What is a Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP™)?

Above all else, the CDLP™ uses their knowledge and expertise to help the divorcing homeowner make a more informed decision regarding their home equity solutions and mortgage financing options. The role of the CDLP™ is to assist the client and their lawyer or financial advisor to understand how the decisions they make today will impact the client’s ability to obtain mortgage financing in the future.

A Certified Divorce Lending Professional brings the financial and background knowledge of a solid understanding of the connection between Divorce and Family Law, financial and tax planning, and mortgage financing strategies as they all relate to real property and mortgage financing in a divorce situation.

In over 70% of all divorces in the United States, real property is involved and most often, so is the need for mortgage planning. Due to the unique mortgage financing requirements that divorcing clients often face, a Certified Divorce Lending Professional is a significant member of the Professional Divorce Team.
