What can be done if another person has the evidence I require?

CC-What-can-be-done-if-another-person-has-the-evidence-I-require

What exactly is proof, and why is it so important?

Evidence for a court action takes a variety of forms. It can be physical evidence (something tangible and tactile), documentary evidence (a written statement or material such as discs, tapes, videos, and photographs), or oral evidence (the testimony of a witness). The gathering of evidence as part of your argument is critical. You must be able to prove the facts on which your case is based if you wish to win. Evidence is presented at various phases of the judicial proceeding. When the claim or defences are filed, some evidence will be produced. There will also be deadlines for submitting evidence prior to the start of a trial.

How shift workers can coordinate child contact agreements?

CC-How-shift-workers-can-coordinate-child-contact-agreements

When the court makes a decision about child contact, the best interests of the child(ren) take precedence. However, it is vital to highlight that there is no standardised strategy to contact arrangements. Each child and family is unique, and when developing a contact agreement, parents can be creative and flexible in terms of how contact is created and maintained. The essential topics to consider when dealing with shift work as a separated parent are communication, consistency, and flexibility. It is up to each family to think about strategies to support and preserve contact that works for them while keeping the child's interests and well-being in mind.

There is no sign of a reduction in the number of Scottish corporate insolvencies

CC-There-is-no-significant-reduction-in-the-number-of-Scottish-corporate-insolvencies

Back in March, the Accountant in Bankruptcy ("AiB") has published its corporate insolvency data for the fourth quarter of the fiscal year 2021-22, which runs from January to March 2022. The AiB monitors liquidations and receiverships, and their data reveal that the number of companies entering liquidation has nearly doubled during the same quarter in 2020-21, with 240 entities entering liquidation compared to 91 the previous year. It is worth noting that, in the past, most corporate insolvencies were forced liquidations, whereas since the first quarter of 2020-21, the majority have been creditors' voluntary liquidations, implying that company directors are deciding to wind up based on the company's inability to pay its debts, rather than creditor pressure.

What should I do if my opponent has no money but I have a strong case?

CC-What-should-I-do-if-my-opponent-has-no-money-but-I-have-a-strong-case

When considering litigation, one of the first things we consider is your opponent's financial sustainability.

Managing common areas in a housing development

CC-Managing-common-areas-in-a-housing-development

A developer's goals in managing the common components of a development include:

  1. Maintaining the amenities and services within a development to make sure it provides a high-quality living environment.
  2. Make sure the management structure gives the developer a way out so they can transfer management to a trustworthy successor and transfer all liability for common elements once the development is finished.
  3. A transparent, fair, and equitable management system that minimises disagreements regarding the fees assessed to plot owners for the upkeep of the common areas It is common for residents to dispute their bills and try to get out of paying for amenities they may feel they don't use. 

The management of the common elements may be covered in the title deeds in a number of ways. Depending on the specifics of the development, such as its size, location, and nature, it is important to determine which method is the best course of action.
