What is a CDLP®?

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

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

The professional mortgage lender is a key member of the professional divorce team. The mortgage lender should be involved during the settlement process to address any concerns with support structure, mortgage financing concerns and more if mortgage financing is a goal post decree. Many times the mortgage lender is not utilized during the settlement process but is often just the ‘post decree referral’ which unfortunately can create significant challenges for the divorcing clients obtaining financing.
