During this emotional and tense time in anyone’s life, one should consider hiring a certified divorce financial analyst (CDFA), along with an attorney, to help you plan your financial future today. CDFA (as well as CPA, AIFA, and AIF) Monica M. Garver from Prime Solutions Advisors, has some financial tips for women to consider while forging ahead with a divorce from their spouse.
Ms. Garver, a Duquesne University graduate (BS in accounting), is a certified financial planner and investment advisor, along with being a certified divorce financial analyst.
