The Certified Divorce Financial Advisor (CDFA) consultants traditionally work with people to plan their future post-divorce. The advantage of working with a CDFA is they take a long-range view of your financial future throughout the divorce process and beyond.

Forensic Accountant. This expertise is necessary if perhaps you suspect your spouse of hiding money or accounts. They can analyze the financial information for accuracy and uncover inconsistencies.

Real Estate Appraiser. Clearly, any real estate owned by the couple will need to be divided. An accurate estimation of value is required, and this is where the appraiser comes in.


About Laura Aiello

Laura Aiello is a Divorce Strategist Coach for people who are facing the drastic life change of ending a relationship and want to do it in a holistic, growth-oriented way.

As an author and speaker, as well as coach, she believes in educating people on the decision making process, the “job” of divorce and, most importantly, how the challenges presented can be used to create a fuller, more realized life.

As a survivor of domestic violence, Laura understands the full implications of leaving a harmful relationship and the glorious opportunity that doing so can present.

Starting over from scratch in mid-life, she was able to recreate her life, rising to serve on the executive team of one of the largest fitness companies in the U.S. and eventually finding real love in a new, healthy marriage.

After parting ways with the corporate life, she took the bold step of reinventing herself yet again, getting certified as a coach and combining her love of health and wellness with her experience in high conflict divorce.

Bringing these elements together give her the unique edge her clients are looking for when faced with the end of their marriage – and the beginning of their new life.

As founder of The Divorce Strategist, Laura pulls on all your strengths, as well as turning your perceived “failures” into valuable lessons. This practical, solution based formula is the basis of her coaching practice today.
