Why You Need a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst on Your Side

The financial impact of a divorce can be incredibly complex, particularly when a marriage has lasted a long time or if it involves significant assets or a closely-held business. To protect your interests, you deserve the knowledge and insight that only a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst can provide.

At Batley Family Law, we have one of only two Certified Divorce Financial Analysts in the state of New Mexico on staff to meet your needs at all stages of the divorce process. Our team provides comprehensive assistance to find the right solutions for your future, regardless of your situation.

What is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst?

A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst or CDFA professional is a financial expert trained specifically to help divorcing spouses and their attorneys to understand how the financial decisions made during the divorce process will impact the spouses’ finances in the future. The training distinguishes these analysts from other professionals such as Certified Financial Planners, Chartered Financial Consultants, Certified General Accountants, and Chartered Accountants.

How a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst Helps in the Divorce Process

A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) provides critical financial expertise during the divorce process, focusing on the comprehensive analysis of the financial issues associated with divorce. The involvement of a CDFA helps ensure that financial decisions are made with a clear understanding of their short-term and long-term impacts. Here are key ways a CDFA contributes to the divorce process:

  • Financial Analysis and Planning
  • Marital Property Division
  • Child and Spousal Support
  • Post-Divorce Financial Stability
  • Settlement Negotiations
  • Legal and Mediation Support

Batley Family Law Provides CDFA Services to Meet the Full Range of Your Needs

You may be overwhelmed with questions during the divorce process. Guidance from a CDFA can provide answers to many of those questions to help you move toward the future you want. But finding a qualified CDFA can be a challenge.

At Batley Family Law, our divorce team includes CDFA Lorrie Kehl-Paul, who is one of only two professionals in New Mexico with this critical certification. She can help you develop plans for your financial future after divorce, as well as assisting with navigating tax issues, developing a beneficial plan for property division, determining what will happen with the family home, and managing financial issues associated with education, medical care, and other challenging necessities.
