Why Use a Divorce Financial Planner?

DuPage County Divorce Financial Analysts

Certified Divorce Financial Planners in DuPage County, IL

When you are contemplating or in the very early stages of divorce, you will encounter a wide range of financial related challenges. Sometimes this can be overwhelming. Not only are you experiencing the emotional stress of permanently splitting from your spouse, but also the uncertainty that comes with building a new and unexpected future alone. At The Divorce Financial Group, LLC, we understand that financial issues are often among the most complex and difficult considerations of the entire divorce process.

The experienced team members of our firm are very well equipped to help you navigate all of the financial aspects of your divorce from the beginning to the conclusion of your situation and to help you make the best possible decisions along the way.

What Is a CDFA?

A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst is a financial professional who has undergone specific training and acquired the experience necessary to qualify for a CDFA™ certification, and has the financial expertise to provide you with your options. Each party in a divorce has the right to work with their own CDFA™, or the divorcing couple can agree to hire the same professional. A CDFA™ will not replace a divorce attorney. Instead, he or she can work with your attorney so that all of your financial concerns can be addressed from both a practical and legal perspective. The time you spend with your attorney will be more productive and less costly because you will be equipped with the financial knowledge and tools you need to move your case forward.

Our clients transition successfully into their new financial life with a clear, workable plan to move forward with confidence.

A CDFA™ from The Divorce Financial Group, LLC can offer reliable, forward-thinking guidance on all types of financial issues related to divorce, including but not limited to:

  • Provide valuable information and a comprehensive approach to your entire financial situation including budgeting (pre-and post divorce), managing debt, creating long-term and short-term goals, and other aspects of your overall financial management.
  • Provide timely and cost efficient guidance on what financial documents are needed for us to properly prepare your Financial Affidavit for you and your attorney.
  • CDFAs also help attorneys by helping the client make financial sense of the proposals. CDFA's do not give legal advice but provide lawyers with the details and tools necessary to insure the best outcome for their case. See for more information.
  • Analyze both marital and non-marital assets and liabilities of both spouses including retirement and savings accounts, stock options, bank accounts, etc. for settlement options.
  • Working with your other team members regarding alimony/maintenance, child support and settlement options that are most favorable to you and your situation. We also provide options and guidance regarding continuity in payments to you and your children in the event of your ex-spouse's disability or death.
  • Provide additional services to our divorce clients through our relationship with other professional partners on important aspects of your future. These include but are not limited to health care coverage, college planning (student loans, scholarships, and funding options), estate planning attorneys, accountants, and if needed for family businesses, forensic accountants.

With more than 30 years of experience, our team will also help you set and achieve long-term goals for your financial health as you move forward after your divorce. We partner with Northpoint Financial Group to implement investment management, insurance, and financial strategies for our clients.

Client-Focused Financial Services for All Types of Illinois Divorce Cases

At The Divorce Financial Group, LLC, we know that some divorces are intensely bitter and require months of courtroom litigation while others are relatively amicable and are mostly handled through meetings and negotiation. No matter how your divorce will be resolved, a CDFA can provide valuable insight throughout the process. If your divorce is fairly low-stress, we can work with you individually or with you and your spouse together to create strategies that you both can use. In more volatile situations, we can offer the guidance and tools that you need as you seek a favorable outcome.
