What is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®)?

A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®) is a skilled and highly-trained professional. Their goal is to help clients (and/or lawyers) navigate the financial aspects of a divorce. Many couples are eager to reach a property settlement quickly in order to dissolve their marriage without difficulty. However, there are many reasons why it is beneficial to work with a CDFA®.
