No, this is not a do-it-yourself (DIY) type of course. We do not recommend the DIY approach for this very complicated and confusing process. There are many decisions you’ll make that affect you in the future. And you need an attorney to process your divorce. You may also need a mediator, Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®), and a therapist throughout the your journey. The Divorce U Solutions course was designed to provide you with a map of the entire process: the steps to take and the tools and guides you need to design a secure future.

A Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA®) is an experienced financial professional who is educated, certified, and qualified to analyze specific financial issues in divorce. A CDFA® is a member of the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts, the premier national organization dedicated to the education, certification, and promotion of the use of financial professions and planning in the divorce arena. A CDFA®® is someone who comes from a financial planning, accounting or legal background and goes through an intensive training program to become skilled in analyzing and providing expertise related to the financial issues of divorce.  A CDFA® uses his or her knowledge of tax law, asset distribution, and short- and long-term financial planning to achieve an equitable settlement.

A CDFA® confidentially examines your personal property, retirement assets, investment accounts, current earnings, future earning capacity, and expenses, and consider alimony, tax implications, health care costs, the value of your business or partnership, and more. Your CDFA® provides valuable information on financial issues related to the divorce, such as tax consequences, dividing pension plans, health care coverage, stock option elections, and others. They work with you, your attorney or mediator to analyze proposals for equitable distribution. With the advice and help of a CDFA®, you increase your chances of arriving at a settlement that fully addresses your long-term financial needs.

A CDFA® explains the short-term and long-term effects of a proposed settlement. This way, you and your spouse both have a clear view of their financial future. CDFA®s help make financial sense of proposals, help attorneys determine alimony needs and payment abilities, and provide expert witness testimony in trials and arbitrations.

This course does not take the place of an attorney, a mediator, or a therapist. This course supports your work with your attorney, since you’ll be familiar with the stages of the divorce process, be cognizant of the issues, and how to plan for your future. This course is also beneficial when working with a mediator and even a family therapist. When you know what’s coming and how to prepare, the process becomes more time and cost efficient.   With this valuable information, you focus on healing the pain and anxiety and addressing parenting issues with a family therapist.

Nope. This course is valuable for anyone who is thinking about getting divorced.

We have included exercises, resources, and worksheets to help you gain clarity about your feelings about your divorce and what you truly want from this life-transition. These tools and guides are meant to help you start this process of discovery; they are not intended to take the place of a family therapist.

Every divorce is unique and has its own set of circumstances. In this course, we do provide scenarios where an attorney would most likely be needed or where a mediator might be a better fit. It is always best to make a decision based on your experience with your spouse

Absolutely not. In fact, we encourage you to watch one section at a time and to do the work we suggest before moving on to the next lesson. Each lesson builds on the last; taking your time and doing the work as comprehensively as possible is most valuable to you.

Karen and Catherine will stay in touch with you via email to help you continue to move through the course; they’ll also provide you with additional tips.  If you need additional support or more personal guidance beyond the course, you may set up a consultation with Catherine and Karen through the Divorce U Solutions website.
