So our advice is always personal, practical and tailored for you. Whether it’s divorce, a dispute with your cohabitant, or securing contact with your children, our team will work with you to map out a plan for the future. We listen to your priorities and concerns. We clarify your issues and explore your options. And we find the approach that fits.
When things take a turn for the worst, having someone to rely on can make all the difference. From the moment you instruct one of our family law solicitors, we will provide you with a clear, jargon-free understanding of your unique legal position and an estimate of the time and costs involved. That way, you’re in a better place to decide what’s right for you.
We recognise that each family is different and has its own special circumstances, which is why we will always take the time to listen to your situation in full. This helps us to be able to provide tailored advice on how best to protect your interests. Whatever the issue – divorce, a dispute with your cohabitant, financial issues arising from your cohabitation or separation, securing contact with your children or grandchildren. Recognised for our commitment to client care, we will always work proactively to move your case forward, bringing things to a satisfying conclusion in a timely manner.
Our aim is to enable you to move from a painful present to a stable future with minimal fuss, and if possible, we will attempt to achieve this through Alternative Dispute Resolution to save you the costs of court. We can negotiate a settlement for you, refer you to mediation or sit around the table with you, your partner and their lawyer in the Collaborative law process.
In other cases, where agreement at an early stage is not possible and detailed knowledge of the law, legal procedure and local practice is essential, our lawyers can help you and your family.
Our lawyers have several specialist Family Law accreditations; we are on the Law Society's Panel of Family Law Specialist Lawyers and hold a The Law Society Specialist Accreditation in Children Law, we are members of Resolution (Resolution is a community of family justice professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues constructively)and have trained collaborative lawyers. Our Family Law team has also been listed in the Legal 500 (the largest and most in depth independent survey of UK law firms).

Whether to divorce or separate is a huge decision. It is not something anyone rushes into or part of anyone’s life plan. In order to help you work out what you want, and the next steps, Neves’ Family Law Solicitors offer a fixed fee meeting.
This guidance has been put together to give prospective clients an idea about what to expect during the initial consultation appointment and the type of information we will ask for. It has been modelled on an appointment for a client who is considering or going through a divorce, but the general principles apply to all appointments.
Any divorce has a huge emotional impact on the individuals involved, but for high net worth individuals it can also raise complex legal, financial and commercial issues.
I contacted Heidi Fleming from Neves solicitors regarding an important family matter. Heidi promptly responded and organized a meeting so that I was able to receive the advice I needed before I had to make important decisions. I was so impressed with Heidi’s empathy for my situation as well as the clear guidance that she gave me. I highly recommend Heidi.
