Laura obtained her CDFA™ designation in May 2015 after completing her self study program through the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™.
Much like the CFP® designation, the CDFA™ designation has rigorous education requirements, as well as a high level of ethical and professional standards.
CDFA™ practitioners agree to abide by a strict code of professional conduct known as the IDFA™ Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility, which sets forth their ethical responsibilities to the public, clients, employers, and other professionals.
CDFA™ practitioners must have a minimum of 3 years work experience in a financial or legal capacity prior to earning the right to use the CDFA™ certification mark.

3) A CDFA™ can help her clients to avoid long-term financial pitfalls related to divorce agreements.
4) CDFA™ professionals can assist their clients with developing detailed household budgets to help avoid post-divorce financial struggles.
5) Using a CDFA™ professional can reduce the amount of apprehension and misunderstanding about the divorce process.
