CDLP's Responsibilities and the Team Approach
The ultimate goal is to always best meet the needs of the divorcing client. In over 70% of all divorces in the United States real estate is involved and most often, so is the need for mortgage financing. Due to the unique mortgage financing requirements that divorcing clients often face, a Certified Divorce Lending Professional is a major member of the Professional Divorce Team.
The role of the CDLP is to not only help the divorcing client, but the other members of the professional divorce team understand the opportunities available as well as the challenges divorce can bring to mortgage financing during and after the divorce. When the CDLP is involved during the divorce process and not after the fact, many potential financing struggles can be avoided with valuable and educated input from the Certified Divorce Lending Professional.
The CDLP understands their role is not to provide legal or tax advice. Their role on the professional divorce team is to help by providing insight on mortgage financing opportunities and recognize potential legal or tax concerns that may arise in any given circumstance while bringing these concerns or opportunities to the attention of other team members.
