Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™?  Can’t the attorney or my financial advisor do the same thing?

 

      A CDFA™ has been trained as a divorce specialist in the financial analysis
      and planning arena.  You need a CDFA™ who understands the tax law
      and other intricacies pertaining to the financial aspects of divorce.  An
      attorney is an expert on the legalities of a divorce.


What are the true benefits of using a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™?

 

      A CDFA™ can save you an enormous amount of time and legal fees by
      helping you avoid the long-term financial pitfalls related to divorce
      agreements.  Your CDFA™ can help you develop detailed household
      budgets to help avoid post-divorce financial struggles.  He or she will
      help you make informed decisions that are right for you and your family.

 

How will I know if I can make it on my own financially before I file for divorce?

 

      The best approach is to have a financial analysis that was completed by
      a CDFA™ who has specialized software and knowledge about how the
      tax laws may affect you.  He or she can run different scenarios and
      help you project your network and cash flow into the future.  This is
      the assistance you need to make informed decisions about your future.

 

What can I do now, if I think we are going to be separating?

Avail yourself of copies of all pertinent financial information.  Make copies of tax returns, paycheck stubs, real estate evaluations, information on your mortgage, copies of insurance policies - any and everything that has to do with your marital finances. You may seek the services of a CDFA™ before you separate. Many clients have benefited from pre-separation planning. When it actually occurred, they were well prepared.
My spouse won't come to the office with me, will you work with just one?
Yes, 

 

 I don't have an attorney -- do I need one if you help me?

        Yes, you will need an attorney. I'll be happy to recommend choices to you.

 

  How much is this financial advice going to cost me?

  The quick answer is "not nearly as much as it will cost you if you DON'T get financial   advice."
