What is a CDFA®?

A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ (CDFA®) is one who specializes in the financial issues surrounding divorce. The role of a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ is to assist the client and their attorney about how the financial decision made today will impact the client in the future.
