Ed Kerns CDFA®, CFP®
Ed Kerns is a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® and is the founder of Clear Divorce Options, LLC. He is also a Certified Financial Planner® and founder of Kerns Wealth Management an independent, fee-only wealth management firm. Ed has served as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA), a DivoreCare group leader, and is trained in divorce and family mediation.
In the past, he has been approached by prospective wealth management clients with questions related to divorce. Unfortunately, most of the time it’s been after the divorce was finalized. In trying to help clients move forward after their settlement, Ed became more aware of the financial complexities of divorce and the need to start the divorce process early working with a trained financial expert.
Divorce financial planning is unique and separate from traditional financial planning. As a result, Clear Divorce Options was created to serve individuals going through divorce to ensure they fully understand the financial consequences of their settlement and to best position them for a secure financial future after divorce.
