Attorneys, Mediators, Financial Analysts, Advisors, Insurance Professionals
A divorce mediator or attorney will advise you on specific aspects of divorce and how it is best to proceed. What does an attorney do that a mediator cannot - knowing the difference not only impacts how much you will pay but also the scope of work that can be performed.
Does your financial advisor know about your divorce and will there potentially be a conflict of interest. When was the last time he/she reviewed your portfolio? Does it need to be re-balanced because of a change in circumstances? Are you sure you will have saved enough to retire when you are ready or can you survive on your savings if you lose your job? Perhaps a new or additional insurance product like an additional life or long term care policy is needed or are looking to open a custodial account but aren't sure which is better for your circumstances.
Members of the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts specialize in the financial issues surrounding divorce. The role of the CDFA includes acting as an advisor to one's divorce lawyer, or as a mediator for both parties. A CDFA uses his or her knowledge of tax law, asset distribution, and short- and long-term financial planning to achieve an equitable settlement. Couple this discipline with a Forensic Accountant to ensure you know the whole picture and how it impacts you now and in the future.
