Bill Lako, Principal Managing Director of Henssler Financial, discusses the importance of financial advising in divorce with editor Matt Allen. 

Lako describes how a certified divorce financial analyst (CDFA) can help individuals involved in the divorce process protect assets, sort out complicated tax and financial matters and come up with an equitable situation. 

CDFA's often make sure that their clients are thinking clearly and can come up with a long-term plan for financial planning. Lako also mentions that a CPA can be hired in the divorce process to help look at tax matters and financial matters in the moment.

If you are divorcing over the next three months – that is, over the holiday season – then believe it or not, you may be divorcing at the best time of the year.

This is because many judges will allow you and your soon-to-be-ex to delay or speed up the divorce process, within a reasonable time, for tax purposes. 

For example, if the two of you filing together can take advantage of more exemptions and deductions, not to mention the preferential “married/filing jointly” tax status, you may wish to delay your divorce through the beginning of January 2014.
