The Collaborative Approach

A Collaborative approach to divorce offers the privacy of mediation and the security of having your own advocate to guide you. A typical Collaborative Divorce Team consists of an attorney for each individual, one or two Divorce Coaches, and a Financial Neutral like Brenda. Depending on your needs, other professionals like a Child Specialist may be involved.

What are the fundamental responsibilities and benefits of the CDFA® in a Collaborative process?

Working with you as a neutral CDFA®, Brenda can help you and your spouse to make informed decisions about your financial futures.

As a financial neutral, Brenda compiles, organizes, and educates the couple about the financial information relating to your divorce.  She is not on a “side,” rather her role is to help you understand enough about your finances to make informed decisions about your settlement and the impact on your futures.
