AAFCPAs’ Director of Business Valuation Services, David Consigli, Jr., CPA, ABV, CPVA, CDFA, has been awarded the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) credential issued by The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA).
Dave was awarded the CDFA credential in recognition of his earned expertise in valuing the financial effect of any given divorce settlement. Dave earned the designation in response to overwhelming demand from lawyers, mediators, and separated individuals seeking his services. 100% of divorces involve financial settlements, and in an effort to keep costs down, many couples are looking outside the legal system for help navigating through a divorce. Their desire to cut back on legal and other professional fees has led a growing number of divorcing couples to turn to CDFA professionals to help them preserve their family’s finances.
Dave provides advice to clients and their attorneys on financial issues that will affect the rest of their lives, including:
- Personal vs. marital property
- Valuing and dividing property
- Retirement assets and pensions
- Spousal and child support
- Splitting the house
- Tax problems and solutions
- Expert witness testimony
- Tax law and financial issues affecting divorce
