularly sought out to assist in navigating what can be a very long process. We will be able to provide support in completing the paperwork, and in liaising with the relevant authorities that will deal with your application to adopt a child.

Prenuptial agreements

Individuals that agree to marry one another often do so after having spent a significant amount of time together. However, they may be wary of entering into the institution of marriage for fear of what could happen if they ever decide to end their relationship: they may be worried about the potential for disagreements about how they are to divide up their property, or how their children are to be cared for. At McLennan Adam Davis Solicitors, we can assist you to set down how your affairs are to be handled if you and your future spouse ever decide to terminate your relationship.

We also do not complicate matters with ‘add on’ services or gimmicks.
