What is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA™)?
A CDFA™ is a financial professional trained and certified to advise clients as to the complex financial issues of divorce by providing financial analysis. CDFAs can provide services to complement legal counsel in all kinds of divorce.
Why do I need a CDFA™?
No matter what kind of divorce you are pursuing, you will be required to deal with complex financial issues. Depending on the specifics of your case, these issues might include historical lifestyle and budget, tax consequences, pension plans, health care coverage, stock option elections and much more. Seeking the help of a CDFA™ can be your best strategy for cutting through the complexity to understand your options and secure your financial future.

Should a person hire a CDFA™ instead of an attorney?
Absolutely not! The services of a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA™) complement, but never replace, legal counsel. Even when seeking mediated divorce, it is still recommended that you seek the advice of an attorney.
Can a CDFA act as a divorce mediator?
Sometimes. Though not all CDFAs are trained as mediators, Financial Solutions for Divorce provides court-approved divorce mediation services in addition to financial analysis.
