What Is The Difference Between a CDFA® And An Attorney?

by Kristen Hilty

A CDFA® Works With Your Attorney

The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ (IDFA) highly recommends that any person getting a divorce seek legal counsel. The role of a CDFA® is to assist the attorney, not replace the attorney.

When contemplating a divorce, the first professional that comes to mind is an attorney. Typically, a financial advisor is not considered until after the divorce becomes final. This can be a mistake. Not all attorneys are experts on answering financial questions. Your attorney is an expert in the law, but they do not necessarily know how to answer intricate financial details that concern tax issues, IRS rulings, capital gains, dividing pensions, etc. An attorney and a CDFA® always complement each other, especially if your case is litigated. A CDFA® can act as an expert witness who has worked on your case right from the start.
