Divorce Financial Planning
Divorce can be very complex and represents one of the biggest financial turning points some individuals will ever face. Emotions run high and once the divorce is finalized, some decisions are irrevocable.
Team member Patty Estopinal has completed study through the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts to obtain the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) designation. CDFA professionals help clients determine the short-term and long-term financial impact of any proposed divorce settlement. They also provide valuable information on financial issues that are related to the divorce, such as tax consequences, dividing pension plans, continued health care coverage, stock option elections and much more. CDFA professionals also help attorneys by helping the client make financial sense of proposals. CDFA professionals give lawyers the tools they need to help prove their case.
