Jamie M. Lima

CDFA® (CERTIFIED DIVORCE FINANCIAL ANALYST ®), MBA, CFP®

After watching my parents go through a divorce at a young age, and going through a tremendously expensive and emotionally-draining one myself in 2017, I launched Allegiant Divorce Solutions as a sister company to my financial planning firm, Woodson Wealth Management.

I recognize the challenges people face as they decide how to handle their finances relating to divorce. My parents struggled and it was challenging for me, too. Looking back, there were mistakes I made during my own divorce that could have been avoided had I had the support of a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst ®.

At present, armed with this ever-growing knowledge and almost 20 years of financial planning experience, I am dedicated to helping my clients navigate the complex aspects of divorce and gain a fair settlement, with much less stress.

Kate G.

In the most difficult time of my life, I found myself in a divorce. I had emotional support but needed someone to sort out the asset division and it was initially overwhelming. Even before hiring a lawyer, I quickly found out I would need to submit mine and my soon to be ex‘s financials to a neutral party to create a document outlining community and separate property. This would allow us to attend our mediations prepared and hopefully settle our divorce out of court.

We found Jamie and Allegiant Divorce Services and immediately felt at ease about the process. He uses a safe and secure document portal which allowed us to securely submit what he needed to create a report for us.

Hiring Allegiant Divorce Services was the first time I felt productive in this divorce process. He communicated in a timely manner and met with us on zoom, always eager to make sure we had our questions answered. Upon receiving Jamie’s final documents outlining and totaling our assets, we finally feel prepared to move forward with our divorce. Because of the training and certification Jamie has, he is also able to be a legal expert witness if it does go to court. 

I highly recommend Allegiant Divorce Services!

Jamie was a wealth of knowledge, and was able to explain how to begin the process of restoring your financial health after a divorce to our audience in a really concise and relatable manner.

A great person to work with, can’t recommend enough!

While both professionals play crucial roles in divorce proceedings, they bring different expertise and focus areas to the table:

Attorney:

    • Attorneys specialize in legal matters and represent clients in divorce proceedings.
    • They provide legal advice, negotiate settlements, draft legal documents, and represent clients in court if necessary.
    • Attorneys focus on ensuring that clients’ legal rights and interests are protected throughout the divorce process.

Certified Divorce Financial Analyst ® (CDFA®):

    • CDFA® professionals specialize in analyzing and advising on the financial aspects of divorce.
    • They assess the financial implications of various settlement options, including asset division, support payments, and tax considerations.

While attorneys handle legal matters, CDFA® professionals offer specialized financial analysis and guidance.  Collaboratively, these professionals help clients navigate the legal, financial, and tax aspects of divorce, ensuring a comprehensive approach to achieving fair and equitable settlements.

CDFA® professionals specialize in the financial aspects of divorce and provide analysis and guidance while mediators facilitate communication and negotiation between divorcing spouses to help them reach agreements collaboratively. Both professionals play valuable roles in helping couples navigate the divorce process effectively and minimize conflict. Here at Allegiant, we do both.
