It is definitely advantageous to hire a CDFA first.
A CDFA professional such as Becky not only educates her clients regarding various financial considerations, but she can also assist them in designing a process to facilitate termination of their marriages beyond the traditional litigation-oriented model (e.g., Mediation, Collaborative).
She introduced compassionate sensibility and clarity to a difficult procedure and often demonstrated an ability to assess the dynamics of a situation and steer it in a more positive direction.
Becky's experience as a financial specialist was invaluable: reduced conflict, expedited solutions, lowered stress environment, gave me more confidence and control.
Financial analysis conducted early in the divorce process can save time. The average length of the U.S. divorce process is one year. A CDFA can explain and analyze finance-related aspects to empower her clients to make educated decisions quicker and/or within their own Alternative Dispute Resolution timeline.
A CDFA can help her clients save money during the divorce process. A legal settlement offer that floats back and forth between attorneys - without one or both spouses clearly understanding all potential financial ramifications - can be detrimental, time-consuming, and expensive. A CDFA educates and empowers her clients regarding often-complicated financial decisions.
A CDFA can help her clients avoid long-term financial pitfalls related to divorce agreements. A CDFA can forecast the long-term effects of a potential divorce settlement. Financial decisions should be based not only on present-day needs, but on retirement needs as well.
A CDFA can help her clients develop detailed household budgets to prevent post-divorce cash flow crises. A CDFA can help clients transition from budgeting based on one joint household to individual households by developing a realistic monthly budget, taking into account predicted future income and expenses.
A CDFA can reduce apprehension and misunderstanding about the divorce process. No matter the financial and emotional dynamics between spouses, divorce represents change and uncertainty for all involved. A CDFA is trained to empower her clients to maximize their confidence in their lives as financially-independent persons.
