Why Choose Divorce Financial Experts?
We’ll Tell You!

The decisions you make during your divorce will
affect the rest of your life.  Just as important to
know is that those same decisions are difficult,
if not impossible to change without additional
legal expense and court involvement.  But how do
you know whether your divorce settlement will
lead towards financial freedom or financial ruin
down the road? &nbps;In these tough economic
times, it’s crucial that you get the right
information so that you can make sound
financial – not emotional – decisions.

• What if child support doesn’t cover all of
your child’s expenses?
• Do you know how much of your spousal
support you’ll get to keep after taxes?
• What are the health care benefit options for
you and your children?
• Are you really getting the assets you need
for your unique circumstances?
• Are you sure you can afford to keep the
house?
• Do you understand the tax implications of
dividing retirement accounts?
• Do you know that there are a multitude of
settlement options that you may not have
considered?

Divorce Financial Experts will show you how to
avoid some of the most common financial
mistakes people make during the divorce
process – as well as show you the sources of
money that may be available to you as a result
of your divorce.

Top Five Reasons Why You Need Us.

1) Financial analysis conducted early in the
divorce process can save time.  The
average length of the U.S. divorce process
is one year.  In the beginning stages
of the process, both parties spend a great
deal of time trying to get a clear
understanding of the financial aspects and
terminology of the separation.  A
Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA)
professional can explain all financial
aspects of the pending decisions
and help to empower their client to make
educated decisions throughout the
proceedings.
2) A CDFA can help their client save money
during the divorce process.  By using
a CDFA professional, you can have a clearer
view of your financial future.  Only
then can you approach a legal settlement
that fully addresses your financial needs
and capabilities.  A legal settlement
that floats back and forth between attorneys,
without the client having a clear
understanding of all financial ramifications,
can be detrimental, time consuming and
expensive.  CDFA professional’s can
educate their clients by providing a thorough
knowledge and understanding of the often-
complicated financial decisions.
3) A CDFA can help his/her clients to avoid
long-term financial pitfalls related to
divorce agreements.  Working with a
client and their attorney, a CDFA professional
can forecast the long-term effects of the
divorce settlement.  This includes
details of all tax liabilities and benefits.
Developing a long-term forecast for their
financial situation is far better than a
short-term snapshot.  Financial decisions
must be made that not only take care of
immediate family needs, but retirement needs
as well.
4) CDFA professional’s can assist their clients
with developing detailed household budgets to
help avoid post-divorce financial struggles.
A CDFA professional can help clients think
through what the divorce will really cost in
the long run and develop a realistic monthly
budget during the financial analysis process.
Expenses such as life insurance, health
insurance and cost of living increases must
be taken into consideration when agreeing on
a final financial settlement.
5) Using a CDFA professional can reduce the
amount of apprehension and
misunderstanding about the divorce process.
Misinformation and misconceptions about the
divorce process can be detrimental.  Many
have false expectations that they will be
able to secure a divorce settlement allowing
them to continue with their accustomed style
of living.  Financial divorce analysis
helps to ensure a good, stable economic
future and prevent long-term regret with
financial decisions made during the divorce
process.
