Divorce Lending Certification Program

Now Offering Both Live or Online Platforms


The Divorce Lending Market is Much Bigger than Simply Marketing to Divorce Attorneys. It is a true business opportunity for mortgage professionals to develop a focused and sustainable business plan.


The problem is mortgage professionals don't understand that divorcing clients are not your typical home sellers, buyers or refinance clients. To succeed working with divorcing clients requires a strong understanding of how the puzzle pieces of divorce are not only connected but just as importantly how disconnected they are.


Join other mortgage professionals nationwide and set divorcing clients up for success post divorce while building a stable referral source for growing your business.




Why add divorce referrals to your Mortgage Practice?


  • Divorce Referrals are not cyclical.
  • Divorce Referrals are not affected by the inventory shortage in many market places.
  • Divorce Referrals do not shop you because you are part of the Professional Divorce Team.
  • Divorce Referrals add stability and structure to your mortgage business planning.


The Divorce Lending Market is Much Bigger than Simply Marketing to Divorce Attorneys



70% of all divorces in the United States involve Real Estate.

47% of divorces with real estate either sell or refinance the marital home.





Become a Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP)


Open doors to Law Offices and other Divorce Professionals with a solid knowledge base that goes beyond mortgage financing PLUS marketing platforms that include the opportunity to present Continuing Legal Education classes to your target audience!


I love the direction my career has taken with Divorce Lending and the CDLP Certification.  My presentations have been to CPA Firms, Attorneys and CDFA (Certified Divorce Financial Analyst).  I have received a great number of referral thus far and it also has exposed me to a lot of new contacts I would not have ordinarily made.

What is a Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP)?


A Certified Divorce Lending Professional brings the financial knowledge and expertise of a solid understanding of the connection between Divorce and Family Law, IRS Tax Rules and mortgage financing strategies as they all relate to real estate and mortgage financing in a divorce situation.



Today more than ever, Certified Divorce Lending Professionals (CDLP) are an essential resource for divorcing couples, divorce attorneys and financial planners.


A professional divorce team has a range of team players including the attorney, financial planner, accountant, appraiser, mediator and yes, a divorce lending professional. Every team member has a significant role ensuring the divorcing client is set to succeed post decree. A CDLP is the perfect addition to the professional divorce team.


Benefits of a Certification





Build Credibility: CDLP Certification demonstrates a deeper knowledge and commitment to practicing divorce lending.


Differentiate Yourself in the Field:  CDLP Certification enables you to stand out in the industry and communicate your expertise and credibility to your clients and referral partners. Learn to be ahead of the referral by being involved during the divorce process and not a post decree referral.


The Certified Divorce Lending Professional Certification program adds so much more to your mortgage practice. The CDLP program not only provides you with the knowledge base required to effectively practice in divorce lending, it provides you with the tools and resources to  build your business as a Certified Divorce Lending Professional.
