The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA) is pleased to announce that Antoine T. Williams of Antoine Williams & Associates Financial Services in Shelburne recently completed a specialized educational program in professional divorce analysis and is now a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA).
Williams is trained to provide financial information and assistance to people going through a divorce. He evaluates the tax implications of dividing property and the financial implications of various settlement options for dividing marital property (including pensions) and child and spousal support payments.
“At Antoine Williams & Associates Financial Services, we help determine the short-term and long-term financial impact of a proposed divorce settlement to make sure it works now as well as down the road,” says Antoine Williams (AAMS, CDFA). “We examine and analyze the financial issues of a divorce, providing our clients and their lawyers with data to help strengthen their case. We help our clients avoid the common financial pitfalls of divorce by offering valuable insight into the pros and cons of different settlement proposals.”
IDFA trains professionals–financial planners, accountants, and lawyers–to determine the financial needs and outcomes for couples after divorce.
Founded in 1993, IDFA currently has more than 2,000 CDFAs across the United States and Canada. The number of professionals receiving the CDFA designation continues to grow at nearly 15 percent each year. The designation and this niche industry are expanding rapidly as more people across the country search for alternative divorce processes–from collaborative law to mediation–rather than litigating their case using lawyer as their only line of defense.
