About OTS Solicitors 

At OTS Solicitors, we know how hard it can be to acknowledge that a relationship or marriage has broken down and that you need help. When you speak to divorce and financial settlement solicitor, Behzad Sharmin, she will put you at your ease with friendly professional divorce and financial settlement advice.


Behzad Sharmin and our team of caring and committed divorce and family law specialists at OTS Solicitors have some simple goals; to understand what you want to achieve in your financial settlement, gather and assess the financial information, provide bespoke financial settlement advice, guide you through your financial settlement options and secure a binding financial court order.


Behzad Sharmin will help you navigate through the financial settlement process and help with:

  • Negotiating a financial settlement after a separation or divorce and, if appropriate, either preparing a formal document called a separation agreement or a financial court order and submitting it to court for approval;

  • Advising you on what financial paperwork you and your ex-partner will need to provide during negotiations, in mediation sessions or as part of the financial settlement court process, and explaining what additional financial disclosure or valuations may be called for;

  • Representation in cohabitee property claim cases and schedule one claims;

  • Representation in divorce financial court proceedings for claims for spousal maintenance, property orders, cash or lump sum orders, orders relating to businesses or pension or trust assets;

  • Representing intervenors in financial settlement court proceedings who are claiming an interest in a family asset, for example the parent of a husband or wife could allege that a house deposit provided by them was a loan and not a gift;

  • Advising on applying back to court to vary an existing financial court order to seek a reduction or increase in spousal maintenance payments or the capitalisation or termination of a spousal maintenance order;

  • Providing legal support before and after your financial mediation sessions and converting your memorandum of understanding into a binding financial court order;

  • Applying to court to enforce a financial court order if the court order has not been complied with.  


Why choose OTS Solicitors for your financial settlement

OTS Solicitors think that divorce and financial settlement clients need and deserve a family law financial settlement solicitor who:

  • Will listen to what you want; if you do not want to go to court or to get a formal valuation of a property or you want to pursue financial disclosure, we will listen to you;

  • Understand the need to carefully review a former partner’s financial disclosure paperwork to look for hidden assets, bank accounts, foreign property or wealth;

  • Will take the time to explain the financial settlement options including divorce court orders such as pension sharing orders, lifetime spousal maintenance, capitalisation of spousal maintenance payments and global spousal maintenance orders as well as the complicated rules on financial disclosure within financial court proceedings;

  • Will not tell you what you must do but will explain your financial settlement options. It is rare for there to be just one option on how to divide property on separation, and pensions and other assets on divorce. We will explain the pros and cons of your various options and help you make the right decision for you and your family;

  • Clearly explain the legal costs involved in negotiating a financial settlement or applying to court for a financial court order;

  • Will make sure that you get all the help you need; for example help in finding the right forensic accountant, financial advisor, pension actuary, barrister or surveyor to help you sort out a fair distribution of your family wealth;

  • Will help you prepare a new Will to reflect the change in your family circumstances after your divorce and financial settlement.
