Assistance for Divorcing Individuals

Since divorce involves many financial issues, it makes sense to have a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA™) as part of your team. By providing expertise relating to the financial details of your divorce, we can tailor our services to help you obtain a more in-depth understanding of your financial options.

Services include (but are not limited to):
  • Education regarding financial matters relating to the divorce
  • Work with you (and your attorney or mediator) to draw up budgets that demonstrate your income and expenses, along with appropriate levels of support
  • Creation of personalized reports and graphs that illustrate various property division scenarios, cash flow projections, support amounts, etc.
  • Help address specific challenges, such as division of complex assets, loss of health, life or disability coverage, division of retirement plan benefits, etc.
  • Help with determining the short and long-term financial impact of proposed settlements
You will benefit by:
  • Having a clearer understanding of the financial considerations, so that you can make informed, educated decisions regarding issues such as:
    • Can I/Should I keep the house?
    • What are the pros and cons of exchanging certain assets (i.e., trading the pension for the retirement accounts)?
    • Will I be able to support myself when spousal and/or child support ends?
    • How should we handle the stock options, deferred compensation and other types of employer sponsored plans?
  • Having someone who can work with you through each step of the divorce process
  • Hearing an objective viewpoint in an emotional situation
  • Being better prepared to take charge of your financial future
