Talk to a mediator and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst today.
Divorce Financial Analysis Massachusetts
Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®)
Financial issues are the most frequent source of anxiety and conflict in divorce. My job is to take the mystery and fear out of the numbers.
I can work with two parties in mediation, through individual consultation, or on behalf of an attorney or other mediators. As a skilled Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®), I identify pertinent financial issues, lay out the options, and empower clients toward firm decisions.
Financial Reality Check
Creating two households would also require separate costs. I help clients compile data about their income and living expenses in a format that clarifies financial strengths and weaknesses.
Parties should explore all options for splitting their assets. I help clients by analyzing options for dividing different kinds of assets and identifying the trade-offs, including liquidity, diversification, potential growth, and tax implications.
Supporting the Negotiation Process
I evaluate alternative strategies so clients can make decisions based on what is most important. A client may need a comprehensive analysis or want to focus on a specific issue. No two cases are exactly the same, so I never take a cookie-cutter approach.
Typical Questions I Help Clients Address
Are we living above our means?
How can we afford two households?
Does it make sense for the kids and me to stay in the house and can I afford it?
Can I afford to pay that much support?
Can I live on that little support?
Will I be okay in the short term and the long term?
What happens to our retirement accounts?
How do we deal with pensions?
Do we have enough liquidity to divide our assets in a way that makes sense?
What about credit card debt and student loans?
What is the best way to claim children on our tax returns?
