When money issues create a heightened stress and conflict in divorce, individuals and couples increasingly seek healthier ways to navigate the process. As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA ® ), I help clients and attorneys explore the short- and long-term real costs of divorce, to develop a realistic view of a financial situation post-divorce. I help clients understand personal vs. marital property, property valuation, options for dividing retirement plans and pensions, and how to navigate spousal and child support. I can also serve as a financial neutral for couples who are cooperative. As a financial advisor and divorce analysis professional, I offer the guidance, knowledge and tools to help empower divorcing couples make better-informed financial decisions to prepare for financial independence.
