Comments: Noticing a need for a more objective and robust analytical treatment of the financial aspects of divorce, Mr. Toohey pursued the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts' 'Financial Aspects of Divorce' program and became a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA) in 1998. Coupled with his strong background in other areas of financial planning, Mr. Toohey brings a unique perspective to people going through divorce, clarifying the issues involved in reaching a financially fair and equitable settlement, and quantifying the long-term financial ramifications of various settlement options. He is instrumental in assisting clients, attorneys, mediators, and collaborative divorce groups to evaluate separation agreements, helping them arrive at a settlement beneficial to all by empowering them with financial information that is often overlooked in the divorce process. Through the use of software specifically designed to handle the financial aspects of divorce, Mr. Toohey generates sophisticated financial projections addressing the long-term effects of dividing property, integrating into his analysis tax issues, pension plan issues, earnings capabilities, spousal and child support options, liquidity concerns, inflation rates, rates of return on investments, and other financial issues related to separation agreements. The informative reports generated by Mr. Toohey foster dialogue between the divorcing parties and facilitate settlements, keeping everyone out of court and dramatically reducing the cost of divorce.
