Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
The Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts (IDFA) has recognized Harry Pappas Jr., CFP® as a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA). Harry completed an extensive four-module course, eight hours of exams and is one of approximately 5,000 professionals in the U.S. and Canada to become a CDFA. On-going continuing education is required to maintain certification.
“If you’ve noticed more commercials for divorce lawyers airing on local TV channels recently, there’s good reason,” says Pappas. According to a 2014 Men’s Health Survey Jacksonville, Florida is the sixth worst city for marriage (highest divorce rate) in the United States. “Transitioning from married to unmarried is often a difficult and challenging process emotionally and financially. It is critical for people going through divorce to understand the financial implications of decisions regarding property, child support and spousal support," Pappas says. As a CDFA™, Pappas works closely with clients, their attorneys and CPAs to determine the short-term and long-term financial impact of a proposed divorce settlement.
The CDFA™ designation is the only comprehensive divorce-planning designation listed by the CFP™ Board (The Board of Certified Financial Planners™) in its listing of professional certification programs. CDFA™ professionals are in high demand as more than two million North Americans will divorce this year, and 100% of those divorces involve financial settlements.
Harry has been a Financial Advisor since 1985. He is a graduate of Florida State University and a native of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Harry focuses on money management and estate planning strategies for high net worth individuals, business owners and professionals.

Ask Harry what his secret to success is and he quickly replies; "Passion! I am driven by a burning desire to serve my clients and I have boundless enthusiasm and love for my work.

The use of the CDFA™ designation does not permit Wells Fargo Advisors or its Financial Advisors to provide legal advice, nor is it meant to imply that the firm or its associates are acting as experts in this field. Wells Fargo Advisors and its affiliates do not provide legal or tax advice. Transactions requiring tax consideration should be reviewed carefully with your accountant or tax advisor. Any estate plan should be reviewed by an attorney who specializes in estate planning and is licensed to practice law in your state.
