freelance solicitors

Those solicitors who have been working to make their clients happy have been given a clear warning by the regulators. A tough legal action will be taken for those freelance solicitors representing all the questionable companies. The Solicitors Regulation Authority put a warning and gave a reminder to petitioners reminding them to completely adhere to the obligations the institute set during litigation.

Some of the things which are done contrary to the obligation of Solicitors Regulation Authority by some of the petitioners, including solicitors in Skelmersdale, who are intending to make their clients happy are non-disclosure agreement, sexual abuse, harassment, and discrimination.

The organization has also told them that it is their duty to work with integrity and as per the rule of law. The chief executive officer of Solicitors Regulation Authority went forward and revealed that it is the responsibility of petitioners to ensure that clients are safeguarded and not stressed. They should ensure that they don’t misconduct their clients.

The petitioners who will be found going against the set obligation and abusive the litigation processes with evidence provided they will face the law. Currently, the solicitor regulation authority has been receiving about one thousand three hundred and fifty cases of solicitors working without integrity from January to September 2018.

43% of the cases reported were about the increased amount of money laundering, this is a very big increase as compared to the 2017 report. Fifty percent of the cases were about email modification fraud. This actually includes convincing transactions in the name of the big companies. This shows that criminals are trying to get wiser than the authority and they are yet to reach their goal of soliciting a large number of people.

The law clearly states that companies are responsible for controlling the domain name, this is supposed to happen when firms merge, change brand or close completely so as criminal should not register using the names of the companies which have closed down. Further, the Solicitors Regulation Authority has confirmed that the freelance solicitors who don’t follow regulations or who don’t work with the regulated firm, it will not be necessary for them to meet minimum levels of insurance coverage.

The Solicitor Regulation Authority has extended the period of the freelance solicitors who are willing to work with reserved legal services without authorization as the sole practitioner to three years. The SRA is then to allow freelance solicitors through their own name to hold a limited amount of money from clients with the consent of the client and also the client should be informed where and the purpose of holding the money.

The SRA also said that freelance solicitors should have indemnity cover and if they don’t have they should explain to their clients that they are covered by insurance. The Solicitor Regulation Authority has opened communication zones with freelance clients who would like to avail and report any complaints from freelance practitioners. In case of anything affecting payments of clients, the clients will be receiving compensation funds from their freelance practitioners. This is as per the new law set up by the solicitor regulation authority.

The SRA is really working to ensure that freelance solicitors neglecting the operation obligations are eliminated from the market this will ensure the safety of clients and reduce the art of taking advantage of client’s weaknesses and doing what is not right to them. This should come to a dead end.

Medical Negligence Solicitors

Following the acquisition of Roberts Jackson by AWH Solicitors, the Manchester-based legal firm has roped in two more services- Industrial Diseases and Medical Negligence. Till date, Roberts Jackson was counted among the leading specialists in Industrial Diseases in England.

Are the new visa rules in the UAE impacting ex-pat divorcees?

Divorce Family Law

Concerns about new visa rules that changed from 21 October 2018 and their impact on expatriate divorces residing in the UAE are coming up. It is estimated to be 7.5 million ex-pats live in UAE and divorce rates are considerably high in these communities. So, it makes sense to wonder if the new visa rules affect these divorcees.

Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship, UAE explains that the changes are aimed at giving women the opportunity to adjust their status, socially and economically after losing the head of the family – which can happen after a divorce. Solicitors in the UK dealing with family law may be required. The new visa rules that affect divorce in UAE are:

– As of 21 October 2018, divorcees in the Emirates are eligible for a one-year extension of a residency visa their own name from the date of divorce

– Children living in the UAE at the time of the divorce also become dependents on the mother’s visa (They will no longer be tied to the other parent’s sponsorship visa)

You might need divorce solicitor Manchester‌  specialists to explain this to you if you are in the North West region of England. There are UAE cases that have reached family law specialists in the UK where one spouse with the sponsorship Visa for work commonly controls the visa status of the whole family. It causes an imbalance of power to the holder of the sponsored visa for the expatriates in the UAE

Since such power over the residency and right for the spouse to remain in Emirates brings some of the most tragic and unjust areas in the practice of family lawyers, it would be natural to assume the new visa rules do have an impact on divorcees, including the divorced expatriates.

Spouses have suffered unfair financial negotiations when the other party use their strength of a sponsored visa as leverage in a divorce. In the UAE it is common for the husband to be the holder of the sponsored visa and if a divorce occurs, they would be forced to remain behind with their fathers and be separated from their mothers, should they leave UAE. The new rules, certainly change the situation. Children become dependents on their mothers who have a one-year of residency visa from the date of divorce.

For those with relatives or friends are in the UAE with concerns about divorce and the impacts a divorce would bring in the foreign country, refer them to the excellent divorce solicitor Manchester‌ experts for specialist family law guidance, covering divorce, children and financial issues as well as what the new UAE visa rules might mean for them.
