Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™ Ethan Quirin recently opened a practice dedicated to assisting divorcing couples with the financial ramifications of a legal settlement. He holds a certification from the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™ (IDFA™), a national organization based in Southfield, Michigan.
This will expand his practice beyond the advisory services he currently provides to individuals and business owners.
A CDFA™ works with clients individually or as couples, helping them to come to grips with the financial reality of their individual divorce situation.
Developing comprehensive insight of the short and long-term financial effects of divorce can save valuable time, money and distress, especially if the process is conducted early in the legal proceedings. Though Pennsylvania has a relatively low divorce rate – in 2004 it trailed only the District of Columbia and Massachusetts for the lowest rate in America – there is still a significant need for financial counseling associated with divorce as the state has averaged over 35,000
divorces and annulments during the last ten years.
“Misinformation and misconceptions about the divorce process can be detrimental,”
says Mr. Quirin.
“Many have false expectations that they will be able to secure a divorce settlement allowing them to continue with their accustomed style of living.
That’s not always possible.
I’m there to help ensure a good, stable economic future and prevent long-term regret with all financial decisions made during the divorce process.”
Mr. Quirin is one of a select few financial advisors in the Philadelphia Metropolitan Area who have obtained their certification and are now practicing as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst™. Because he also obtained his law degree from an area law school – a part of his background that places him in an even further exclusive category – Mr. Quirin is able to work on a closer, more strategic level, with an individual’s divorce attorney than most CDFAs.
His practice deals with the financial issues of divorce as well as other planning services and includes work with both individuals and couples.
For additional information or to schedule a meeting with Ethan Quirin, he can be contacted (610) 354.0288 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ethan Quirin is a member of the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts™. He is also a fully licensed financial advisor and a MBA graduate from the University of Notre Dame Mendoza School of Business.
Mr. Quirin offers securities and advisory services through Geneos Wealth Management, Inc. Member FINRA/SIPC.
Founded in 1993, IDFA™ currently has more than 2,000 CDFAs across the United States and Canada.
The number of professionals receiving the CDFA™ designation continues to grow at nearly 15% each year. The designation and this niche industry are expanding rapidly as more people across the country search for alternative divorce processes – from collaborative law to mediation – rather than litigating their case using lawyers as their only line of defense.
