What does CDFA even mean? The CDFA after Anthony’s name means Certified Divorce Financial Analyst. At McCain and Samons we help people with business decisions, planning a new business, financial planning and over the past few years we have been taking on the role is Forensic Accountants.
When couples are getting a divorce, or businesses split up, we serve as a neutral third party. We look at the books, where income comes from, what the expenditures are, and from a financial point of view, help the parties come to a fair and equitable settlement.
Often Divorce attorneys will ask us to look and see if everything is on the up and up. I know this may shock you, but sometimes people hide certain assets they don’t feel they should have to share with a spouse. While on the face of it, this may seem like a good idea, it never is. We have ways to ferrett out assets by creating a paper trail, and no matter how creative a person gets, we almost always manage to unravel their schemes.
If you are thinking of divorcing, or you suspect a partner in your organization is moving funds around, give us a call sooner rather than later. If we can get access to the financials before people have the chance to start moving funds around, then we can do a better job of keeping things on track.
