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

  • Learn how to build your practice as a Certified Divorce Lending Professional (CDLP)
  • And So Much More!

The CDLP's Responsibilities

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.

What People are Saying:

"As the live class began, the expectation level was really high. Without a doubt there was going to be questions that challenged the validity of the knowledge that we were just about to be given. There was so much good information given that it surpassed my expectation. The information that I got really does now set me apart from other lenders. I’ve become an asset, and no longer feel like I’m a commodity. This certification comes highly recommended to those who want to be set apart from the competition."
G. Anduray, AZ
“If you are planning on investing in yourself and getting into a different market, don’t hesitate to take the CDLP program. I have been in the mortgage industry for over 20 years and am always looking for different ways to approach the mortgage market. This program allows you to use the knowledge you have of the mortgage industry and apply it to people who truly need your help. People going through divorce need guidance in a time that is very stressful, I want to be that person. By using this class you get a better understanding of how your investors look at divorce while helping people who truly need it get back on track. Jody and the CDLP program gives you the bigger picture on divorce financing, tax implications and how to help. I highly recommend taking the class. ”

"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."
Beverly Fairbanks, RI
