WHY USE A CDFA™
Mitchell Hayes founder Wendy Hayes is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ or a CDFA™ and her goal is to assist her clients and their lawyers in better understanding how the financial decisions they make today will impact their financial future.

Financial problems can tear a marriage apart, and are often the primary factor that leads to divorce. Once a decision to separate or divorce has been reached, all sorts of questions bubble to the surface. These questions are often clouded by wounded emotions and accompanied by mutual accusations, which comes as no surprise. If a couple cannot solve their financial difficulties while the marriage was underway, it is unlikely that they will be able to agree on pressing financial issues when it has fallen apart.
