MARLBOROUGH, Mass., Oct. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ (IDFA™) is pleased to announce that Leah Upton of Ferris Capital in Marlborough, MA recently completed a specialized educational program in professional divorce analysis and is now a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®).
Ms. Upton is trained to provide financial analysis and assistance to people going through a divorce. She evaluates both short and long-term tax implications of dividing property and the financial impact of various settlement options for dividing marital property (including pensions) and child and spousal support payments. Developing comprehensive insight of the financial effects of divorce can save valuable time, money, and distress, especially if the process is conducted early in the legal proceedings.
"Misinformation and misconceptions about the divorce process can be detrimental," says Leah Upton (CFP®, CRC, CDFA®). "We examine and analyze the financial issues of a divorce, providing our clients and their lawyers with data to help strengthen their case. We help our clients avoid the common financial pitfalls of divorce by offering valuable insight into the pros and cons of different settlement proposals."
IDFA™ trains professional – financial planners, accountants, and lawyers – to determine the financial needs and outcomes for couples after divorce.
Founded in 1993, IDFA™ currently has more than 2,000 CDFAs across the United States and Canada. The number of professionals receiving the CDFA® designation continues to grow at nearly 15% each year. The designation and this niche industry are expanding rapidly as more people across the country search for alternative divorce processes – from collaborative law to mediation – rather than litigating their case using lawyers as their only line of defense.
