Mosaic Financial Partners is pleased to announce that client advisor and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM practitioner Mary L. Ballin earned the designation of Certified Divorce Financial Analyst  (CDFA®), as awarded and maintained by the Institute for Divorce Financial AnalystsTM.

“A CDFA® can explain various financial variables that can impact the decisions made during the divorce process,” said Ms. Ballin. “Divorce is a major life transition. Having a CDFA® by your side can help reduce the stress of this change and can help you to understand the pros and cons of your various options while avoiding emotional roadblocks that may hinder you from having a smooth transition into post-divorce life. My personal passion is empowering women to make educated financial decisions, and earning the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® designation helps further this mission.”

I always say, during divorce, in the decisions that come with separating assets, every dollar is not created equal.

Ms. Ballin is focused, always, on helping clients make equitable and secure decisions. “I always say, during divorce, in the decisions that come with separating assets, every dollar is not created equal. A CDFA® will make you aware of the tax implications and other financial impacts of settlement options that you might not have considered otherwise.”
