Frequently Asked Questions

Dianne Shumway, MBA, CDFA®, CRC works closely with her clients during divorce. Her expertise resides in working with clients who may see themselves at a turning point in their lives.

If you’re worried about the financial aspects of divorce and wish to understand how your assets will be divided, a CDFA® (Certified Divorce Financial Analyst) can guide you through the process. While an attorney provides legal counsel, they may not possess the specialized financial expertise a CDFA® offers.

Once we determine that we can assist you, we’ll thoroughly examine your financial situation, including your income, assets, and debts. We’ll discuss your financial goals and assess their feasibility in the division process, taking into account potential tax implications and the impact on cash flow. We’ll explore various scenarios to help you understand your options. We aim to provide you with realistic expectations for your financial life after divorce.

Upon completing the lifestyle analysis, we can assess the feasibility of your goals and explore creative ways to accommodate them.

We can serve as a neutral party, assisting both of you during mediation. Alternatively, we can act as an advocate for either party, helping to clarify the financial implications. If you’re unsure about the amount of support you might owe or receive, we can offer estimates to guide you.

There are steps you can take to prepare. Each situation is unique, and gathering information before discussing divorce with your spouse can be advantageous. Knowledge is empowering, and scheduling a consultation with us could be a pivotal step for your future.

Attorneys and mediators specialize in facilitating the legal aspect of divorces and are experts in the law. However, they don’t possess specialized financial expertise or consider your financial well-being beyond the divorce process. With only one opportunity to get your divorce settlement right, we concentrate on your financial situation, considering taxes, asset division, and cash flow consequences and ensuring a fair resolution as you move forward. Our primary aim is to furnish you with essential financial insights upfront, thereby reducing the time you spend with your attorney.

You are in the right place: fact-finding and information-gathering. You can meet us for a free consultation and we’ll guide you on your options. We partner with many divorce professionals and will help you find the right resources.
