Helping Homeowners Prepare for Life After Divorce: A Holistic Approach to Divorce Mortgage Planning

An astonishing 70% of divorces involve real estate, and in many cases, this is a couple’s largest asset. At this critical time in their personal and financial lives, these couples need guidance from someone who understands all the pieces of the puzzle—family law, financial and tax planning, real property, and mortgage planning.

At Divorce Lending Association, our mission is to provide education and training to mortgage professionals who wish to help divorcing homeowners make informed decisions about their home equity solutions and mortgage financing opportunities. Our experiences have shown us that you can’t think traditionally when serving the needs of this unique population. To bridge the disconnect that’s often found between the various professionals involved in the divorce process, we developed the Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP™) divorce mortgage planning program. 

A CDLP™ helps divorcing borrowers who are currently being underserved by the real estate and mortgage industry as a whole. While a mortgage lender doesn’t know if they’re doing more harm than good overall, a CDLP™ looks at the whole picture to help a client prepare for life after divorce.

The role of a Certified Divorce Lending Professional is not to provide tax or legal advice. As a member of the professional divorce team, a CDLP™ helps integrate mortgage financing into the divorcing homeowner’s short-term and long-term financial and investment goals—minimizing taxes and interest expenses while maximizing cash flow.

Contact us today to learn more about the requirements for earning your CDLP™ certification, as well as the other coaching, training, business development, and mentoring opportunities available through Divorce Lending Association.
