Mediation & Collaboration
CDFA in Cleveland, Ohio
Rebecca S. Murphy
Certified Divorce Financial Analyst
As a CDFA, I'm the advocate in your corner with the financial knowledge and experience to help effectively guide you through your marriage dissolution.
Less strenuous and less costly than traditional divorce litigation, mediation still allows couples to end their marriages in a way that works best for them.
Why Work With Me?
An Economical Choice
Taking a divorce to trial can get overwhelming, both emotionally and financially. But if you enlist a CDFA like me, you make the more cost-effective choice. I can also help my clients avoid future financial pitfalls that stem from a component in the divorce agreements. When you work with me, I'll forecast the long-term effects of your potential divorce settlement to see how your assets can be protected today, tomorrow, and in retirement.
At Facilitated Divorce Solutions, I offer my clients both strong legal knowledge and extensive financial planning experience. My focus in my field enables me to be creative in finding solutions, and to provide sound, personalized guidance to those going through a collaborative divorce or mediation process. No matter what path you're taking in your marriage dissolution, I'm here to support you and help you find your financial footing.
“She introduced compassionate sensibility and clarity to a difficult procedure. She also demonstrated an ability to assess the dynamics of a situation and steer it in a more positive direction.”
"Becky’s experience as a financial specialist was invaluable. It reduced conflict, expedited solutions, lowered stress environment and gave me more confidence and control."
What is a CDFA?
A certified divorce financial analyst, also known as a CDFA, assists individuals as they work through their divorce. As a CDFA, I use my tax law knowledge, asset distribution experience, and financial planning skills to help you get through the process.
Get the Support
It's time to start putting yourself first. Divorce cases too often rely on attorneys to sort out all the issues — child custody, property division, financial support, and more — but you deserve to have authority over important decisions that will surely impact your life. That's why I'm here, so you can maintain control over your finances and your future.
If you're seeking a quality, economical solution to your marriage dissolution, it's a great idea to hire a CDFA first — to get your finances organized and a potential game plan laid out — before hiring a divorce attorney. This intentional preparation can help avoid courtroom and litigation expenses, as well as potential pitfalls years down the road.
As a CDFA, I'm better equipped than a traditional financial advisor to help a person or couple going through a divorce. Traditional financial advisors don’t usually have much experience in splitting assets or familiarity with the law. But at Facilitated Divorce Solutions, I prepare my Ohio clients to live financially independent lives after divorce.
