Our services include deeply discounted realtor fees through Gabrianna Realty to list your home or other properties should that be part of your settlement. Gabrianna Realty is an active real estate brokerage firm with the Houston Association of Realtors servicing Houston and all the surrounding cities of Houston. In most cases, the savings pay for the cost of your divorce settlement services. Gabrianna Realty Team of Realtors can also find your new home at no cost to you.
We are with you throughout the entire process including post-divorce. Having a CDFA® Professional could save you thousands of dollars and potentially serious repercussions down the line.
What is a CDFA®?
A CDFA® is one who specializes in the financial issues surrounding divorce. The role of the Certified Divorce Financial Analyst includes acting as an advisor to one party’s divorce lawyer, or as a mediator for both parties. A CDFA® uses his or her knowledge of tax law, asset distribution, and short- and long-term financial planning to achieve an equitable settlement.
Because YDFA can handle every aspect of your divorce process. It begins with creating your settlement agreement through mediation. By applying tax optimization and an accurate valuation of ALL assets (investments, retirement accounts, pensions, businesses, expenses, rental properties, etc.), YDFA can help craft a creative settlement that reflects your desired outcome, quite possibly saving both of you taxes so you can keep more of your hard-earned money. Unless you’re opting for an uncontested pro se divorce (do-it-yourself), we have attorneys to draft your settlement, so you can rest assured that the legal aspects are covered.
Once the agreement is reached, YDFA has a team of professionals to help you execute it.
