The decision to file for divorce is always a difficult one, especially with the division of assets. Today, there are many resources available for individuals contemplating divorce and wondering about how it will affect their future finances. Both divorce financial analysts certified by the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA) and Crossroads Investigations can assist during this process.
The IDFA is the authority of divorce planning theory and its application. Divorce financial analysts who are IDFA-certified assist their clients and attorneys with understanding the implications, both long-term and short-term, of dividing property, help analyze complex retirement plans and pensions, determine which hard assets the client can afford, and help assess potential issues with taxes. Certified divorce financial analysts have the training and the tools to ensure that their clients achieve the most equitable settlement possible.
In the event one of the parties in a divorce does not know exactly which assets the other party has, Crossroads Investigations can help. Crossroads Investigations has several asset, bank account, and brokerage account search options that can help uncover any potential hidden assets that the other party may have during a divorce proceeding.
