Advantages to using a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst
The use of a CDFA™ may even decrease the total cost of your divorce by reducing the amount of time and expense of different proposed legal settlements going between attorneys. A CDFA™ is responsible for:
• Identifying the short-term and long-term effects of dividing property.
• Integrating tax issues.
• Analyzing pension and retirement plan issues.
• Determining if the client can afford the matrimonial home – and if not, what might be an affordable alternative.
• Evaluating the client’s insurance needs.
• Establishing assumptions for projecting inflation and rates of return.
• Bringing an innovative and creative approach to settling cases.
When dividing marital assets, not all assets are treated equal. Which “half” you receive can have very different after-tax effects; do you know which “half” is better?
Why is a CDFA important to you?
Who better to carry out a divorce financial plan than someone who is both a CPA and a CDFA™? You get two experts for the price of one. The unique combination of these two disciplines offers a specialized knowledge that can be leveraged into the most advantageous divorce settlement. Access to a qualified CPA provides you with:
- Preparation of tax returns and tax planning

- Knowledge of various accounting systems
- Financial statement preparation
- Strong financial statement analytical skills
- Ability to compare company books and records to tax returns filed with the government
- An understanding of fraud and detection procedures including the uncovering of unreported income, embellished expenses, understated assets or overstated liabilities
